Whispering Woods, a 55-plus lifestyle community by McKee Builders, officially opened its sales office in Middletown.

The community will offer resort-style living in New Castle County, golf, Wilmington attractions and Brandywine Valley culture.

“Whispering Woods is our third 55-plus lifestyle community in Middletown,” said Frank McKee, Jr., of McKee Builders. “The others, Springmill and Spring Arbor, have been very successful communities and well received by our buyers. In fact, Spring Arbor was named the ‘Best 55-plus Community of the Year’ by the Home Builders Association of Delaware. That led us to explore other opportunities in Middletown, and we’re excited to be able to offer another spectacular 55-plus lifestyle community in this great location. With no sales tax, no tax on Social Security and low property taxes, Delaware is a great place to retire.”

Buyers may choose from single-family ranch designs, twins and carriage homes. Single-family ranch homes range from 1,558 to 2,278 square feet. Twins range from 1,528 to 1,801 square feet; and Carriage homes range from 1,464 to 1,735 square feet. Designs feature two bedrooms and two bathrooms and single-level living, with options for a second story loft.

The center of the community will have a 3,000-square foot clubhouse, with a pool and fitness center. Residents will be able to enjoy activities and events.

When completed, there will be 178 homes. Homes start at $254,900. Whispering Woods is located at 506 Boyd’s Corner Road, Middletown. Sales office hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, except for Wednesdays, when the office is closed.
