There are a handful of places that come to mind when I think of the best neighborhoods in Virginia Beach. They all have loyal followings, but Alanton is near the top.
Ashville Park is one of the newest neighborhoods in Virginia Beach, as well as one of the largest. The homes come with open floor plans and a beautiful neighborhood. Ashville Park is one of the few neighborhoods in southern Virginia Beach to have a neighborhood pool.
Bay Colony in Virginia Beach is one of the few neighborhoods that allows for quiet living away from traffic, but is still within biking distance to the beach. Bay Colony offers that residential feel with winding streets and private driveways that can be hard to come by so close to the beach. Bay Colony has the perfect mix of quiet residential and beach living. If your price range is over about $600,000, Bay Colony will be near the top of your list of favorite neighborhoods.
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.
Chick's Beach is short for Chesapeake Beach. It runs along the coast of the Chesapeake Bay at the top of Virginia Beach. You will find single family homes and condos, as well as plenty of local seafood restaurants and marinas. Let's not forget the beach! It's a local's favorite. It has the same water as the ocean but without the waves.
A house hunting trip in the southern part of Virginia Beach would not be complete without checking out Christopher Farms, one of my favorite neighborhoods. Developed in the 1990’s, Christopher Farms is new enough that the homes have open floor plans, but old enough that there are mature trees.
The neighborhood of Croatan is right on the beach, but it is set apart from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk and it doesn’t have the thru traffic of the North End. The entrance is hidden away just south of Rudee Inlet where it opens up into a wonderful neighborhood of three story single family homes within a couple blocks of the beach.
Let's build the ideal golf community in Virginia Beach. Cypress Point combines the ideal setting of the Cypress Point Golf Club with lifestyles and choices that include luxury single family homes, condominiums on or near the golf course and townhome living as well. The clubhouse includes a lounge, snack bar, dining, banquet facilities, a pro shop and much more.
In my humble opinion, East Beach is the most beautiful neighborhood in Hampton Roads. While every neighborhood has its drawbacks, East Beach overcomes hers with attention to detail that only a planned community can provide. East Beach is beautiful because the architecture and landscaping work together to tug at your heart strings (yes, I really said that). While technically in Norfolk, East Beach shares the personality of many Virginia Beach neighborhoods, so it is included here.
Great Neck is a peninsula right in the middle of the northern half of Virginia Beach. If your budget is over about $400,000 Great Neck will be a strong candidate for your choice of neighborhoods in Virginia Beach. The schools are very strong and the commute is short to the Chesapeake Bay, the Atlantic beaches, the highway, and Whole Foods (or Kroger, Farm Fresh, or any of the seemingly endless supply of restaurants and bars).
Heritage Park is a newer development in Virginia Beach characterized by all brick houses with backyards that open up into community space. That’s right, almost every house in Heritage Park backs up to open space or a lake. This is important so I’ll say it again. The houses in Heritage Park don’t back up to each other. The homes are beautiful, the schools are excellent, and you are only five minutes from Sandbridge Beach or Red Mill Commons Shopping Center.
Lagomar is one of the best neighborhoods in Virginia Beach. Quality homes for sale and quiet streets are only the beginning. South Virginia Beach is growing and Lagomar is right in the heart of it all. It is within minutes of Sandbridge Beach, Hells Point Golf Club, and the Red Mill Commons shopping center. Lagomar is in the Kellam High School district, one of the best.
Sylvan Lake is the coolest little neighborhood you never heard of in Virginia Beach. Located in the middle of Great Neck with tree lined roads and an early 80’s architectural appeal, Sylvan Lake is a neighborhood that reminds me of my childhood. It is unique for two reasons. First, the houses are cool looking in that back to the future kind of way. nd second, there’s a big lake in the middle of the neighborhood that you can swim in! Or kayak in. Even fish in!
There is nothing like living within walking distance of the ocean. In many beach towns on the East Coast, living on the ocean means isolation, like the Outer Banks. The North End in Virginia Beach is different because the city hums along at about the same pace year round. Sure the boardwalk hotels swell in the summer, but most of us don't even seem to notice. The residents of the North End can enjoy the beach from April through October.
