VIRGINIA BEACH — Hilltop may be the topographical peak of this city, but it is also the cultural center.
Just minutes from the Oceanfront, Hilltop is where locals come to shop, eat, and have their hair styled. Since the 1940s, neighborhoods and businesses have migrated to this hub.
The home at 1437 Laurel View Drive sprawls near the water just past Hilltop. Perched by an offshoot of Linkhorn Bay, this stylish slate gray home possesses all of the amenities one would expect to find in a Hilltop area home.
The face of the home features gabled windows and classic, symmetrical landscaping. The top profile is made unique by its double chimneys and central weather vane. The backyard leads right to the water via it’s sloping yard, which has an in-ground pool and jet-ski docks.
The first level of the home has an open concept entertaining space, and is wired for audio throughout. The modern kitchen, with a bright white backsplash and crisp black countertops, is adjacent to a formal dining room.
A library space at the foot of the stairs features a wall of white built-ins, and is flooded with natural light from the French doors leading to the back deck.
The master bedroom is also on the first level, and has a private entrance to the outdoor space. In the spa-like master bath is fitted with marble floors and countertops, a soaking tub, a shower, and custom cabinetry.
On the second level is a TV room, four bedrooms, and three bathrooms.
The stand-out feature of this home is its beautiful guest cottage.
Ideal for extended family or guests, the cottage has all the high-end features of the main house. Palladian windows, beaded wainscoting, and plenty of natural light make this space elegant and comfortable.
Realtor Ann Davis said of the home, “This is a great house for an active family offering lots of space for entertaining, inside and out…a casual yet elegant home.”
