Some people might think that a beach home is out of their reach. There is a common misconception that if you want to live near the ocean, you either have to have a ton of money or compromise on the quality of your home. What if we told you that you could be close to the shore, yet away from the hustle and bustle in a gorgeous home, for an amazing value?



Millville By The Sea is conveniently located only 4 miles from the surf and sand of Bethany Beach in the city of Millville, DE, making it close enough to enjoy a day at the beach but also provides the perfect escape to avoid the crowds. With a variety of amenities for everyone to enjoy and coastal-style home designs that complement the surrounding areas, Millville By The Sea is the ultimate beach resort community in Delaware.

Christopher Companies now offers THREE different home series, the classic Cottage and Village series, and now the brand new Signature Series. These thoughtfully-crafted home designs are built with inimitable quality and are tailored to enhance the outdoor surroundings. 

The Cottages are the perfect home for seasonal or weekend vacationers! With 2 – 4 bedrooms, the Roxana and the Atlantic are the perfect cozy size for an getaway for two, as well as guests!
