RHP Properties in Farmington Hills, a private owner and operator of manufactured home communities, has announced the acquisition of three five-star manufactured home communities in Delaware, bringing its total to 311 nationwide. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Rehoboth Beach portfolio includes the communities of Colonial East in Rehoboth Beach and Sussex East and Sussex West, both in Lewes, Del. Combined, there are a total of 690 home sites, including mostly multi-section homes with garages.
Colonial East is an all-age community located directly on Route 1, across from the popular Tanger Outlets Rehoboth – Surfside. It features a pool and a clubhouse.
Sussex East and West are 55+ communities located directly on the newly developed Georgetown-Lewes Trail, a pedestrian and cycling trail that takes residents directly to the beach. The communities share an office called The Manor House, with amenities including a clubhouse and indoor pool. Both communities have large home sites.
“RHP Properties is pleased to announce the acquisition of this portfolio, which features three well established communities in an area known for its high quality of life,” says Ross Partrich, CEO of RHP. “RHP is proud to continue the 50-year legacy of the local ownership group that developed these communities and carry on their tradition of excellence and service.
“We look forward to introducing RHP Social, our community programming that brings residents together with events such as barbeques, bingo, arts and crafts and many other events, to enhance the sense of community for our residents.”
The Rehoboth area is an upscale resort and beach town located two hours from Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Philadelphia, and less than four hours from New York City. AARP named it a retirement “Dream Town.”
