Patricia explains, "We really did our home- work. For a year and a half we came to Lewes and Rehoboth Beach on weekends searching for our 'dream' home in an ideal location. "We looked at models in all of the nice com- munities. We visited builders, shops and stores, even the post office, always asking their opinions on the most reliable builders and the most desirable locations. "While exploring all the nooks and crannies, we found Plantations.-In Plantations, we found the exact house, with separate guest quarters, we wanted. Now, we say that we foundthe right area, the right community, the right builder -- Country Life Homes -- and the right home. "We loved Plantations and our new home so much, we made the decision to retire a year earlier than we had planned -- just to get this completely new-type of design in a house. "Here, everyone is so nice and so friendly. When you visit Plantations, you'll be able to see for yourself just what we're talking about:" Prices start at $113,500.
