About BRW

Welcome to the Bay Ridge Woods (BRW) Community located in Lewes'slower lower Delaware.'

Though small (less than 50 houses), this single-family home community with large wooded lots (averaging 1 acre, sometimes more) is considered as one of Sussex County's most beautiful communities. View the streetscape of BRW on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWVIxIPHJKw  - taken in Feb. 2013, hence the bare trees.

Most homes have been built in 2003-2005; there have only been a few resales and only a couple of lots are yet to be developed. One large (2 acre) irregular-shaped wooded lot is for sale at $95,000.

BRW has a mix of younger families and retired people enjoying the relaxed lifestyle in the First State. Great neighbors.  Very Quiet, too! 

IDEAL LOCATION:
  • BRW homes are within 3 miles of at least two golf clubs.
  • Just a little drive from famous Rehoboth, Dewey, and Lewes beaches; the huge Cape Henlopen State Park; free State boat ramps; historic downtown Lewes; the Ferry-terminal to New Jersey.
  • Many upscale supermarkets.
  • Beebe hospital and many other medical services. 
  • Great School District.
AFFORDABLE LIVING: 
  • Sussex County, Delaware, has the lowest property taxes of all the most desirable States! The average property tax for these large homes is only about $1,200 a year; and often $700/yr or less for seniors!! (plus a county sewer fee).
  • 0% sales tax-free - 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.
  • Low Home Owners Association Fee - Currently $460/yr (less than $40/month).
  • Power is supplied by Delaware CoOp, with perhaps the lowest electric rates in the NorthEast.
Here are some of many other ADVANTAGES of Bay Ridge Woods (BRW):
  • The value of properties not located in a flood zone should appreciate considerably as the real estate market factors the cost of flood insurance into the buying decision and developers cope with scarce land that does not require flood insurance.  The FEMA map for zip code 19958 is available online at sussexcountyde.gov/firm

  • Paved and attractively curved streets with sidewalks and street-lighting.
  • Underground power and underground Verizon FIOS service for the fastest Internet, best phone/TV service.
  • City water, a recently-completed central County sewage system.
  • Most of the BRW homes have full basements, unusual in lower Delaware!
  • Some of the homes have views of an attractive pond.
In short, we live where other people vacation, at an affordable price. For more information, e-mail us at: bayridgewoods@gmail.com
