Westhampton: A Coveted Location
We’re all familiar with the popular real estate phrase, “Location, location, location!” While it’s true that, for some, a home's location can be an almost more important consideration than the home itself, the perfect location can mean different things to different buyers. For some, the ideal location is quaint and charming, close to the countryside and near to nature. For others, it can mean an area rich in cultural attractions and surrounded by important historic sites. For still others, it means proximity to major cities and the many conveniences they offer.
Get to Know the Area
Whatever your definition of the perfect location, Blenheim Homes’ community of Westhampton fits it. Located just outside the highly coveted and quaint city of Hockessin, DE, Westhampton is at once forested and private
Westhampton is conveniently located just 2 miles from the heart of quaint Hockessin, where residents can enjoy area shops, restaurants, and beautiful athletics facilities like the Hockessin Athletic Club.
For the outdoorsy types, there is not shortage of outdoor parks and facilities surrounding the community. Just 5 minutes away residents will find Delcastle Golf Club and Recreation Park, where you can play a round with friends, play a baseball game, reserve a court at the new tennis complex , or take the dog for a walk around their paved track. Also nearby are Carousel Park & Equestrian Center and White Clay Creek State Park.
Looking for a day trip or a night on the town? While Westhampton is perfectly situated to be both private and serene, it is still close to area attractions and the bustling cities like Philadelphia (50 minutes away) and downtown Wilmington (22 minutes away). Head to the Wilmington Riverfront where you can catch a baseball game, a movie or enjoy one of the dozens of restaurants that downtown Wilmington has to offer. Downtown Wilmington is also home to many area banks, offices and hospitals, making Westhampton a great location for individuals moving to the area for work. Likewise, the University of Delaware is just 20 minutes away.
Although these city attractions are just a short drive away, so are the enchanting countrysides of Pennsylvania, as well as some of Delaware’s most interesting historic sites. Pennsylvania’s beautiful destinations like Kennett Square and Chadds Ford are both only 20-25 minutes away, while Delaware’s own Brandywine Valley Scenic Byway is only 12 minutes away.
It’s easy to see why when you consider that a relaxing Saturday can include anything from a morning at the golf course to an afternoon sipping wine in a nearby vineyard to an evening taking in a Broadway show and a delicious dinner.
