There are limitless options to customize this creative, flexible and expansive space… indoors and outdoors, rain or shine, warm or chilly.
Located on the Virginia Beach/Norfolk border, this 4,000sf Mid-Century Modern estate was built and designed for entertaining.

Please contact for TERMS and further details. It would be my pleasure to show you the space. Thank you!
