Featured Community: Courthouse Estates
If you are considering a move or relocation to Hampton Roads or the Virginia Beach area, we encourage you to look at the popular community of Courthouse Estates. This unique community sits just south of downtown and south of the Virginia Beach National Golf Club between N. Landing Rd. and Indian River Rd. It's a unique community that has access from both directions but is primarily a non-through street community, which means that the only traffic on the roads is likely to be locals.
The layout is also unique in that the main road of Currituck Dr completely circles the community with offshoot cul-de-sacs and smaller communities outlying in a shamrock type of pattern, yet with many more than simply three or four enclaves. In between these neighborhoods are small, narrow, rectangular shape man-made lakes or ponds creating a few waterfront properties throughout the community. Although they are not large, they are perfect for simply throwing a canoe or small rowboat in the water and paddling your way from one into the other.
