About Silver Maple Farm Community

The Silver Maple Farm community, located in Middletown, DE, is a Delaware 55+ community administered by an HOA (actually a Maintenance Corporation) under Delaware Uniform Common interest Ownership (DUCIOA) law.  It is a community of single family homes where at least one owner resident must be at least 55 years old and no residents under 18 years of age are permitted.  The community is located in a quiet setting close to both the Silver Run Wildlife Area and Augustine State Wildlife Management Area on the eastern coast of New Castle County close to the Delaware River.

Silver Maple Farm offers a variety of amenities to its residents and guests including a clubhouse with café/kitchen, hearth room, fitness center, card room, yoga room, billiards room, ping-pong room, and a theater room.  It also offers an outdoor swimming pool with Tiki bar and BBQ area, tennis and pickle ball courts, and bocce and horseshoe courts.  Residents are invited to participate in a wide variety of club, social and travel activities.  Residents benefit from HOA shared services to care for their individual lots including landscaping, snow removal, and trash pickup.  Local streets are maintained by DelDOT.  The HOA also manages about 100 acres of common grounds consisting of turf areas, maintained gardens, natural meadows and reforestation areas, several miles of walking/biking trails, and a residents-only Victory Garden.  The proximity to coastal wetlands offers opportunities for bird watching and other wildlife viewing.

The community has easy driving access to Delaware Route 13 and Route 1 for travel to nearby shopping, restaurants, and recreational sites in Delaware and the eastern shore of Maryland.  It is about a 75 to 90 minute drive south to the Delaware beaches and about a 20-25 minute drive north to the Christiana Mall and Wilmington area.  Philadelphia is about an hour drive north and Baltimore is about 90 minutes west.
