BEAR, Del., March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — CalAtlantic Homes, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, is now selling Summit Bridge Estates, the first phase of a new master-planned community in Bear, Del., offering a quiet lifestyle at the center of acres of preservation land, yet still only minutes from award-winning shopping, dining, schools and employment. Home shoppers are invited to tour Summit Bridge Estates this weekend.

«Summit Bridge Estates brings five beautiful, brand new single-family floor plans to the Tri-State area, in a location where high-quality new homes are in great demand,» said Chris Gillen, Philadelphia Division President for CalAtlantic Homes. «These are the only new homes for sale north of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal, offering children the opportunity to attend the Appoquinimink School District and significantly shortening commuter drive times to Wilmington and Philadelphia – yet in a setting that feels far removed from the city.»

Summit Bridge Estates offers five single-family home designs ranging from 2,300 to 3,500 square feet, with three to four bedrooms and two-and-a-half to four-and-a-half baths. These well-thought-out, trend-forward floor plans feature bright and open Great Rooms that flow seamlessly into gourmet kitchens designed for enjoying life with family and friends. Each home also features a generous owner’s suite with a spa-inspired bath.

With an eye toward flexibility, select floor plans can be expanded to 4,305 square feet with a completed English basement boasting large, rear-facing windows that bathe basement space with abundant natural light. Homes can be further personalized with study alcoves, lofts and a choice of Craftsman or Traditional exterior styles that are accented with Cedar Impressions siding and metal porch roofs. Starting at the $390,000s, these homes offer an affordable way for growing families and move-up buyers to establish themselves in this prime Delaware location.

Summit Bridge Estates is the first phase of the Summit Bridge master-planned community, a 160-acre, 148-homesite development that will also include high-end townhomes and twin homes. Surrounding these homes is 58 acres of private and state conservation land, offering residents sweeping natural views and creating a buffer of open space around the community.

Because Summit Bridge is located on the north side of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal, residents will enjoy quick access to Route 896 and Route 40, and shorter commute times to major employment areas such as Wilmington and Philadelphia. The community is minutes from neighborhood shopping and dining, and is located just across the street from the 1,790-acre Lums Pond Park, home to the largest pond in the state offering boating, fishing, camping, hunting, hiking, snowmobiling and playing fields. Children living within Summit Bridge have the opportunity to attend schools in the Appoquinimink School District.
