Where We Live: Large backyard, in-ground pool and an outdoor kitchen at this Beach home

VIRGINIA BEACH — In just about any city, especially a growing oceanside one like Virginia Beach, finding a home that offers acreage and privacy often isn’t easy. But the home at 2800 River Road in the city’s Forest Hills neighborhood in Great Neck offers plenty of both.

Situated on a one-plus acre lot, this 4,600 square foot home has not only six bedrooms, but a large backyard – perfect for raising those always energetic children.

“This home is very unique for Great Neck because there is no property with this much acreage and this much privacy,” said Anna Paduhovich, the listing agent and a Realtor with Rose and Womble Realty. The homes in that area, she added, are on lots that are more commonly on just two-tenths of an acre or so.

Tall trees surround the home, lending to the privacy and the country feel, as well as to increased opportunities for childhood adventures.

A fence encloses much of the yard, offering some added security for the backyard play area, where there’s also to be found every child’s best friend: an in-ground swimming pool.

“This is an amazing backyard pool you can enjoy all season long. Whether it’s relaxing with pool-side drinks, swim parties with the kids, or just doing laps … what an amazing venue,” she said.

In addition to the space and the swimming pool, the backyard has a play set for the kids, and features an outdoor kitchen with a sink and a grill and a refrigerator for the adults.

The property also has waterfront access to the Eastern Branch of the Lynnhaven River and Wolfsnare Creek, and a dock for water-based fun, such as jet skiing, kayaking, and paddleboarding.

“This is a very unique opportunity to own an acre of waterfront property in one of the best school districts in Virginia Beach,” Paduhovich added.

The home is served by John B. Dey Elementary, Great Neck Middle, and Frank W. Cox High School.
