East Beach is the Jewel of Ocean View in Norfolk

The Ocean View section of Norfolk houses beautiful residences along the Atlantic coastline in a new community called East Beach. It is no secret that this part of town has undergone a major transformation through revitalization efforts. Upscale condos and pretty beach cottages have replaced less desirable dwellings. Residents have easy access to the longest fishing pier in the United States- the Ocean View Fishing Pier. Find a book at the Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branch Library. Don’t forget to take a trip down Norfolk’s memory lane at the Ocean View Station Museum inside the library.

East Beach offers something no place else in Hampton Roads can- a luxurious, waterfront community in a distinctly urban environment. Homes in this Shangri-La of Ocean View are built with impeccable detailing. Styles combine elements of traditional Southern homes and cozy, mid-Atlantic beach bungalows to create a community that exudes casual elegance. Residents can enjoy concerts and festivals throughout the year, as well as a whole slew of amenities in this development. The Chesapeake Bay beach allows for swimming, beachcombing, jogging, shell collecting and biking. The builders of this Norfolk neighborhood have shown that life really can be as good as buyers dreamed it could be.

Single-family houses are quite lovely and come in many styles in this Norfolk development. Most homes feature porches and at least two stories. Each home is different enough to be unique but similar enough so that there is a feeling of continuity. If East Beach sounds like it might be a fit but large homes are too much maintenance, there are other options. Townhomes are available in this Ocean View community. These brick townhouses may come with hardwood flooring, 10-foot ceilings and granite countertops. Another possibility could lie within the East Beach Villas. These luxury condo units offer different layouts and give residents full access to the amenities of East Beach.

Finding amenities in this desired Norfolk neighborhood is easy to do. While Ocean View itself offers much to do, residents of East Beach don’t even need to leave the compound to enjoy themselves. Those who love the surf and sand can easily access the beach via the convenient beach walkovers. Like games? Try out the lawn chess and checkers set, play croquet and use the putting green ovals to work on that golf swing. Take the family to the on-site parks. Hang out with friendly neighbors at the Bay Front Club and Tower. Highlights of this entertainment hub include a pool, fitness facility, library, party room and conference center.
