McKee Builders' 55+ in Middletown, DE

McKee Builders’ popular 55+ Spring Arbor in Middletown, Delaware offers an amazing location, an active lifestyle with community amenities up and running, low taxes, beautiful single family ranch homes and carriage homes and a very successful SmartBuyer resale contingency program designed to help homebuyers sell their current home. All of this has led to brisk sales. With the community now selling a gorgeous new three bedroom home, continued brisk sales are expected.

Spring Arbor has just introduced the highly-anticipated Kipling floorplan which features the three bedrooms including a spacious master suite with abundant closet space and lavish bath, an open floorplan perfect for entertaining or family gatherings, kitchen, hall bathroom, dining room, Great Room, a walk up storage area, and a two car garage. Perhaps the most striking feature of this home is the beautiful front porch.

The Kipling includes many standard features such as crown modeling in the living room and dining room, tiled master shower with a tiled seat, walk up storage area that can be finished into a loft, a five foot crawl space with the option of a basement and much, much more. Pricing starts at just $279,900.

In all, Spring Arbor offers seven low-maintenance, single family homes with up to 2,000 square feet, convenient one floor living, two and three bedrooms, two baths, eat-in kitchen, family room, dining room, and one or two car garage. Pricing starts in the mid $200,000s. Seven designer-decorated single family and carriage home models are open for touring.

The community currently has several prime homesites that back up to open space, but these are selling quickly. Homebuyers are advised to visit soon for the best selection of homesites.

Spring Arbor also offers three carriage homes which feature open floorplans, single floor living, two bedrooms, two full baths, kitchen, dining room, great room, front porch, and one and two car garages with pricing starting in the lower $200,000s.

One of the reasons for Spring Arbor’s success can be credited to its SmartBuyer resale contingency program which has helped many of its new residents sell their current home. Homebuyers can learn more about this beneficial program at a SmartBuyer seminar on June 15th at 10:00 a.m., which will be held at the award-winning Spring Arbor clubhouse (1 Spring Arbor Lane, Middletown, Delaware 19709). Seating is limited so please RSVP to 302-376-6677.

A large benefit of buying a home from McKee Builders in Delaware is the low taxes including extremely low property taxes, no state sales tax, no state tax on social security and reduced taxes on pension and retirement earnings. This is a huge difference from surrounding states.

Spring Arbor was awarded “Best 55+ Community of the Year” last year by the Home Builders Association of Delaware. It is easy to see why. Unlike other 55+ communities, Spring Arbor’s community amenities are already up and running. The center of the active lifestyle found here is the luxurious clubhouse which features a heated outdoor pool and a large patio area, picnic pavilion, Great Room, crafts room, billiards and two card rooms, library and fitness center. Surrounding the clubhouse are bocce courts, putting green and a tot lot. A long list of community events, trips and clubs including aerobics, water exercise, bocce, horseshoes, canasta, Sit-N-Stitch and more round out the active lifestyle. A full listing of monthly activities can be found at Homebuyers will be pleased to know that the community is also pet-friendly with a doggy park to be built in the future.

Spring Arbor is also ideally located providing homeowners easy access to just about everything. The community is close to the cultural areas of Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley as well as the University of Delaware with its collegiate sports. The community is also close to beaches, wildlife areas, fishing and boating lakes and bays, golf courses, and the historic towns of Odessa and Middletown; as well as shopping, restaurants, medical centers, and major roads including Route I-95, providing easy access to the Northeast Corridor. The community is conveniently located just 22 miles from the Delaware Memorial Bridge, great for homeowners with family in New Jersey or the Philadelphia area.

An added plus is that the community offers the convenience of having Kohl's, the largest Super Wal-Mart on the East Coast, Happy Harry's and Walgreens stores; as well as the Christiana Health Care facility within walking distance. There is also a bus route that picks up and drops off passengers at the community entrance.

And because the outdoor maintenance is taken care of, homeowners have more time to take advantage of all the area and the community offers.
