Please continue to read as I give you a short list of my top neighborhoods in Suffolk, Virginia.
Burbage Grant Neighborhood
My first neighborhood is one of the larger and more established neighborhoods on my list. It’s located in the north end of Suffolk near the border of Chesapeake and also very close to the Monitor-Merrimac bridge. The neighborhood of Burbage Grant was first started in 1994. This neighborhood is a nice mixture of both single family homes and townhomes. One of the main reasons I have this neighborhood listed is due to the large range in prices that are available. The townhomes currently are being listed in the mid-$200s and range 1,200-1,800 square feet. Most of these townhouses were built in the late nineties. As far as the detached single family homes, they range in size from 1,800-3,600 square feet and start in price from the mid-$300s up to $600,000. These houses were mostly finished in the late 2000s.
Bennett’s Creek Quarter Neighborhood
The neighborhood of Bennett’s Creek Quarter is the newest neighborhood on my list. This neighborhood is located near Bennett’s Creek near the Harborview area. This neighborhood has a good mixture of pricing, however all the houses are condos, therefore you will be paying additional condo fees. Construction in this neighborhood started in 2021 and continues today. Depending on the style you like, this neighborhood has 3 story townhome style homes or the more traditional condo style attached homes. From a size perspective these homes range from 1,200-2,300 square feet and are priced new at the mid $200s to upper $400s. Beyond just being new, a benefit of this neighborhood is it’s more centrally located to other cities in Hampton Roads and not far from the major highways in the city of Suffolk.
Nansemond Pointe Neighborhood
The neighborhood of Nansemond Pointe is one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city of Suffolk, Virginia. It’s located along the Nansemond River and consists of 86 homes mostly built between 1999-2004. This neighborhood is a wonderful collection of elegant brick homes with large half-acre lots. The sizes of the homes vary greatly with the smallest around 2,800 square feet all the way up to 6,000 square feet. The bedroom count is mostly 4-5 bedrooms, however you can find some with 6 and 7 bedrooms in this neighborhood. As far as pricing goes, due to its great location near the water, the median house price currently is right around $609,000. I really like this neighborhood due to its country feel based on its rural location. Additionally it’s a short walk to the Sleepy Hole Park, which as I have noted in previous articles, is a wonderful park for families and people of all ages.
