This beautiful age-restricted community in Central Delaware features low-maintenance, energy-efficient single-family homes that will appeal to those aged 55 or better. While the community is still being developed, residents can get together at the community's temporary recreation center.

Roesville is conveniently located near the capital city of Dover, and its central location puts it within equal distance from the Bay Bridge and Rehoboth Beach. The many attractions within the surrounding areas include challenging golf courses, beautiful public parks, shopping centers and fine restaurants.

The game room is complete with a billiards table for those looking for some friendly competition with neighbors. This charming gathering place also has a small exercise room that lets homeowners work out without having to travel far or pay for a pricey gym membership.

    You'll find the homes are a great value here. Prices are reasonable, taxes are really low and even the monthly HOA fees are less than you'd expect. I am a penny pincher but still want good quality. This community fits the bill for me.
