The White Pine Cove development mission was and is to keep a safe, quiet, controlled-growth neighborhood, free from heavy traffic while maintaining favorable property values for the area. White Pine Cove was not developed to maximize profits; it was designed for quality of life.
Across the street from the entrance to White Pine Cove (on Hudson Road) is the Eagle Crest Air Strip. Only used by the property owners of Eagle Crest who are recreational pilots, its grass runway angle is such that it is very rare to hear any take offs or landings. Most of homes at Eagle Crest are larger homes each with private hangers. On the Route 1 side of the air strip at Eagle Crest is a playing field, mostly used for children's soccer leagues. The soccer field is located about a mile away from White Pine Cove and the entrance is at Eagle Crest Road and Route 1.
Location is everything and while White Pine Cove is in a rural setting near the Lewes/Milton border, it is less than a mile off Route 1 and is very close to the beaches and tax-free shopping. Access is off Hudson or Eagle Crest Roads and is just north of where our weekend beach traffic may start to back up in-season. Beebe Medical Center is less than 10 minutes away, as well as Cape Henlopen State Park, a perfect place for walks, biking or to drive your surf-fishing SUV right onto the beach. Lewes Beach, downtown Lewes, Lowes, Home Depot, and all of the Rehoboth shopping outlets, fishing, marinas and boat ramps are less than two miles away. The local school systems are also very good.
All White Pine Cove lots are large and have been kept wooded so that each home owner can make decisions on the amount of privacy they desire. There are some big trees but the lots will be easy to clear as most of the tree growth has been stunted from the density. When your home is complete each lot will have a mature look rather than the typical subdivision which has been totally cleared and has no character.
Comcast cable has been installed as well as electric and phone service. Each lot will also have private well and septic, so no water or sewer bills. You may use any contractor to build our new home at White Pine Cove. However, if you are new to the area, it would be our pleasure to recommend reliable builders and facilitate an introduction for you.
