Home Builder’s Association of Delaware Gives Bayside Eight Regal Awards Including “Community of the Year” and “Best Amenity Value”

FENWICK ISLAND, DE. June 2, 2015 – Bayside, the latest Carl M. Freeman Community has been named Community of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Delaware, a member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The family beach and golf community won seven additional prestigious Regal awards: Community With Best Amenity Value, Sussex County’s Community of the Year, Best Community Exterior Merchandising, Best Marketing Print Ad, Best Image Campaign, Best Event Promotion and Best Use of Technology.

“We are so very excited and proud. The Home Builders Association of Delaware reviewed dozens of communities and selected Bayside as the top choice for family fun,” says Michelle D. Freeman, President & CEO of Carl M. Freeman Companies. “These awards validate the hard work, creativity and dedication our team provides every day to make Bayside a beach community like no other.”

Ideally situated in Fenwick Island, just four miles from the beach, Bayside comprises nearly one thousand acres overlooking the Assawoman Bay and features a master-planned 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Opportunities for family fun and resort living, with community pools, tennis programs, kayaking and paddle boarding, stocked ponds for fishing, walking and fitness trails, delicious dining and special activities for kids of all ages. Breaking ground in 2016, the year-round indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, and community outdoor space will offer another opportunity for Bayside’s family and friends to gather together.

At Bayside, small-town charm meets big-time amenities, with nearby high-end grocery stores, banks, and restaurants, as well as the Freeman Stage, where locals gather on summer nights to enjoy a line-up of world-class musicians and award-winning dance, theater and children’s performances, right in their own backyards. And if that’s not enough, the unique Bayside Institute lets the grown-ups slip away for a few precious hours of “me time” to explore their own interests—from wine and beer tasting, to cooking classes, to meditation.

The Regal awards coincide with a special moment in Bayside history: it’s ten-year anniversary. “It’s truly momentous to see Bayside recognized. I grew up in Delaware, and it’s my greatest joy to create places for families to enjoy all our state has to offer,” says Freeman.
