Walnut Walk is Expanding


Walnut Walk’s second building is nestled in the woods, offering a scenic lifestyle with maximum privacy. 

Bentley Homes’ highly anticipated townhome community, Walnut Walk, is exceeding homeowners’ standards. Since it’s Grand Opening a few months ago, potential buyers have been flocking to the community to see what it’s all about. With its prime location – just minutes from downtown Kennett Square and award winning schools – the Unionville Chadds Ford School District, its no surprise that the townhomes are a hot commodity. In fact, Walnut Walk has now started construction on the second building!

The second building is situated in an ideal location within the community. These lots are nestled in the woods and surrounded by overlapping trees, offering maximum privacy. Buyers can enjoy the excitement of the multitude of shops and restaurants in downtown Kennett, then retreat back to their peaceful townhome. In total, the second building has six units. As of now, three have been sold and one is deposited, meaning that there are only two units remaining!

Bentley anticipates that these last two units will be gone in a blink of an eye. If you’re interested in a luxury townhome with custom features situated on a serene lot, building two is a seamless match. However, if the decision-making process is taking longer than previously anticipated, don’t fret! Bentley will soon begin the construction on the third building with hopes of all units completed by November/December – right in time for the holidays!

Fresh Designs for Your Home in 2016


Modern Decorating Shown in a Bentley Model Home

Although we are a few weeks into January, it’s never too late to refresh your home. All of the decorations have been stored away, and we have all rested from the holiday — it is the perfect time to start revitalizing your home’s decorations. We here at Bentley Homes, builders of new luxury homes in Chester County, use professional decorators for our show homes; however, you can still have that beautiful pulled together look with just a few simple accessory changes.

The first step is to move all of the accessories out of the room; from artwork to knick-knacks and even window dressing, this will give you a fresh palette to start with. One of the easiest ways to refresh your rooms is to reframe your photos or artwork; you can choose a vintage, white washed style for a more nouveau look, or reclaimed barn wood to add some country.

When it comes to luxury homes in Delaware County, the trends are to make walls almost disappear into the background; using lighter colors, these walls make the decorations and accessories in your home the star of the room.

You can spruce up your bedroom by adding colorful pillows with fun textures; or add an area rug to change the color scheme. Keep in mind that although you might have a new luxury home in Chester county, that doesn’t mean all of your accessories need to be new as well; look in closets or moving boxes for vintage finds to add to the décor in your home.

For the great room/family room, you don’t have to change out the artwork – just change where it hangs, and/or add a light. This is where LED lights come in handy; that cool light can be just the thing to highlight a piece of artwork, plus their fairly easy to install.

Bentley Homes, purveyors of new luxury homes in Chester and Delaware Counties, wishes you and yours a happy new year!

For parents of teenagers, Unionville High School is the place to be, as the school is ranked eighth in Pennsylvania.

These Gardens include beautiful flowers to meander through, as well as performances and special seasonal exhibits throughout the year. Pennsylvania’s very own Flickerwood Wine Tasting Room and Paradcox Vineyard are mere minutes from Walnut Walk, always a delight to visit.

Avid golfers will love the Walnut Walk, as it is just down the street from the Kennett Country Club, which boasts an 18-hole golf course with pine-tree-lined fairways, as well as a restaurant and even swimming, available.

Winter Weather has Begun. Tips to Help you to Maintain this Year’s Snow!


It’s that time of year where the weather has turned colder and snow will begin to fall at your new home in Delaware County, Pa. As the weather forecasters are predicting an above average amount of snow this winter, planning for the onslaught is an excellent idea.

There are many ways of removing snow from your Main Line Home and property. They include snow removal equipment, such as a Caterpillar, truck and/or ATV plow and snow blower/thrower, as well as of course, your everyday snow shovel. When choosing which method you will use to clear your snow this year, whether you are a new home owner or a seasoned veteran, it is important to look at what you need cleared (driveway, walkway, etc.) and how quickly it needs to be cleared.

Whether you choose a Cat, plow or snow thrower, the following tips apply:

  • Mark the edges of your driveway with reflectors. This allows you to outline what needs to be cleared, and is especially helpful if you hire someone to clear your driveway. Ensure you mark any dips or ditches in your driveway as well.
  • After the first snowfall, drive your vehicle around to compact the snow. You will need a good base for plowing, and it will allow you to clear your driveway without throwing up any rocks if you are using a snowblower.
  • Rock salt and sandbags are a necessity in the winter. You should have some kept in your home, as well as in your truck or vehicle. Sandbags make an excellent counterweight, giving your vehicle more traction in the snow, and when opened can be used for traction if you get stuck.

Most important, no matter the weather we’re expecting in Delaware County this season, stay safe and be careful when venturing outside!

Fall Has Arrived!


Fall has arrived at your home in Chester County; the trees have turned into a riot of color, and there is a definite nip in the air. The fireplace beckons, as does a mug of hot cocoa and a good book. Autumn is a great time of year to express warmth indoors; here are a few tips from Bentley Homes to make your new home in Delaware County, Pa., comfy and cozy.

  1. Seasonal changes

Now is the perfect time to swap out your summer colors and exchange them for warmer tones. Use chocolate-colored throw pillows for your couch, and throw a soft, crème blanket over your reading chair to cuddle in. Other ways to bring warmer colors to your home are rugs, which you can combine color with function—nothing is better than digging your toes in a soft rug!

It is also time to switch your summer, light bedding for warmer winter comforters; the fall shades can be used here as well, to make your room look even more inviting. A cinnamon-colored quilt or throw is ideal for the end of your bed.

  1. Outdoors in

What better way to spend a fall afternoon than picking fiery red leaves and pinecones for your table? Bring the outdoors in by drying out your leaves, and finishing them with a sealer from your local craft store. You can also add a pop of color to your autumn bouquet by adding a peacock feather.

It may be fall, but fresh flowers are still available. Choose cheery sunflowers, bright gardenias and other seasonal blooms for your vases. Tie bouquets with an orange or red ribbon, to highlight shades of the flowers or your room.

  1. Seasonal warmth to table

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, meaning there is a cornucopia of ideas for your dinner table. Other than flowers, you can use multicolored gourds, corn and even fresh wheat for your centrepiece. Show off the bounty of your home in Delaware County with the local harvest.
