Developed by Schell Brothers, Independence is a new age-restricted community in Delaware’s beautiful Millsboro area. This prime location is close to the coast, which boasts several popular resort beaches. The community itself also contains numerous amenities, as well as diverse homes in a wide range of sizes and styles.

Location

Schell Brothers began construction of the Independence community in 2007 on a 330-acre stretch of land in Millsboro, Delaware. This prime location is popular with active adults, especially because it is so close to several coastal areas.

From Independence, it is only a short drive to resort towns like Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Lewes, Bethany Beach, and Fenwick Island. Millsboro itself also contains many desirable touches such as state parks, golf courses, shopping centers, and restaurants. For day trips or weekend getaways, a resident need only drive two hours to reach famous destinations like Philadelphia, Baltimore, or Washington D.C.

Residences

Upon completion, the Independence community is expected to have 450 single-family homes. These thoughtfully-designed residences will be quite diverse with plans that feature anywhere from one to five bedrooms and range in size from 1,159 to 4,752 square feet.

There are both single- and two-story homes available, and further options let homebuyers partially customize their new construction homes. While the options vary from one floor plan to the next, some of the popular choices include bay windows, finished or unfinished basements, extended owner’s suites, and decks or screened porches.

Amenities

Though the newly built homes are certainly an important benefit of the community, Independence also entices potential homebuyers with many resort-style amenities and exciting social clubs. The 24,000 square-foot, award-winning clubhouse—known as Independence Hall—is clearly the center of activity within the community. It houses computer and hobby rooms, a ballroom, a conference room, a spacious lounge, and a fully-equipped fitness center.

The amenities continue outdoors with a swimming pool, tennis and volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, a putting green, and a picnic barbecue area.

Residents at Independence in Millsboro enjoy low-maintenance living in quality-built homes that are 20 to 30 percent more energy efficient than standard homes.
