Westover Hills Homes & Sales Update - Greenville DE 19807

Westover Hills continues to be a premier housing choice in Wilmington Delaware.

Westover Hills is situated in a prime location along Route 52 / Pennsylvania Avenue just beyond the Wilmington city limits. It was designed in four separate sections generally moving from the city limits beyond the original Wilmington Country Club property (now part of the University of Delaware) out toward Greenville. The first homes were completed in the 1920's and new construction continues to this day, but there were three particularly active construction periods from approximately 1935-1940, 1945-1956, and 1996-2000. This has afforded the community a wealth of individual home styles, sizes, and designs that have always attracted Wilmington's elite.

Today, with almost 400 properties, Westover Hills is the ideal community for those looking for luxury living in a suburban environment with easy access to Greenville, downtown Wilmington, and all the surrounding area. A buyer can find a property to suite almost any lifestyle, from comfortable classic Colonials, to custom Tudors, to large estate properties ranging to over 10,000 square feet of interior space on spacious private lots. Homes have been continually updated and expanded to reflect the current state of the art in housing. Developed to take advantage of it's natural location, it is a true neighborhood with winding streets, friendly neighbors, stability, and privacy.

Westover Hills is located close to the intersection of the Kennett Pike (Route 52) and Route 141 between Wilmington and Greenville. Route 52 is part of the Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway rich in area history and attractions. A number of small shopping areas with boutique style shopping for both food and clothing are nearby in Greenville and Centreville. In addition, it is a choice location with easy access to great schools - both public and private.

 The Westover Hills' location also provides easy access to downtown Wilmington as well as easy commuting options to Philadelphia, Chester County, Delaware County, and beyond. Westover Hills Delaware HomesAmtrak trains and SEPTA are moments away through the downtown Wilmington train station, while the Philadelphia International Airport is just a short distance across the PA line south of Philadelphia.

Housing prices in Westover Hills have experienced the same pricing cycle as seen through much of New Castle County. Prices and activity peaked in 2005 when there were 22 sales and bottomed in 2011 when there were only 11 completed transactions. Today, there are 9 properties on the market with an average listing price of $895,000 with individual prices ranging from $549,000 to over $1,500,000. Two properties are pending with an average asking price over $1,000,000. Six propeties have settled this year with an average sale price of $774,000.

Westover Hills continues to be a prime destination for those seeking top notch living in a convenient neighborhood offering privacy, luxury, and immediate access to everything the area has to offer.
