Chesterfield County (Zone 52 & 54)
Located off of Winterpock Road in central Chesterfield County, Birkdale has roots that date back into the middle 1980’s. Built around the what is a fun and well conceived Birkdale Golf Course, the neighborhood has provided a home to many over its many decades as part of the Chesterfield landscape.
Birkdale was originally considered to be in a rather ‘far out’ location when first introduced but the unbelievable development momentum along Hull Street has brought services and amenities there and beyond. As with many developments brought out during the middle and later 1980’s, the recession of 1987-91 stunted its initial growth. With more grandiose plans int he beginning, Birkdale shifted gears and brought a slightly more affordable and wider reaching product to the market once the market began to recover. In doing so, created a successful run of sales well into the early 2000’s.
Housing styles would be considered mostly colonial or transitional with vinyl exteriors (with a few brick ones) on lot sizes from 1/4 to 1/3 acre. A central lake provides waterfront opportunities for some homeowners in the neighborhood.
The golf course is the centerpiece of the neighborhood and is one of several semi-private courses in Chesterfield County. The course would be considered to be somewhat short by modern day standards but tight fairways and elevation changes make it a shotmaker’s favorite.
