Pulte Homes Inc. is building a community of resort homes at Hart’s Landing in Lewes, Del., three miles from Rehoboth Beach. Close by are Delaware Seashore State Park, Cape Henlopen State Park, the Marsh Island Golf Course and the Baywood Greens Golf Course.

Hart’s Landing offers a serene setting alongside Love Creek, with trees, open pastures and views of the Windswept Stables. The development includes an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and walking trails.

The single-family homes, priced from the upper $300,000s, have from 1,800 to almost 3,000 finished square feet. The homes have earned an Energy Star designation from the Environmental Protection Agency for their energy efficiency.

Each home has a choice of front elevations, with a porch, a sodded lawn and a two-car garage. Inside, the homes have two to four bedrooms, two full baths or 2-1/2 baths, a gas fireplace with a mantel in the family room, oak railings, 9-foot ceilings on the first floor, multimedia wiring, ceiling fan wiring, gas heat and water, a first-floor laundry room, and Colonial-style trim in the foyer, library, living room and dining room.

The kitchens each have 42-inch raised panel maple cabinets with brushed chrome knobs, Corian counters and GE Profile appliances. The kitchen, laundry room and baths have ceramic-tile flooring.

The Jetty model, the smallest with 1,823 square feet, has an L-shaped front patio and an open floor plan inside. The living room has a wall of windows facing the patio, and the separate dining room has a knee wall separating it from the foyer.

The kitchen and breakfast area open onto the family room. The first-floor master suite includes a walk-in closet and a bath with a double-sink vanity, a separate shower and a tub. The second bedroom has an adjacent full bath.

This model can be expanded with a sunroom, a screened porch and a loft level with a home office, a third bedroom and a third full bath.

The Harbor model, with 2,085 finished square feet, includes a library off the foyer with optional built-in shelving. A knee wall separates the foyer from the living room, which is open to the dining room. The family room opens onto the breakfast nook and kitchen.

The first-floor master suite includes a wall of windows, a dressing room, a double-sink vanity, a tub and separate shower and a walk-in closet. A second bedroom and a second full bath are near the library.

The laundry and utility room include storage space and a door to the garage.

Buyers can add a loft-level plan with a home office upstairs overlooking the family room, a third bedroom and a third full bath. A sunroom can be added off the kitchen and a screened porch can be added off the family room.
