"Great neighborhood in Hockessin"

This is one of the early developments in the Hockessin area -- established when the Hockessin post office was too small to handle all the new houses so we were put in the Newark zip code which is very confusing for people trying to find you. The great thing about this area is that the houses are big and the yards are huge because land was cheap in the 80's and you could get a lot of house for a little money compared to neighborhoods in north Wilmington. Hockessin has grown tremendously and therefore there is plenty of shopping and restaurants close by. Also, there is a large library, a PAL center and two beautiful county parks close by. The University of Delaware is only 10 minutes down the road. The area has a very rural feel -- there is even a dairy farm right down the road in nearby Pennsylvania. It's a bit of a drive to get to I-95 and the city of Wilmington but it's a very vibrant area with lots to offer.
