When you reach the point in your life where you’ve earned the house of your dreams, you want to ensure everything about it is just as you want. Delaware real estate is a great place to invest in the kind of house you’ve always wanted, but what things should you look for from new homes in Delaware?

While everybody has their own personal preferences when it comes to the tiny yet all-important details, there are some more overarching things to consider before making a final decision on your house and where you’ll live. As one of the premier home builders in Delaware, Insight Homes put together today’s post to highlight some of the important considerations you should weigh when looking at new homes in Delaware.

Naturally, the most important factor to consider when shopping for Delaware new homes is the quality of the house. Not all home builders in Delaware provide the same attention to quality and detail throughout the building process as Insight Homes does.

Luxury means every aspect of the house matters. Enhanced interior design elements and top-of-the-line kitchen appliances and finishes are staples within new homes in Delaware for Insight Homes.

Nestled on the Delaware portion of the Delmarva Peninsula just off the coast of the Indian River Bay, The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay resort community is one of the most gorgeous areas along the East Coast. The Peninsula is surrounded by natural beauty, defined by exceptional food, and separated by a distinct, luxurious culture. This resort community is surrounded by three bodies of water and offers some of the best beach destinations on the Atlantic Ocean.

Bethany Beach

Perfect for accessing the open water, Bethany Beach is easy to navigate from the Peninsula by boat. This beach is one of the local favorites thanks to its small-town feel and family-friendly appeal. There are no busy boardwalks or tourist-filled venues, but stands out for its unique charm and quiet nature — reminiscent of a forgotten time. There are fantastic views, excellent restaurants, and pristine beach property.

Dewey Beach

Uniquely located between Rehoboth Bay on the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Dewey Beach is only a mile long and two blocks wide. Water is only a short walk away because of its diminutive size, and is the perfect place to catch an unrivaled ocean sunrise. The atmosphere here is relaxed and laid back.

Rehoboth Beach

Rehoboth Beach routinely ranks nationally as one of the top beaches in the United States. Located in the Cape Region of the Atlantic coast, the town has often been referred to as the San Francisco of the East Coast due to its mild temperatures and access to the open ocean. Lined with charming cottages and boutiques, Rehoboth Beach is among the best fresh seafood destinations in the country.

Private Golf Community

You will not find new homes in Delaware with access to a better private golf course and golf community. The Peninsula includes an award-winning private golf course designed by the Golden Bear himself — Jack Nicklaus. This 7,200-yard, par 72 golf course weaves through all nine of the resort community’s neighborhoods and is both scenic and challenging. Managed by renowned Troon, Golf, Inc. even named it the Best Private Club. There is also a 2,500-square-foot athletic center and tennis and pickleball complex for those non-golfers in the community.

Calmwater Spa

No resort community would be complete without the luxury of a local spa. The Peninsula on the Indian River Bay offers the Calmwater Spa as a place to relax and rejuvenate. Whether you need a massage to relieve tension or a facial or body wax, you can choose from a host of pampering services.

The Lakeside Village Athletic Center at the Peninsula is home to several pools with year-round swimming if a trip to the private beach isn’t for you. There is a full-sized pool, an outdoor pool, many hot tubs and a wave pool complete with a water slide and sand beach for the grandkids when they visit.
