Make sure you consider where the home is located when looking at Waterfront Homes in Little Neck. As a rule of thumb when it comes to the location of a Waterfront Home in Little Neck, the further north you go on the Little Neck peninsula, the deeper the water you’ll find and some areas with a sand bottom. With the further south you go, the river has experienced years of silting in from erosion and it’s more shallow with a mud bottom. Also when looking for a Waterfront Home in Little Neck you’ll want to consider the weather patterns for our area! Properties on the river facing Northwest to Northeast in Little Neck are much more exposed to our winter storms than other properties. During a “Nor Easter” or frequent Hurricane it is not uncommon for a storm to bring heavy winds and to push lots of water up the river and cause some flooding. Having lived in Virginia Beach our entire life’s we can tell you that most flooding is minimal in Little Neck because the Little Neck peninsula has a higher elevation above sea level than many areas in Virginia Beach. But most homes exposed to the strong winds from these storms will take a beating!
Consider the History
Consider the History of the Lynnhaven! What makes Little Neck attractive for purchasers is that the Little Neck peninsula is centrally located in Virginia Beach. Being that the Little Neck peninsula basically splits the Lynnhaven River into two branches, the Eastern Branch and Western Branch, it’s location creates numerous waterfront properties. Having been settled first in the 1600’s, the Lynnhaven River had been widely known for it’s seafood. Did you know that Lynnhaven oysters were a prized delicacy in England for many years when the new world was first being settled?
