Although it's one of the smallest states in the country, Delaware contains within its narrow borders a diverse array of urban environments and thousands of townhouses in both historical street-front settings and quiet, modern developments. In keeping with the state's rich history, many of these townhouses are built in the Colonial or Victorian styles prevalent during Delaware's heyday in the 18th and 19th centuries. As the state's economy grew during the 20th century thanks to the continued success of local companies like DuPont and robust public institutions like the University of Delaware, new residents flocked to the state from around the world to experience the "Delaware miracle."
Delaware is divided into two basic regions: an agricultural south and an urbanized north that was initially home to some of America's first factories and later hosted some of the finest townhouse developments to be found anywhere. In the north, the picturesque Delaware River and Delaware Bay define the state's eastern boundary, with many of its finest townhouse rentals occupying the crisp new developments that have sprung up within view of the water.
Despite the wealth of prime locations from which they can choose, prospective renters never fail to be amazed by the affordability of even the most spacious Delaware townhouses. New tenants pay just $1,050 per month for a 3-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom Newark townhouse with 1,250 square feet of usable space, a veritable steal given the town's proximity to Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Wilmington townhouses like a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom urban gem that features ample square footage on three different levels for under $800 per month are also popular with commuters who can walk to Wilmington's train station from the city's central residential district and be in Philly within the hour.
With its picturesque pasturelands and miles of beautiful shoreline marshes, southern Delaware is a world away from the urban north. Tourist hotspots like Rehoboth Beach and Shelbyville attract weekenders and day-trippers from major cities up and down the Eastern Seaboard with their maritime-themed downtowns, while the rural areas away from the coast draw cyclists and naturalists.
Many one-time visitors decide to stay behind in this enchanted region. Prospective renters can go big with larger Selbyville townhouses that hold four bedrooms, three bathrooms, multiple bonus rooms and ocean views on three different levels, all for less than the price of a comparable apartment.
