Chesopeian Colony, One of the Best Neighborhoods in Virginia Beach
Chesopeian Colony may be small, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in character and location. Think of Chesopeian Colony as a mini Great Neck, or Little Neck. This shouldn’t be too hard because it’s on a peninsula and the houses and demographics of the two are similar as well.
I took the pictures of Chesopeian Colony in the slideshow below to give you a taste of the look and feel for what the homes and streets are like in Chesopeian Colony.
Quiet streets in Chesopeian Colony
Though the entrance to Chesopeian Colony is on Virginia Beach Blvd, there is no thru traffic. Of all the best neighborhoods in Virginia Beach, Chesopeian Colony probably has the shortest commute to the highway, making it extremely convenient and close to everything. Once you drive into the neighborhood, the streets are quiet, the yards and homes are well kept, and though there are no sidewalks like many of the older neighborhoods in Virginia Beach, you will find plenty of families walking and biking.
And then there is the water. It looks to me like there is a home on the water on every street in Chesopeian Colony. The neighborhood is at the bottom of the Lynnhaven River, so it can be tidal, making a boat lift a necessity. But they will be dredging soon! You wouldn’t be out of line calling Chesopeian Colony a waterfront community. If you don’t live on the water, it is likely that some of your neighbors do.
Check out the pictures above and the homes for sale below to give you a better idea of whether or not Chesopeian Colony is right for you. As always, you won’t know for sure until you do your research, pick up your phone to call me, and come to visit and go house hunting!
