Henlopen Acres is one of the smallest and only purely residential town in the State of Delaware comprised of 219 parcels covering 123 acres. The community hugs the Rehoboth / Lewes Canal and is nestled among beautiful mature trees. It is one of the most unique and desirable oceanfront communities on the Delaware Coast. Conveniently located north of Rehoboth Beach and a neighbor to North Shores, this vacation and year round community offers a tasteful mix of architecturally historical homes and new construction in a quaint and forested setting.
Developed by W.S. Corkran in the 1930s, it was designed as a "residential development where quiet-loving, cultured people may live in a country seaside community amid conditions which make for health, comfort and refined pleasure."
This design has been successful in creating some of the most valuable real estate in Delaware. Community amenities include a private beach, marina, the Henlopen Acres Beach Club and the Rehoboth Beach Art League. Bryce currently resides here and is always an excellent source for information and property values. Prices range from $1.5M to $5M or more with few residential building lots still available! Henlopen Acres boasts approximately 201 single family homes.
