VIRGINIA BEACH — There’s a saying in real estate that goes something like this: Location, location, location. And that’s a perfect three-word description of what the property at 1501 Quail Cove Road in Virginia Beach has in abundance.

Sitting squarely at the end of Quail Cove Road it’s surrounded on three sides by Linkhorn Bay.

“They’re not making any more waterfront land,” said Deborah Lesyshyn, the listing agent and a realtor with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services. “And nowadays when a buyer wants to live on the water they often, but not always, have to find a home that can be torn down and a new, more modern home put in its place. We have a lot of water in the Hampton Roads area but it’s rare to find just an unobstructed, panoramic view of the water.”

Windows on three sides of the home look out onto the bay, as does the home’s front porch and small second-floor balcony. The lot itself is also fairly large and there’s plenty of flat grassy space for sunbathing or for outdoor activities right beside the water.

In addition to the amazing views, the location also allows direct access to the water.

“The unobstructed views should be enough for anyone to enjoy, but the home also offers the ability to do water sports, skiing, and kayaking,” said Lesyshyn. “Or you can boat over to Chic’s or Dockside for a great sunset dinner; have breakfast from your home and watch the amazing sunrise; have afternoon lawn parties on the water; and watch the enormous amount of wildlife from your porch or balcony.”

Another plus of the property, said Lesyshyn, is that flood insurance is not currently required. Additionally, the garage was designed to be large enough for a large motorhome.

Built in 1960, the home has four bedrooms and three baths, and is served by Alanton Elementary, Lynnhaven Middle, and Colonial High School.
