Bayberry Green

Bayberry... a community greener by design

Bayberry by Blenheim Homes is something completely new in Delaware development - an environmentally-sound, sustainable community designed to reduce dependence on automobiles. Bayberry's vision is a reincarnation of the traditional American small town - a place where residents can walk along tree-lined boulevards to neighborhood schools and shopping - a community infused with generous open spaces, recreational parks and neighborhood greens - a community in harmony with its environment.

Bayberry's comprehensive landscape planning is designed to preserve hundreds of acres of open space. Blenheim expects to plant tens of thousands of trees and shrubs, create over 70 acres of reforested land and vast open spaces interlaced with miles of biking and hiking trails - and a 70-acre park boasting a large man made lake.

Bayberry's landscape will include:

  • 10 ½ acre lake
  • 8 neighborhood greens
  • 4 playgrounds
  • 70 acre Central Park including a 13 acre lake
  • The majority of homes will either back to open space or face onto neighborhood greens
  • Over 40,000 shrubs
  • Over 25,000 trees
  • Over 70 acres of reforested land
  • Preservation of major streams and tributaries

At Blenheim Homes, we are committed to building homes as good for the environment as they are for our homeowners. Every single family home and estate home built here in Bayberry will incorporate the latest in energy efficiency for heating and cooling, insulation, appliances, and water fixtures to help ensure reduced impact on the environment and reduced cost of operation for their owners.
