Lennar's Plantation Lakes Provides Affordable Option for Second Home

Computer Hardware


Located just minutes from Delaware’s pristine Delmarva beaches, Lennar’s Plantation Lakes in Millsboro is the perfect community for Mid-Atlantic city dwellers looking for a tranquil retreat.  Just a two and a half hour drive from Baltimore, residents who purchase a Plantation Lakes property as a second home can leave work on a Friday afternoon and be on the back patio enjoying golf course vistas before dinnertime.  All new homebuyers at Plantation Lakes will love the attainable luxury of a family-friendly community with such reasonable prices and variety of home plans.

Plantation Lakes provides an affordable coastal lifestyle with townhomes as low as the $100s and single-family homes from the $210s.  Convenience, comfort and peace of mind come standard at Plantation Lakes, and the unbeatable prices put the dream of finally having that second-home getaway within reach.

Lennar has recently broken ground on townhomes in Plantation Lakes and is set to begin construction on a state-of-the-art pool and clubhouse in September with townhomes ready for move-in as early as November.  The construction of single-family homes began in April and several are ready for immediate occupancy.

Future vacationers can easily find a floor plan that meets their needs with the wide variety of single-family and townhome plans. 

Single-family home styles boast 2,000 to 2,500 square feet of living space, three to four bedrooms, two or two and a half baths and a two- or three-car garage. 

“The basement in our Grafton model is so spacious you could actually fit a bowling lane inside!” said Lennar Maryland Division President John R. White.  “In this area, just having a basement and all the extra space it provides is a unique indulgence. The availability of home plans with such expansive, flexible space makes Plantation Lakes a special community and is one of the many things that set Lennar apart.”

Both townhome collections in Plantation Lakes feature three-story home plans.  The Bellhaven collection offers two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in just over 1,200 square feet of living space with a one-car garage while the Kentwell collection features three bedrooms and two and two half bathrooms in more than 2,100 square feet with a two-car garage.

In addition to a variety of plans suitable for anyone’s dreams for a second home, Plantation Lakes offers Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® program, in which certain luxury features come standard, rather than as an add-ons costing homebuyers thousands extra.  Standard features in the community’s townhomes include granite, designer staggered cabinetry and attached one- and two- car garages.  For single-family homes in Plantation Lakes, standard features include granite and GE CleanSteel™ appliances.

In Lennar’s Plantation Lakes, Everything’s Included® also includes Schlage’s LiNK® Home Automation System, offering top-of-the-line technology that gives homeowners the ability to control elements of their home from a remote computer, tablet or smartphone.  With this cutting-edge technology, homeowners will have the ability to enable doors to be unlocked, see who has accessed their LiNK deadbolt locks, turn lights on and off, control the thermostat and view a live video feed of the home’s interior with the wireless camera that is included in the package. 

“Especially with a vacation home, having the ability to remotely control home functions can provide infinite piece of mind,” White continued.  “When you are just an hour outside of Baltimore after a lovely weekend and think, ‘did I remember to turn off the lights in the kitchen,’ or ‘did I remember to turn the thermostat off,’ you can just check it on your smartphone and not have to consider driving back.”

Making Lennar’s newest Delaware community even more affordable, Plantation Lakes qualifies for 100 percent USDA financing through a government-insured loan program that encourages home ownership in predominantly rural areas.  And, homebuyers can also take advantage of the simplicity of working with UAMC, Lennar’s affiliate mortgage company.

Anyone interested in learning more about Lennar’s Plantation Lakes can visit the community’s Welcome Home Center, located at 27539 Belmont Blvd., just off Millsboro Highway.  Lennar’s new home consultants are always available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday or on Monday by appointment.  For anyone who is unable to visit Plantation Lakes, just go to to chat live with an Internet new home consultant, who can answer any questions potential homebuyers may have about the community and surrounding area.  For more information, call 1-888-214-2073 or visit
