Lacrosse Homes to Build New Home Community in Historic Sudlersville, Md.

As noted on the Town website, “The community that was to become Sudlersville took root in 1740 when Joseph Sudler, a Kent Island landowner, purchased 800 acres south of the Chester River. The land included the homestead known as Sledmore, which had been built in 1713.  By the mid-1800s, the village had 15 houses, a general store, a Methodist Church, and a blacksmith. At the end of the century, there were about 40 houses and an assortment of commercial, ecclesiastical, and educational institutions. One of those was the Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church, which now houses the Sudlersville Memorial Library.”

Lacrosse Homes is a Maryland-based privately held company that has built townhomes and single-family homes for over 25 years. They are known for successful developments such as Ellendale at Kent Island as well as Ashby Commons, a community of townhomes and single-family homes in historic Easton, Md. 

“We are pleased to bring our decades of experience and success to Foxx Farm,” said Lindsay Dixon president of Lacrosse Homes. “This is an exciting opportunity for the town of Sudlersville. The master plan for the 90-acre Foxx Farm consists of 98 luxury garage townhomes and 129 single-family detached residences. We’ve worked closely with the Town to create a special community that enhances the unique character and charm of Sudlersville while providing the most up-to-date new home designs. Our goal is to create a one-of-a-kind neighborhood for area residents as well as provide a positive economic boost for local businesses, enhance property values of area residents, and preserve the historic presence of Sudlersville.”

Foxx Farm is named in honor of Jimmie Foxx, the “Sudlersville Slugger” Hall of Fame baseball player who hailed from the small town and was the greatest right-handed slugger of his time. Located in Queen Anne’s County south of the Chester River and in Maryland’s bucolic Eastern Shore Foxx Farm is a short 15-minute drive to Middletown, DE, close to major commuting routes such as 301 and puts work and leisure within easy reach. The community is situated directly across from Sudlersville Park offering over 36 acres of activities such as Baseball, Basketball, Pickleball, Soccer, Tennis, Trails, Picnic areas, and more.

Sales at Foxx Farm are expected to start in January 2024 with the release of homes in Phase I of the development. Those interested in further information are asked to register on our website to receive updates as news develops.
