Where We Live: Virginia Beach builder’s home offers large master bedroom

VIRGINIA BEACH — Sometimes a builder builds his own home and, as might be expected, that home will often have a few extra bells and whistles that set it apart from others around it.

Such is the case at 928 Daimler Drive, off of Dam Neck in Virginia Beach.

Built in 1991, the home has a couple of unique attributes.

“It was the builder’s own home, so it included extra size, woodwork, and special touches here and there,” said Ken Longo, the home’s listing agent and a realtor with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.

One place the extra size shows up, he pointed out, is in the master bedroom.

“The master is huge,” said Longo. “There’s plenty of space for a dressing area, or room for a desk or two and an office space, or for a sofa or duvet to make it a sitting area.”

Any of those things could be done without making the room feel cluttered or full.

Another possibility, said Lungo, is that new parents could use the extra space in the master bedroom for their newborn baby. There’s plenty of room for a crib, without making the room feel small or tight, or difficult to navigate. Parents would then be able to sleep confidently and hear their newborn baby as it slept close by.

Architecturally speaking, he called it a “transitional house,” meaning it’s not traditional, not modern, and not a ranch.

Another unique feature of the home is that in the back and on one side, the home borders the community park. That means no development will take place directly behind it or on one side.

“When there are kids back there playing in the sunshine I always say it looks like a Norman Rockwell painting,” he said.

The home is served by Ocean Lakes Elementary, Corporate Landing Middle, and Ocean Lakes High School.
