Here’s my neighborhood guide to Princess Anne Hills in Virginia Beach.
Princess Anne Hills, Virginia Beach
Princess Anne Hills is a secluded neighborhood in Virginia Beach. It is a small landside community between 62nd and 59th streets. Even though it’s tiny, it is prestigious. Many of the homes in Princess Anne Hills are on the shores of Crystal Lake, and offer deep waterfront access to Broad Bay and the Chesapeake Bay.
In 1956 a consortium of investors purchased a tract of land just to the west of 59th Street and Atlantic Avenue in Virginia Beach. Their purpose was to build a small, secluded community bordering on Crystal Lake and First Landing State Park.
The new development was officially called Princess Anne Hills Park. The project was carried out in four phases spanning over a ten-year period. Early on, the decision was made to name the three main streets of the development Susan Constant, Discovery, and Goodspeed after the three ships which brought settlers to Virginia in 1607. The initial landing was a place, which today is known as First Landing State Park, located approximately one mile distant from Princess Anne Hills.
As the civic league says above, First Landing State Park is only a mile away. The beach is a few blocks away across Atlantic Avenue.
