Spotlight On The Larchmont Neighborhood In Norfolk!

Street Scene from Larchmont Nieghborhood in Norfolk
Larchmont Nieghborhood in Norfolk

Larchmont
is a extra beautiful neighborhood which is very ODU-centric. The neighborhood starts on the North side of Old Dominion University and continues North between the Lafayette River and Hampton Blvd. The north end is capped by a body of water called Edgewater Haven which flows into the Lafayette River. Your fastest access to the interstate will be up Hampton Blvd to Terminal Blvd (turn right) which will take you to Interstate 564. About a city block away is Interstate 64 which leads North to Hampton or South to Chesapeake. If you are looking for a nice place to pull your boat up to, you are in luck! There are plenty of homes here on navigable water with a dock!

ClickSeeButton.pngBluestone Playground is on the South end. It’s a nice playground right next to Foreman Field. There’s plenty of room for running.
Slightly North of there is the imaginatively named Brick Field. It is a field surrounded by brick. There’s not much more there and it’s good for Frisbee throwing and similar activities. Further North is Virginia Park. It is wooded and has a bench and tended grass. Far to the North is Myrtle Park. Myrtle park has a nice small track to walk around. The track has a nice bridge over the South end of Edgewater Haven. So it has an excellent, relaxing beautiful view!ForemanField01.jpg
You’re in luck for dining! D’Egg is a treat! They serve excellent breakfast dishes from morning time to early afternoon. And nearby is Taste @ Norfolk, a chain cafe featuring gourmet sandwiches and salads. ODU, of course, attracts a bunch of businesses that you will be quite close to. There is Subway, Miller’s Neighborhood Market, which sells gas too, Gray’s Pharmacy, Del Vecchios Pizza, No. 7 Chinese Fast Food, Taco Bell, Duncan Donuts, and CVS. LarchmontWater01.jpgBe sure to check out Westside Produce and Provisions on Colley Ave. There are usually several food establishments on Colley that tend to change hands over time, so look to see what is there. And as usual, there are at least 3 or 4 7-Elevens nearby.

Tidewater Gymnastics Academy is across Hampton Blvd and will provide your kids with various health-activity instruction. A little bit South of there is CrossFit 757 which is obviously a crossfit gym.

Schools serving this neighborhood are Larchmont Elementary School, Blair Middle School and Maury High School!

ODU01.jpgAt the time of this article, the median home in Larchmont is around $430,000, with the low end coming in around $170,000 and the high end coming in at around $1,450,000. That’s typical Norfolk with a wide variety of values. Average days on market for homes here in the last year was 70 which is healthy. Homes here wound up selling for 97% of the listing price, which is typical. Currently, there’s actually a home here for sale that was built in 1783. There are also several new construction homes available. A huge variety in year-built is another typical aspect of Norfolk neighborhoods.

I would love to show you more about this neighborhood! I can get you in to see any of the homes for sale here. I can call the listing agent and schedule a showing for you. And I can help you negotiate your price and terms! If you would like more information, please fill out the form on the right and let’s get started!
