Beach lovers longing for a summer home or a year-round home near the water may be tired of looking at tiny villas or condominiums meant to accommodate a small family on a weekend jaunt. At Henlopen Landing in Lewes, Del., Ryan Homes is building single-family houses with up to five bedrooms and 4-1/2 baths, perfect for accommodating a large family or inviting friends and relatives home for beach vacations.

The builder is including a finished basement for buyers who use the preferred lender, an unusual feature for homes in this area.

Henlopen Landing residents are minutes away from the historic town of Lewes and other nearby resort areas with plenty of shops and restaurants. Reaching local beaches, bays and golf courses will be a breeze from this community near Delaware Routes 1 and 9. The development itself includes a swimming pool.

The single-family homes at Henlopen Landing are base-priced from the $290,000s to the $410,000s, with homeowner association fees of $750 per year.

The homes include brick and stone fronts, two-car garages, professional landscaping and sodded lawns.

Buyers can add bay windows to the rooms, change the third bedroom into a study and add a morning room or screened porch off the kitchen. The finished basement includes two living areas, a storage room and a bathroom.

The Springbrook model, priced from the mid-$370,000s, has a formal dining room off the foyer and a great room which is open to the kitchen and breakfast area. Buyers can add a gas fireplace and extra windows to the great room.
