Why Today’s Home Buyers Are Attracted to Planned Communities

Today’s home buyers want more than the American dream of a tidy house with a white picket fence. To accommodate their busy lifestyles—and help them get the most out of their rest and relaxation time—modern home buyers demand convenience, amenities, uniform infrastructure, and wide open spaces. It seems impossible to accommodate all of these must-haves in one location, but that’s exactly what builders of master planned communities in Delaware have accomplished.

The true spirit of community

People who purchase homes in planned communities tend to share the same basic values in life, including the firm commitment to true neighborliness. The days of borrowing a cup of sugar from a neighbor might be long past, but master planned communities are still close-knit places where neighbors look after each other.

The proximity to major traffic routes

A planned community is like its own little town. Residents have the tranquil experience of neighborhood living, but with easy access to major attractions nearby. Planned communities are typically located within minutes of commuter trains and major roadways, allowing residents to easily commute to work. Families can also take advantage of the attractions in the nearby major cities, like concerts, theaters, and museums.

The convenience of city living, with the perks of the suburbs

Today’s planned neighborhoods are true communities in every sense of the word, with neighborhood shops and other amenities within walking distance. Modern home buyers love the peace and relaxation of being away from the city, but they still want the amenities that city life brings. Planned communities are the perfect marriage of these two ideals.

Within their own neighborhoods, families can walk their kids to the primary care physician, enjoy a cup of coffee at the corner deli, and head out for an evening stroll along the nature trails. All of these perks—and more—can be found in the most highly coveted planned neighborhoods.

Stable home value

Another compelling reason behind the planned community trend is the effect it has on home values. No matter how carefully a homeowner maintains the property, that house’s value is affected by the neighbors’ homes. If a neighbor decides to subdivide a lot and put a mobile home on it, the value of the nearby houses will decline. This is a common problem that planned communities eliminate. Since the lots are developed according to a master plan, and the use of the lots is regulated, homeowners never have to worry about the value of their property decreasing because of a neighbor’s choices.

Why modern home buyers choose Montchanin Builders

Montchanin Builders is proud to have been the innovator behind some of the most highly coveted addresses in the Wilmington, Delaware area. Our masterfully planned communities include Darley Green, The Town of Whitehall, and The Overlook at Rockford Falls. Aside from our beautiful, move-in ready homes, home buyers choose Montchanin Builders because of the incredible amenities of our communities. From nature trails and water features to shopping and entertainment, our neighborhoods are walkable masterpieces. Homes in our communities in Delaware sell fast, so call us today at (302) 472-7212.

This year, Montchanin Builders received two Regal Awards presented by the Home Builders Association of Delaware — a member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). In addition, Montchanin was also the recipient of the Maryland Building Industry Association (MBIA) Maryland Award of Excellence for Outstanding Merchandising and a recipient of the Great American Living Awards (GALA) Award of Merit in Interior Design and Merchandising.
   

Salisbury Wins for Best Luxury Community Home

The Town of Whitehall, one of Montchanin Builders newest communities, has already garnered lots of positive press for its wonderful “hometown” ambience, lavish estate homes and walkability. Montchanin’s 3,800-plus square foot Salisbury (our flagship model) won the Regal Award in Celebration of Excellence for Best Luxury Community Home. The Salisbury features spacious interiors that were made for raising a family and entertaining with style. This exquisite 4-bedroom, 3 ½ bath home has a gourmet kitchen, two-car garage and a sweeping master bedroom suite with walk-in closet. Like other homes in this forward-thinking development, the Salisbury is in walking distance to shopping, restaurants, parks and other points of interest.

In regard to their efforts on the Salisbury model, Montchanin also received the Maryland Building Industry Association (MBIA) Maryland Award of Excellence for Outstanding Merchandising.

Carlyle Wins for Best Multi-Family Home

The Carlyle – a three-story townhome in Darley Green— was presented with the Home Builders Association of Delaware 2017 Regal Award for Best Multi-Family Home. This stylish residence has three bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and up to 2,100 square feet of finished living space. The family-centric model features an open floor plan with space expanding features like a recreation room and an optional loft.

Darley Green is Montchanin’s prized master-planned community, ideally situated just 10 minutes from downtown Wilmington in the highly desirable Brandywine School District. Darley Green’s new construction homes are within close proximity to varied dining and recreation options, and feature retail establishments, trails and a state-of-the-art library on site.

If you’d like a firsthand look at Montchanin’s Regal Award winners or want to learn more about our exciting Delaware communities, we invite you to contact our sales team today and arrange a private home tour!

Amenities Offered at Montchanin Builders’ Communities

As veteran homebuilders in Delaware, Montchanin Builders understand the value of stand-out amenities in their new home communities in Delaware. Whether it’s a state-of-the-art library, pedestrian-friendly paths to local shops and cafes, or access to award-winning schools, these types of inviting features are what make each development unique.

If you are house hunting in Delaware, here are a few compelling reasons to check out the master-planned communities of Darley Green and The Town of Whitehall. Both were designed with one thing in mind: to create a more enjoyable, more convenient and more family-centric place to live, work and play.

Located in excellent school districts

Most growing families prefer to reside in an area where their children will have a competitive advantage in education. Located in the heart of Claymont’s Renaissance District, just 10 minutes from downtown Wilmington, Darley Green offers access to some of the region’s best educational offerings, including the prestigious Archmere Academy, a private co-ed college prep school for grades 9-12. Renowned for its rigorous academics and thriving music program, Archmere is just across the street from the beautiful townhomes of Darley Green. There are other excellent schools in the local vicinity, including Wilmington Montessori, Claymont Elementary, Talley Middle School and Brandywine High School, giving parents numerous options for ensuring their children have a first-rate education. When science fair season rolls around, kids and their parents can avail themselves of the well-equipped Claymont Library, just steps from their door.

If being in a great school district plays a key role in your home purchase, consider The Town of Whitehall, located in the esteemed Appoquinimink School District. The district is home to Appoquinimink High and Middletown High, which recently garnered accolades as the best schools in Delaware, according to U.S. News & World Report. Also worth mentioning is that homes in good school districts historically hold their value, even in sluggish economies. Moreover, this highly walkable community will soon be home to its very own elementary school, which is slated to be completed in the upcoming year.

Nearby recreational amenities

The communities of Montchanin Builders also feature walking paths, nature trails and easy access to the kinds of amenities that transform a collection of homes into a tightly-knit neighborhood – a place where a stroll down the street will take you to school, to the library or to the playground. Mixed use buildings are incorporated throughout these new home developments, meaning residents can ride their bikes or walk to their neighborhood cafe or favorite shop.  Although you won’t find a communal swimming pool or fancy clubhouse in Darley Green or The Town of Whitehall, you also won’t be paying extra fees for their ongoing maintenance.

Instead, you will find nearby amenities that encourage a healthy, more active lifestyle. For instance, Darley Green is a short stroll from the beautiful Woodshaven Kruse Park, as well as several swim clubs and baseball fields. Kids will be raring to go outside and play!

For an amazing family outing, The Town of Whitehall boasts miles of gorgeous bike trails, with scenic loops along the C&D canal, and a longer path to Lums Pond State Park. Modeled after some of our nation’s most treasured “old fashioned” neighborhoods, Whitehall boasts communal gathering areas for seasonal events, and has on-site retail establishments and shops, making this an incredibly pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.

Why Buyers and Builders Have Fallen In Love With Open Floor Plans

living room kitchen designOpen floorplans have steadily risen in popularity since the 1990s to become the predominant trend in building. This type of layout features interconnected kitchens, living, and dining rooms that flow without obstruction from dividing walls or doorframes.

On the popular home renovation and interior design site Houzz, there are more than 600,000 photos of open-plan spaces and it’s the preferred choice of 60 percent of their readers.

There are many reasons to love the open floor plans featured in our Darley Green and Town of Whitehall new home communities in Delaware.

Enjoy a social lifestyle

  • Entertain guests. Have you ever noticed that many house parties tend to gravitate toward the kitchen? Guests like to spend time interacting with the host, who is busy preparing meals, while enjoying easy access to the refrigerator. Open floor plans enable hosts to remain part of the action, while giving guests freedom to roam.
  • Spend family time. Parents or grandparents of young children like that an open layout allows them to keep an eye on the little ones, no matter what they’re doing. You can cook or clean in the kitchen, while older children play, watch TV, or finish their homework in the family rooms. The close proximity of family members encourages open dialogue and a more communal way of living that suits the modern family.

Harmonize your space with nature

  • Maximize natural light. The greatest architects like Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn understand the transformative role that natural light can play in a home. In fact, Kahn once stated: “A room is not a room without natural light.” Without so many walls, sunlight can filter in and permeate the space to improve your mood.
  • Promote indoor-outdoor living. Some homes have main spaces that open up to outdoor kitchens or patios. The open concept plan gives you views of a landscaped backyard and connects the indoor/outdoor spaces.

 Make the most of your space

  • Rooms look larger. The vaulted, high ceilings common to open layouts gives you the feeling of a much larger space. Walls, doorways and halls can make a person feel claustrophobic, while robbing the family of valuable living space.
  • Expand your design choices. Have you ever been to a furniture store and fallen for a particular couch only to find you don’t have the wall space to cram it into your living room? An open layout gives you endless possibilities for structuring furnishings to meet your aesthetic preferences and needs. It’s easy to create a harmonious flow using common color themes from room to room when everything is connected.

Contact us for a tour of the open floor plans in Darley Green or the Town of Whitehall to see if it’s a fit for your family.

Darley Green features elegant condominiums and townhomes along with its own town center, and is just steps from the SEPTA R2 line and the Claymont commuter train.

Montchanin Homes Feature Latest Design Trends

living roomThough it is frequently overlooked as a small detail, the type and quality of interior trim can have a dramatic impact on the feel of your home – providing a sense of style and balance. Interior trim – including door casings, wainscoting, crown moldings, railings and baseboards– offers not only a finished look, it helps spotlight architectural points of interest. Homebuyers can think of trim as a character-adding component, or as a picture frame that emphasizes the splendor of what’s within.

In short, trim is a crucial design element that adds a sense of elegance and richness to a home. Whether you want to change the perception of a room’s dimensions and shape, create the illusion of high ceilings or strong lines, trim gives you options to customize your vision of the perfect “space.”

Importance of interior trim

Here at Montchanin Builders, our construction management team understands the aesthetic and functional role of design elements in our move-in ready and custom home communities. Most Wilmington residents are already familiar with the master-planned community of Darley Green, one of our flagship developments that invites homebuyers to accentuate their personal style with their choice of trim, cabinets, counters and flooring.

We are proud to continue a long-standing tradition of superior craftsmanship and interior design elements in the luxurious single family estate homes in The Town of WhiteHall – a walkable community located in Middletown, DE.  Modern floorplans promise a wide range of options when it comes to exterior and interior details – whether you prefer a classic look or the latest trends.

How trim can transform a room

Baseboards and paneling are so common that most homeowners don’t pay it much attention. Consider that, just as paint color can transform the ambiance and appearance of a room, so too can molding elements and trim.

Most interior trim is made of solid wood, polyurethane or medium density fiberboard – giving you plenty of options when it comes to color (whether you paint or use a varnish), style and budget.

What style speaks to your personal taste? From Victorian to modern, trim can be used for many purposes; below are just a few:

  • Raise the roof – Want to create the illusion of a higher ceiling? Simply paint the crown molding along the perimeter of the ceiling a slightly darker hue. This effect will draw the eye upwards. Alternatively, you can install the door trim right up to the ceiling.
  • Make a space appear larger – Cramped rooms may benefit from trim that is painted a slightly lighter shade than the walls. This visual effect makes it seem like the walls are opening, adding more space to a small room.
  • Create and Old World look – If you fancy a colonial or Victorian style, try pairing an eggshell-colored wall with contrasting trim that is painted a muted sage green, mustard yellow or gray-blue.
  • Make a space more interesting – interior trim including picture rails and plate rails is a powerful design tool. By adding a trim line below the ceiling and above a window, you’re adding interest and richness to a room.
