Most Alanton homes for sale were built from 1960-79, when people began moving to the Great Neck corridor and onto the land once owned by (and named for) architect Alan McCullough Jr, whose gorgeous, regional-interpretations of modernist buildings can be found across Richmond and Norfolk. Today, homes in Alanton have been updated to include the latest features while the same characteristic regionalism—colonial brick, buff-colored mortar—that fascinated McCullough is reflected in the exterior decor.

Living in Virginia Beach
Alanton residents have long cultivated a great sense of community along Linkhorn Bay. On hot days, local kids can be found splashing around the pool at the Alanton-Baycliff Recreation Center while parents prepare the grill for hotdogs. Alanton is just a short drive—or bike ride—to the popular Hampton Roads hotspot of Chic's Beach, a local enclave that offers peace and quiet, away from the tourists who crowd other beaches in the area. Nearby, First Landing State Park (formerly Seashore State Park) is famous as the spot where the Virginia Company first landed before establishing Jamestown. Today, though, it's a popular spot for camping, fishing, and swimming, and it offers almost 20 miles of trails for hikers and bikers to get fit.
In addition to natural wonders, your family will benefit from the close proximity to a number of excellent public schools, including Alanton Elementary, Lynnhaven Middle School, and First Colonial High School. Alton is also near to Great Neck Village Shopping Center and The Shops at Hilltop, both of which offer a host of convenient stores and restaurants, from Trader Joe's and Walmart to Dunkin' Donuts and Coastal Grill. While you'll have to travel farther afield to get some serious shopping done, all of your daily conveniences are at your doorstep.
