About Bay Ridge Woods (BRW)

Welcome to the Bay Ridge Woods (BRW) Community located in LewesDelaware.

This single-family home community with wooded background is, as 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. View the streetscape of Bay Ridge Woods on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWVIxIPHJKw  - taken in Feb. 2013, hence the bare trees.

Most homes have been built in 2003-2005. Each homeowner owns the property and there is no land-lease. There have only been a few resales and only a couple of lots are yet to be developed. Some houses have one or more bedroom(s) and bathroom(s) on the ground floor.

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.

  • BRW homes are within 3 miles of at least two public golf courses.
  • 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 - including a Harris Teeter, a Safeway, a Super Fresh, 2 Super Gs and 3 Food Lions, all within 7 miles.
  • Beebe hospital and other medical services. 
  • Great School District - Cape Henlopen.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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, drainage system and street-lighting.
  • Underground power and underground Verizon FIOS service for the fastest Internet, best phone/TV service.
  • City water; central County sewage system is now connected to most homes.
  • Most of the BRW homes have full basements! 
  • Some of the homes have views of an attractive pond.
  • Many homeowners look after each other's home when away.
  • Our community entrance is located well away from major traffic area - coming in/out during the rush hour or even in the summer is a breeze.
In short, we live leisurely where other people would like to vacation, at an affordable price. For more information, e-mail us at: bayridgewoods@gmail.com
