Welcome to Middletown The Ponds at Bayberry is a charming new home community for residents 55 and older. Situated off of Boyds Corner Rd, The Ponds is just North and East of Middletown, one of Delaware’s top locations. With a population of 21,250, Middletown is both small enough to offer communal intimacy and large enough to offer community amenities. But this is just one of the many reasons that Middletown is ranked as one of the best places to live in Delaware and why we at Blenheim Homes chose this destination to build our retirement community. The town itself is one of Delaware’s safest cities in terms of crime rate, which reflects the settled nature of its occupants. In fact, 79% of Middletown’s residents own their own homes. Perhaps this plays into why Middletown’s crime rate is the lowest in the state and its total crime rate is tied for the lowest. Middletown is home to many families, young professionals, and retirees, giving the town a harmonious and varied vibrancy.
