Lagomar, Virginia Beach Neighborhoods
While there is a lot of new construction in the Virginia Beach, it can’t match the large lots and mature trees of an established neighborhood like Lagomar. In addition, there is a canal system that runs through the neighborhood connecting waterfront homes to deep water access and Virginia’s Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Waterfront home owners enjoy the convenience of docking their boat at their home along with all the other benefits associated with waterfront living. None of the other neighborhoods with quality homes for sale in South Virginia Beach currently offer such a feature.
Neighborhood Golf in Lagomar
Hell’s Point Golf Club is in Lagomar only minutes from the center of the neighborhood. The Virginia Pilot’s reader’s poll has voted Hell’s Point “The Best of the Beach” for 15 years running and when it opened in 1982, Golf Digest awarded it “One of America’s 100 Best New Courses.” It is one of Virginia Beach’s semi-private golf clubs, offering both private and corporate memberships. If you golf and are looking for a home for sale in a Virginia Beach neighborhood, it doesn’t get much more convenient than Lagomar.

Lagomar is actually divided into two parts. The southern half of the neighborhoods is older and more established. Most of the homes here were built in the the '80s and '90s. The northern half is technically The Back Bay at Lagomar. The homes here have all been built since about 2005. The Back Bay at Lagomar feels very similar to Heritage Park because many of the builders built similar homes in both neighborhoods at about the same time. However, Lagomar and Heritage Park are both in the Kellam High School District. The Back Bay at Lagomar is in Ocean Lakes. I haven't talked to a single parent who, given the choice, would choose Ocean Lakes over Kellam (that doesn't mean there aren't any, it just means there probably aren't many). Regardless, Lagomar is beautiful and should be on the short list of potential neighborhoods if you choose to live in the southern half of Virginia Beach.
