Heron’s Point is adjacent to one of the most beautiful inland bodies of water in all of Hampton Roads, 512 acre Lake Meade. The lake is actually owned by the City of Portsmouth and used as a primary water supply which attests to its pristine condition. It serves as home or resting area for numerous local birds and migratory waterfowl. Fishing opportunities abound with several local species including striped bass, largemouth bass, bluegill and several others. Boating is permissible but restricted to ten horse power motors or less. Sailing, canoeing or kayaks are the preferred Lake Meade mode of transportation.
Heron’s Point is nestled within 100 acres of natural preserve. Specific areas have been set aside and will remain undisturbed into perpetuity allowing for shelter and shade to a variety of wildlife. Unlike many communities found in Hampton Roads, Heron’s Point has a rolling topography that affords elevated building sites resulting in dramatic views. All the shoreline along Lake Meade will remain in its natural state with minor clearing to enhance sight lines. The actual building sites are quite large. Typical lots in most Hampton Roads subdivisions are 7,500 to 10,000 square feet. Most lots in Heron’s Point exceed 17,000 square feet. Such large lots enhance privacy and provide plenty of room for pools, outdoor living areas and detached garages.
Heron’s Point enjoys an “in the country” feel that’s removed from the hustle and bustle of big city living yet provides a short commute to most of the major employment centers of Hampton Roads. At Heron’s Point you can expect a cleaner living experience with less noise pollution, less light pollution, less water pollution and yes, less air pollution.
