Some of the biggest companies in America call Delaware home. Wilmington headquarters companies like DuPont, AstraZeneca, Chemours, Invista, Navient, Sallie Mae, not to mention 28 of the biggest banks in the country. What this means is that there are a lot of executive-level employees living and working in a relatively small area. If you work in Wilmington, or will be relocating there for a job, there are three big reasons you should consider living in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania:

 

1.)   Great School Choices – The schools in and around Kennett Square are highly rated – between Kennett Consolidated, Unionville-Chadds Ford, and Avon Grove school districts, you have many choices for highly-ranked schools in academics, athletics, the arts, and special needs.

 

2.)   Thriving After Hours Scene – Kennett Square is a vibrant community full of restaurants, breweries, pubs, coffee shops, and boutiques. While some areas become much quieter after 6pm, Kennett Square really starts to come alive. The area is made up of beautiful, historic buildings and downtown often hosts unique, local festivals and celebrations for the whole family to enjoy.

 

One of the best things about the Kennett Square neighborhoods is that it is completely walkable. This is a huge advantage working professionals who want to stretch their legs on their way to grab dinner with the family after work. It’s also a big plus for stay at home moms and wives, who want to stroll into downtown for yoga, brunch with the girls, or who just want to get the kids out to play and enjoy the midday sunshine.

3.) Maintain Work/Life Balance – Wilmington is bursting at the seams with executives and upper-level employees, which means it can be hard to feel like you’ve left the office. If you want to truly get away at the end of the day, you’ll want to put some distance between you and the office. Kennett Square is just a short commute home, but feels worlds apart.

 

Grab a beer at local Victory Brewing without running into your employees or colleagues. Allow your evenings and weekends to be completely dedicated to family and friends, unwinding and having fun. That way, when you return to Wilmington and the office on Monday morning, you’ll feel refreshed and ready to give it your all.

 

Kennett Square has some of the most beautiful houses in the state, too. Once you walk away from the downtown scene and into the suburbs, you’ll find high end homes that appeal to those who appreciate the finer things in life – intricate details and upgraded amenities.

 

4.) The Perfect Home is Available Now  612 E. Magnolia Court is the perfect home for businessmen and businesswomen who want to live in a luxury home representative of their position, but want to keep their home life separate from the Wilmington workspace.

 

This house features gorgeous detailing, a large kitchen and island, a waterfall shower, and three stories plus an office/den on the fourth floor. 612 E. Magnolia Court is completely turnkey – ideal for a busy professional looking to move in quickly with everything they need already in place.

 

It’s a space you really do need to see for yourself, so take a virtual tour of the house and some of our favorite places in Kennett Square to really get a feel for the town and the space.
