Montchanin Selected As Builder For Whitehall Neighborhood

cambridge1The Town of Whitehall is a brand new master-planned community north of Middletown on the south bank of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

The parcel of land was first purchased in 1984 by The Welfare Foundation as a legacy project that would greatly enhance the lives of Delaware residents. The first homes are now available – and Montchanin is happy to be selected as one of a handful of builders to be involved in this exciting project!

The vision

Like the best modern communities, Whitehall will be a walkable town with mixed-use spaces, residential units down tree-lined streets, retail shops, communal grounds, exclusive events, and preserved nature. The idea is that residents can live, work, and play without ever needing a car. It’ll be an old-fashioned sort of community where the neighbors all know each other and kids play games of hop-scotch down the sidewalks.

Neighborhood amenities

Benefits of living in the town of Whitehall include:

  • Bike trails: Active residents can take advantage of numerous bike trails just outside their doorstep. Bike an 8-mile loop from Lorewood Grove Road, across Scott’s Run, and back again. Or take a 21-mile trek along the canal to beautiful Chesapeake City, Maryland. Another option is a 23-mile odyssey to Lums Pond State Back.
  • Community events: Mapleton Square will be the epicenter of community traditions, including concerts, marshmallow roasting, picnics, Frisbee, sing-a-long musicals, and special family-friendly holiday celebrations.
  • Commercial spaces: Get to supermarkets, parks, cafes, hair salons, banks, clothing stores, and other businesses – all just a five-minute walk from your front door.
  • Beautiful surroundings: Natural spaces will be preserved amid eclectic architecture, characteristic of old town Delaware.
