Christopher Companies was recently featured in the August 2014 edition of Delaware’s Morning Star Business Report as the feature cover story! The article, “Christopher Companies captures the essence of Delmarva in Sussex County communities,” details Christopher Companies’ home construction projects in various Sussex County communities, including Baywood Greens, Laguna Bay, Millville by the Sea and Wharton’s Bluff. You can learn more about our beach homes here, and be sure to read the full Morning Star article! An excerpt from the article is below. Thank you, Morning Star!

Beyond the basics of quality construction, energy efficiency, environmental sustainability and sufficient square footage, what do you look for in a new home? Do you want to live in a community with something special to offer? Do you want amenities such as a pool, golf course or community center? Do you want a balcony with a water view where you can watch the sun rise or set? Are you a boater in need of a boat slip as well as a garage? 
For features such as these, in addition to unique designs and architectural details you won’t find in a typical subdivision-type home, check out the five Sussex County communities currently under construction by the Christopher Companies: Wharton’s Bluff in Millsboro, Millville by the Sea, Baywood Greens in Long Neck, Laguna Bay on Fenwick Island and the Cove at Sandy Landing near Dagsboro.
Craig Havenner, company president, speaks with obvious pride of the company’s 40-year history as builder and developer in the Virginia and Washington, D.C., metropolitan areas where it has fulfilled the dreams of more than 4,400 satisfied homebuyers. Since 2009, Christopher Companies also has been developing properties in Sussex County.
“We were presented with the opportunity to work with an existing investor-customer to assist in repositioning and rejuvenating his existing community. This allowed us to enter the Sussex County market in the early stages of a master planned community that will surely evolve into one of Sussex County’s finest,” Havenner said. Enticed by visits and vacations to the area, as well as friends who lived there, company principals had long been interested in participating in the Delaware housing market. They soon identified other opportunities in the Sussex County area.
“We look for communities with some special allure, a natural feature of some kind, to distinguish that community from the others,” Havenner said.
