This Community was completed in 2020. We thoroughly enjoyed the process of working in this community and with our homeowners. While we were sad to see this project come to a close we are excited about the other communities in Delaware where we build and are looking forward to our upcoming projects.
For most people, retirement is the time to jump off the fast track and enjoy a more relaxed, stress-free lifestyle. This sometimes involves relocating to a quieter, more peaceful environment. Lots of folks in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region are exploring, or are already enjoying, the benefits of living in 55-and-over communities in Delaware. The First State has so much to offer to retirees and anyone else in search of a refreshing change of pace.
Fieldstone Village: The Best Choice in Delaware 55-Plus Communities
Are you in search of a beautiful, peaceful 55-and-over community where you can spend your retirement years in style and comfort? Have you heard lots of great things about living in 55-and-older communities in Delaware from friends or family members who have already made the move to the First State?
Fieldstone Village in Dover, Delaware, is a 55-plus community featuring quaint homes in proximity to all your shopping needs. You will be able to enjoy the tranquil, laid-back lifestyle you have always dreamed of while still having easy access to all the modern amenities that are part of living in the twenty-first century. With homes averaging nearly 1,500 square feet of living space in each of the floorplans, you’re sure to find a home that suits your needs.
A 55-Plus Community Designed for Active Adults
Fieldstone Village is a shining example of the active adult communities in Delaware that are designed to meet the needs of today’s younger retirees. Active adult communities typically feature homes ranging from 1,300-2000 square feet — large enough to provide sufficient living space yet small enough to make getting around so much easier. The homes are usually detached single-family units with amenities such as laundry facilities and a master bedroom located on the first floor to minimize the need to constantly navigate stairs. Fieldstone Village offers its residents an outdoor pavilion with picnic tables and charcoal grills. There are also horseshoe pits and bocce ball courts to keep your guests entertained.
What Makes Delaware so Appealing to the 55-and-Older Community?
For those looking for a top-rated place to retire, Delaware has become a favorite choice for active 55-plus retirees in the Mid-Atlantic region. Part of Delaware’s appeal is its centralized location on the Eastern Shore, allowing retirees to be within driving distance of loved ones. You can also take a day trip to major cities such as Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia or New York City or visit the numerous attractions up and down the East Coast.
Of course, you can enjoy fun-filled experiences without having to cross the Delaware state line. You will find many beautiful ocean resort towns such as Bethany Beach and Rehoboth Beach, known for their stunning beaches and breathtaking scenery. You will also have ample opportunities for golfing, fishing or taking in Delaware’s many museums and other historical venues.
While active adults are drawn to Delaware for many reasons, the state’s favorable tax laws are often a large part of the decision to relocate to the First State. In addition to not having statewide or countywide sales taxes, Delaware offers additional tax benefits including:
- Extremely low real estate property taxes compared to neighboring states
- No personal property taxes
- No inheritance taxes for most residents
- No state taxes on social security benefits
- Depending on a resident’s age, he or she may also qualify for favorable limits on pension benefit taxes.
Enjoy the Advantages of Living in a Traditional Stick-Built Home
The Fieldstone Village active adult community consists of homes featuring a traditional stick-built construction process. Stick-built homes are constructed on the site, as opposed to modular homes, where the individual components are manufactured in a factory environment and then transported to the lot for final assembly.
With the stick-built home, the frame, trusses, roof and other components are constructed on a piece-by-piece basis in a predetermined sequence using specialized labor for each process. Local labor and materials are typically used in each project phase.
While modular home construction is gaining in popularity, many home builders, contractors, construction professionals and property owners still prefer stick-built structures – approximately 90 percent of all new homes in the U.S. are built via this time-tested method. If you take a drive through eastern Maryland or Delaware, you will find plenty of examples of stick-built homes ranging from brand-new structures to ones that are 100 years old or more.
What Are the Benefits of Stick-Built Homes?
Whether you are planning to build a home in a 55-plus community or at a site of your choosing, stick-built homes offer a number of important benefits. Because the entire construction process takes place on-site, builders have more control over each step of the process. Consequently, builders have greater flexibility to make on-site adjustments as needed.
And many homeowners simply feel more confident about living in a stick-built home, knowing that they are benefitting from a tried-and-true construction process that has been around for so long. Architects, contractors, carpenters and other construction professionals have a thorough understanding of the technique and extensive experience in implementing it.
