Southern Virginia Beach
Sandbridge Beach and Pungo
Spanning 5 miles of shoreline, Sandbridge offers all the seclusion of a beach hideaway just 15 miles south of Virginia Beach’s bustling Resort Area. Sandbridge welcomes you to relax, unwind, and explore its peaceful seaside community at your own pace. In addition to all the entertainment and relaxation of the Atlantic, those craving even more outdoor adventure can visit the marshes and open waters of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park for great kayaking, hiking, and fishing.
The name translated from Spanish to English means "lake" and "ocean". It is derived from its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Brinson's Inlet Lake (originally known as "Salt Pond" and later "Lake Tecumseh"), as well as from the neighboring community of Ocean Lakes. The street names within Lago Mar are also of Spanish origin with the notable exception of Atwoodtown, which is what the area was called prior to being renamed in the 1960s
Lago Mar is the last neighborhood before entering Sandbridge itself, making Lago Mar "The Gateway to Virginia's Outer Banks". This road is also part of Virginia Beach's "Green Line", which is its boundary for urban growth. Thus Lago Mar lies just where urban conveniences transition into the rural forests and farms of the south.
Pembroke Manor is a suburban neighborhood located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The community's name comes from Pembroke Manor, a plantation built in 1764. The house was donated by the Aragona family to the Princess Anne Historical Society, but currently is under private ownership and serves as Ivy League Academy, a private Christian school for children K4 through 5th grades. The structure itself was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and is one of the oldest and most significant structures in the City of Virginia Beach.
Pembroke Manor real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Pembroke Manor neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.
In Pembroke Manor, the current vacancy rate is 0.6%, which is a lower rate of vacancies than 96.5% of all neighborhoods in the U.S. This means that the housing supply in Pembroke Manor is very tight compared to the demand for property here.
