Where We Live: Charming cottage in historic Birdneck Point

VIRGINIA BEACH — The community surrounding the home at 832 Cardinal Road is rich in history.

The neighborhood known as Birdneck Point was originally owned by five families, who farmed the land and harvested fish and shellfish from Linkhorn Bay.

Since the 1920s, the area has been connected with the Cavalier Country Club. The stately homes that can now be seen near the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club originally began as elements of the Cavalier itself.

The cottages were gradually replaced with updated private homes, but 832 Cardinal Road is one of the few that remains in its original iteration.

At the end of a stone walkway near the Cavalier Golf Course sits a rose cottage, built in 1952.

The 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home is situated in the corner of a lovely one-third acre lot.

Although most indoor features of the home have been renovated and replaced, the original oak wood floors remain a striking feature. Another stand-out element is the updated master bath. It contains taupe stonework and a generous soaking tub.

The classic landscaping, tiered front porch, and large windows coalesce with the character of the neighboring homes and the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club. The front of the home offers pleasant views of the golf course.

The peaceful atmosphere of Birdneck Point maintains the original charm of the Cavalier community that began almost 100 years ago.

The home is a poignant and comfortable piece of history that can be enjoyed by someone new today. If you are interested in learning more or viewing this home, visit the Logan and Foster listing here

Local Realtor Karlene Cupp said, “The ideal buyer is someone who wants one-level living with the convenience of golf or a country club nearby. Even if they aren’t wild about golf, it offers a serene view, and quick access to I-264, the beach, shopping at Hilltop, and NAS Oceana. Membership in the Cavalier country club nearby is optional.”
