The Estuary is a residential planned community of 683 single-family homes, located on 465 acres between Fenwick Island and Bethany Beach in Sussex County, Delaware. The master plan for this amenity-filled community is designed to take advantage of several environmental features of the site, including the Assawoman Bay Wildlife Refuge, and several expansive areas of forestland. The single-family homes have been designed into a series of discrete neighborhoods within the community. Each home has been designed to ensure maximum luxury and livability separated by attractive environmental features and forested open space. The neighborhoods are linked by 17 miles of trails that provide scenic circulation throughout the community.
Amenities include entry lake with fountains, interconnecting nature trails, a state-of-the-art clubhouse with a yoga studio and gym, an arts & crafts room and a game room with billiards and shuffleboard, outdoor grille with a bar and entertainment area, outdoor pool with lap lanes and in-water sundeck, bocce ball, putting green, pickleball, tennis courts, ponds for fishing and kayaking, dog park, man-made beach with outdoor firepit, and a community shuttle to downtown Bethany.
