The North End, Virginia Beach

The North End, Virginia Beach Professional Review and Guide

"The North End, as locals call the neighborhoods in the northeastern corner of the city, is one of the most prestigious addresses in Virginia Beach. Residents have fiercely protected the area from commercialization. Many families have lived there for generations. Some of the homes in the North End are second homes for wealthy families and individuals from the state capital in Richmond or other cities around Virginia Beach.

The neighborhood’s eclectic character results from the juxtaposition of quaint cedar-shake cottages, some dating from the early part of the 20th century, to modern stucco beach mansions. Giant live oak trees and pines dominate the landscaping, and the sound of waves breaking on the beach in many places drowns out the noise of cars passing just beyond the oleander hedges. Special attractions: Beach cottages dating from the early 1900s, Greystone Manor (a recent addition to the National Register of Historic Places), the Association for Research and Enlightenment, historic Cavalier on the Hill Hotel, and a $103 million seawall project."
