September 1-Fernmoor Homes and their partners gathered Aug. 28 at the future site of the four-story Mendocino West condominium development to celebrate another addition to the Vineyards community.

“We are so proud of how far we have come in the past 10 years, not just the progress that’s been made developing the area with beautiful single-family homes, luxury apartments and retail spaces to this stunning property, but to help address the increased demand of home buyers in Southern Delaware by offering a diverse and well-rounded community to call home,” said Fernmoor Homes founder and President Jeffrey Fernbach, who said his company has been recognized for excellence by Shore Builders League of New Jersey, t New Jersey Builders Association, the Home Builders Association of Delaware and the National Builders Association.

The new condominiums at Mendocino West will start at $205,900, featuring two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an office or flex space in some units. These condos will boast premium features such as granite counter tops, ceramic tile, walk-in closets, balconies, stainless steel appliances, central air and natural gas, with infrastructure in place for sewer, water, gas, and other utilities.

“One of the things that we take great pride in is the ability to offer many unique amenities that all our residents can enjoy. We feel that this can only lead to a revolving door of benefits. With such a large property, it was important to not only build homes, but a strong foundation of communal values and retreats. One of the things we are very excited about is the roughly 5-acre lake on our site, and how we will take advantage of this great area for things such as a fishing pier, kayaking/pedal boat launch, and even constructing a beach for volleyball and relaxation,” Fernbach said.

Owners will also have access to all the amenities of the Vineyards community, such as two clubhouses with both a fitness center and pool, a jogging path, children’s park and play area, sports such as bocce ball and horseshoes, a dog park and and the lakeside activities.’

The Vineyards will continue to grow, reflecting the hard work and dedication of Fernmoor Homes and all partners involved. The grounds are currently home to many luxury apartments, a wide variety of retail stores and spaces, unique amenities, single-family homes and a clubhouse.

An anticipated completion date of the new condominium building is the spring or summer 2019.

“It is great to take a major step in development today as I cut the ribbon at the Mendocino West site,” Fernbach said. “It has been our mission to open our minds and listen to resident feedback on how we can continue to add additional amenities and unique aspects to our community thus resulting in the overall happiness of everyone who lives here now and will in the near future.”
