Lewes, Delaware


single-family home community with wooded background. One realtor put it, 'one of a kind' in Sussex County.

Properties are large enough to provide privacy and yet the community is small enough to offer the neighborly feel of a small community.


  • Sussex County, Delaware, has the lowest property taxes of all the most desirable States! The average property tax for these spacious homes is only about $1,200 a year - often $700/yr or less for seniors!! (plus a county sewer fee).

  • 0% sales tax - Tanger Outlet malls, restaurants, and other services.
  • Not considered to be in flood zone, and having fire hydrants in the community, the insurance rates are low. The FEMA map for zip code 19958 is available online at
  • Low Home Owners Association Fee - Currently $460/yr (less than $40/month). BRW HOA has been self-governing since April 2013 to save property management fees in an effort to build up a healthy Capital Reserve fund, mandated by DE State Laws to fund maintenance of its common areas.
  • Power is supplied by Delaware CoOp, with perhaps the lowest electric rates in the NorthEast.


  • Two public golf courses within 3 miles.
  • Just a little drive from Rehoboth Beach with its famous boardwalk, Dewey Beach, and Lewes beach; the huge Cape Henlopen State Park and national seashore recreation areas; free State boat ramps; fishing sites; historic downtown Lewes; the auto/passenger Ferry Terminal to Cape May, New Jersey.
  • Many upscale supermarkets and Tanger Outlet Mall

BRW has a mix of younger families and retired people enjoying the relaxed lifestyle in the First State. Great neighbors. Very Quiet, too! Come check out our community at dusk as well as during the day. If you see a homeowner walking a dog, stop and say, 'Hi.' They will most likely be willing to talk about their proud community.

​Paved, attractively curved streets with sidewalks, drainage system and street-lighting.

​Each homeowner owns the property - No Land Lease
