What does a 55+ homebuyer want in a new single-family home? McKee Builders’ 55+ Spring Arbor, located in Middletown, Delaware, asked and listened and found some great answers.

Based on their suggestions, McKee Builders’ has now introduced five new single-family floorplans at Spring Arbor. The new homes feature front porches, detailed craftsman-style exteriors, two car garages, open floorplans, two to four bedrooms including a spacious master suite with tray ceiling, more and larger closets and additional storage space, larger, tiled bathrooms with a private toilet; nine foot ceilings throughout (except for vaulted ceilings), a first floor laundry, exceptionally well-designed kitchens with large center islands and eat-in area, an elegant entrance foyer with hardwood floors and wainscoting and crown molding and much more. All this for pricing starting in the high 200,000s. The models for these homes are now under construction and a muddy shoe tour will take place after Labor Day.
