March 29, 2019 |  

Beach living in the heart of Hampton Roads’ hottest real estate markets has become a rare commodity for those seeking to purchase a new, custom townhome in a dynamic market.  That all changes on April 11th, 2019, when EDC Homes breaks ground on a new luxury townhome development located in the East Beach section of Norfolk’s Ocean View community.  This most sought-after beachside residential address in Hampton Roads will feature a mix a of opulent townhomes and retail space.

The Tern, named not only for the curved approach on Shore Drive but also for the indigenous seabird, will feature 96 luxury townhomes with breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay.   There are three models to choose from, each includes luxurious spa-like bath retreats, gourmet kitchens, open living spaces throughout, and all directly across the street from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

  • The Compass Model (1,500 sqft) is a three-story model consisting of two master suites, two and a half bathrooms, and an oversized attached garage.
  • The Waypoint Model (2,039 sqft) is a three-story model with three master suites, two and a half bathrooms, and an oversized garage.
  • The Lighthouse Model (2,600 sqft) is a four-story model with three master suites, three and half bathrooms, and two car garages, all with magnificent views of the Chesapeake Bay.  This model also features an in-home private elevator.

“The Tern unit layout optimizes the water views of the Chesapeake Bay for each resident,” said Nick Jacovides, president of EDC Homes.  “Homeowners will have the best of both worlds and will enjoy direct access to the pristine beaches of the Chesapeake Bay while enjoying a lifestyle convenient to dining, shopping, and entertainment.”

The Tern is scheduled to deliver its first models by Fall 2019.
