It could be argued that 19807, with its suburban-fading-to-genteely-rural vibe, is still the most desirable zip code in the state. The most exclusive golf and country clubs in Delaware call it home, as do high-end retailers. Established private schools like Tower Hill and Tatnall are a stone’s throw from many homes, but the public schools are steady performers. Galleries like Sommerville-Manning and The Station join heavies like the Delaware Museum of Natural History and Winterthur on the cultural front. A range of upscale housing, both new (i.e.: Applecross) and established (i.e.: Westover Hills), is available. Include Centreville here.
