Here is my guide to the Birdneck Point neighborhood in Virginia Beach.

Birdneck Point

Location

Birdneck Point is one of Virginia Beach’s most sought-after neighborhoods.  Nestled along Laskin Road on its own small deep-water peninsula, surrounded by the waters of Little Neck Creek and Linkhorn Bay, it is one of the most distinctive communities in Virginia Beach.

Current Homes for Sale

The homes for sale vary widely in price.  As of this writing, there are beautiful brick ranch homes available for $450,000 down the street from $3,500,000 waterfront estates.  You won’t find many short sales or foreclosures.  Below you’ll find a sample of current homes for sale:

The Birdneck Point Community

Birdneck Point is said to have been named after the shape of the neighborhood, which juts out into Linkhorn Bay like the long neck of a bird.  It was originally settled as farmland in the 18th century.

In the 1920s, the famed Cavalier Hotel at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront bought a private golf course on Birdneck Point. The golf course was purchased for the exclusive use of Cavalier Hotel members and was renamed the “Cavalier Country Club.”  Over the years the remaining farmland on the little peninsula was slowly sold off and developed.  But unlike other neighborhoods with cookie-cutter floorplans and repetitive designs, the homes here are mostly unique. Custom brick homes are the rule.  Deep water access criss-crosses the neighborhood, and ancient trees shelter the homes below.

There are many waterfront homes in Birdneck Point, and most of these provide deep water access to Linkhorn Bay, the Chesapeake Bay, and eventually, the Atlantic Ocean.

Convenience

Birdneck Point offers fast access to I-264, but is also close to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, Hilltop Shopping Center, Virginia Beach Convention Center, art museums, NAS Oceana, and Fort Story.  If you like golfing, boating, fine wines, and haute cuisine, the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club is for you.

Shopping

There are many shopping opportunities nearby along Laskin Road, but Birdneck Point is also convenient to Lynnhaven Mall, the boutiques at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, and Town Center.

Schools

Birdneck Point is in the Cox High School District.  Linkhorn Park Elementary School is nearby, Cape Henry Collegiate (a local private school) is close, and Birdneck Point is also served by Virginia Beach Middle School.

Waterfront Homes

The waterfront homes face Linkhorn Bay or Little Neck Creek.  A few of the homes along the northeastern shore of Birdneck Point face Bay Colony.  The homes along the northwestern shore face Linkhorn Estates and Linlier.  For those without private waterfront access, the marina at the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club offers a secure mooring for vessels of almost any size.
