Woodhurst - Virginia Beach
Located in the Great Neck area of Virginia Beach, Woodhurst is one of the most unique neighborhoods around. Built in the 1950's, this neighborhood is the epitome of mid-century modern. With their low angle roof lines and their exposed wood ceilings, these homes are a glimpse into the world of the mid-century modern ranches that were so popular during that era. As the legend goes.... The architect that designed these homes was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. As part of a class project the architect designed these homes. The design was the property of Frank Lloyd Wright though and he sold the plans to builders around the country. Whether that is true or not has yet to be proven but it makes for a good story that brings it back to the most iconic mid-century modern architect of his time. His homes span across the globe and are truly pieces of art.
