Tower Hill

Lewes, DE
Homes from the upper $600K

Tower Hill is the latest addition to Lewes, Delaware, a quaint seaside town situated at the mouth of the Delaware Bay. Although Lewes has roots going back to 1631, the newly constructed homes at Tower Hill will surely attract a new generation of townsfolk to the coastal community.

Developed by Carl M. Freeman Companies and built by K. Hovnanian Homes, Tower Hill consists of 292 single family homes, with lots ranging from 1/5 to ¼ acre and homes consisting of two to four bedrooms. Inside, 10-foot ceilings create open living areas, while some floor plans offer the option of screened patios and separate entertainment rooms. But the heart of the homes at Tower Hill are the gourmet kitchens, with granite countertops, stainless steel GE appliances, and a large island with pull up seating.

Of course, Tower Hill includes a community pool, tennis courts, putting green and a 6,000 square foot clubhouse, among other outdoor facilities that you’ve come to expect. But perhaps the biggest draw to Tower Hill is the surrounding community and the impressive selection of beaches at your doorstep.

Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, and Bethany Beach draw visitors from across the Mid-Atlantic region, and Tower Hill is literally minutes away from all three. To avoid tourists, head to the lesser-known Lewes Beach, a true locals spot. When you tire of the sun and sand, enjoy the town of Lewes, which has a busy historic district with boutique shopping, fine dining, art galleries and cafes. You can also explore the delicate ecosystem surrounding Tower Hill by visiting the nearby Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Redden State Forest, or Cape Henlopen State Park.

The Delmarva Peninsula is known for its relaxed pace of life, unique ecosystems, and pleasant towns. Request more information to be part of it all at Tower Hill.
