The beauty of Hockessin is this: the feeling of country living—even in the quaint town center.
Few locations get you to Wilmington, a straight shot down Del. 48, in 10 minutes, the Philly airport in 35 and home for dinner on Friday. There is the peace and quiet of country living with beautiful rolling landscape, but with easy access to even King of Prussia and Baltimore.
Hockessin Chase, the Reserve at Hockessin Chase and North Star Chase are neighborhoods of traditional single-family homes. The Hockessin Mews development of townhomes at Del. 7 and Brackenville Road was an instant success when it was completed a few years ago.
Family is the operative word here. Yours will benefit from such good Red Clay District schools as Henry B. Dupont Middle School, two Montessori programs, North Star Elementary, beautiful Sanford School and Wilmington Christian School. (For homework time, send the kids to the Hockessin Library.) For your aging parents, there is Cokesbury Village, a continuing care community of active seniors that offers both cottage living and apartments (a community bus system makes local transportation a cinch), as well as Coffee Run, a condo community for folks of all ages.
