Brentwood in Deep Creek

Located in the Deep Creek section of Chesapeake, Brentwood is just south of the Portsmouth border -meaning Brentwood is near the local shipyards, as well as a short distance to local military bases.

Brentwood boasts surprisingly affordable homes averaging 1500 square feet of living space. Each home is unique, and the majority of the lovely Brentwood homes are bungalow style brick and vinyl homes.

Brentwood is the perfect community for those just starting out on their own as first time home buyers. It is also a great community for investors to update and resell a home. Although, Buyers, many of the homes in Brentwood have already been updated and renovated. So, from the ideal granite and tiled home with hardwood floors to the fixer-upper, you can find it all in Brentwood.

Many Brentwood homes host lovely fireplaces, ceiling fans, attics with pull-down stairs, master suites, and large spacious back yards. Nice porches for a relaxing break in the rocking chair adorn many of these homes. Built in living room cabinetry is also a find in Brentwood. -And many of the homes have fenced in yards to keep your pets and children safely in your yard where you can keep an eye on them.

The men in your family will surely enjoy a detached garage as a “man cave” or place to work on cars, hang out with friends, store lawn equipment, or make into a workshop. Many Brentwood homes have detached garages, and even if the one you choose does not, the yards are spacious and there is plenty of room to build your own garage and have it designed the way you would like it to be.

Several homes of Brentwood are located on or near the water with bulkheads and small walking piers to Julian’s Creek. Just off of St. Julien’s Road (yes, spelled differently than the creek) is St. Julien’s Creek Annex area. St. Julien’s Creek Annex area is a naval support operation that provides offices, light industrial shops, and storage for local naval bases. Its primary job is to provide a radar testing range and storage for Norfolk Naval Base.

The St. Julien’s Creek Annex began operations in 1849 as an ordnance and material storage facility. In 1898, the facility was equipped for assembling ammunition, and until 1970, supplied ammunition to the fleet in addition to loading, assembling, issuing, and receiving naval gun ammunition, and conducting experimental and test loading for new ammunition.

Around 1970, St. Julien’s Creek was made into an annex for the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station, but that didn’t last long. Around 1997, the annex was given to Norfolk Naval Shipyard, and in 1995 to the Naval Base.

Located in the eastern portion of the Brentwood Community is Brentwood Park maintained by Chesapeake Parks and Recreation. The City of Chesapeake has an advisory board to direct the operation of local parks, and a grounds maintenance crew which takes care of the maintenance and beauty of each of the parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields.

Mature trees located on nearly every property in Brentwood Park are home to song birds and squirrels. So, if you are looking to downsize or to be a first time buyer, picture yourself on a spacious front porch of your new home listening to the song birds and watching the squirrels scampering around in the trees! What a relaxing way to spend an evening.
