Strolling down sidewalks shaded by oak trees, experience the New Urbanism that is East Beach. There is a palatable sense of Neighborhood. Situated on 100 acres along the Chesapeake Bay, you can experience the grandeur and grace of Norfolk waterfront living. The architectural designs of the homes in East Beach are fashioned after classic southeastern seaboard coastal villages. East Beach homes include brownstone townhomes, manor condominiums as well as cottages and elegant large waterfront homes, the majority built by a Guild of custom builders who adhere to a high standard of excellence which pays off in the rich architectural palette that East Beach has created. Many of the homes in East Beach feature detached Carriage House garages with finished apartments above which are perfect as in-law or guest suites or which can be used to generate rental income.
East Beach is a neighborhood designed to bring people together – on the sidewalks, in the parks, and on their porches. This is a neighborhood designed for pedestrians with plenty of walking paths and bay front greens which enhance livability and create open spaces for this beachfront community. They also provide venues for music, local farmers’ markets or other community events. Walk just a few short blocks to the Chesapeake Bay and take advantage of the amenities and activities at the Bay Front Club. One of the greatest pleasures of living on the bay is simply strolling along the beach, enjoying the sand between your toes, the salty air, and the rhythmic lapping of the waves on the shore. The bay’s warm waters and gentle waves create an ideal playground for children and make swimming both pleasurable and safe. Jet-skis, windsurfers, kayaks, and small boats can be easily launched from the beach.
Walk in the other direction to Pretty Lake’s deep water marinas and the shops along Pretty Lake Avenue. From the deep-water marinas at Pretty Lake, larger boats have easy access to the bay and the world-class fishing found at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel, with no bridges to limit the height of your mast.
Book Clubs, Wine Clubs, Progressive Dinners – there is no shortage of opportunities to socialize with others who call East Beach home. And if the walk is too far, just hop in your golf carts, as this is one of only a few communities in Coastal Virginia which allows golf carts on the streets.
Experience the richness of Neighborhood that is East Beach!
