32357 Back Nine Way #3743 long neck, DE, 19966View Listing
Long Neck’s central position on the peninsula makes it wonderful home base for exploration of the absolutely stunning coastal Delaware. The small town is located less than 20 minutes east of Millsboro, and the fantastic coastal resort towns of Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach are all a short hop away.
Roads have improved since the town was first founded, but Long Neck is still found off the major highways, creating a welcome isolation. It’s this relatively isolated position that has contributed to it consistently ranking as a top retirement destination, while a low cost of living makes it incredibly affordable.
The vast majority of the Long Neck real estate market is made up of single-family homes, especially in the areas of the community closest to the water. These are easily the most desirable properties available anywhere in the area, and the best ones rarely come on the market. The jagged coastline of Long Neck has created unique waterfront areas, so many of these coastal homes enjoy near panoramic views of the bay’s waters.
Long Neck is almost completely residential, the gently winding streets in front of many homes are lined with towering trees. They create a welcome amount of shade for the ample backyards of these homes, while also providing a welcome degree of privacy.
Another highly sought after area and the part of town that has seen the most recent development, is the Baywood development. These absolutely stunning homes can be found along the greens and fairways of the Baywood Greens Golf Course on your way into town.
As we pointed out, the community of Long Neck is almost entirely residential. Most residents find it easier to make the short trip to nearby Millsboro for most big-ticket items. The small town does feature a small business area along the John J. Williams Highway. Here, you’ll find a Walgreens and Giant Food, along with a collections of restaurants and other small retailers.
The main attraction of Long Neck is clearly the coastal area and the water itself. The small community features numerous small inlets, canals, streams and ponds just waiting to be explored. Plus, the incredible resort towns, beaches and nature preserves found on Delaware’s barrier islands can all be easily accessed within less than a half hour’s drive.
For recreation within the community, there is of course Baywood Greens Golf Course for a near-perfect 18 holes. Near the center of town, the Pot-Nets Bayside Fitness Track provides a beautiful paved walkway that winds through a series of ponds, always stocked with fish.
