The Newport Crescent Home
6036 Newport Crescent
Norfolk, VA 23505
Listing Agent: April Partida
This custom mid-century home was designed in 1955 by Paul D. Woodward, AIA for Mr. and Mrs. Weisberg. The driving concept of the home's interior design was to create a breezeway leading to a private courtyard entry. The placement on the large riverfront lot allowed for bright and dramatic southern exposures, cross breezes and perfect water views. A reserved and subtle facade faces the street while the home's dramatic exposure is reserved until you pass through the breezeway.
Features And Amenities
This riverfront lot provides a private and peaceful place to live yet minutes from conveniences, retail, and restaurants. The shoreline includes an all new bulkhead, a boat lift with remote control and finger pier, a jet dock for your jet skis, and a floating dock for small watercraft with electric and fresh water service. This is the perfect mid-century paradise to enjoy watersports, sunsets, and dramatic indoor-outdoor living.
Inside, this home features classic mid-century architectural design throughout. The updated, gourmet kitchen includes custom cherry cabinets, Silestone counters, a Walker Zanger backsplash, Brazilian heated slate floors and a Bertazzoni gas range. All of the modern and luxurious interior upgrades to this home honor the original mid-century architectural heritage and design. The huge great room is designed to host large social gatherings with many open spaces for relaxing and fluid-single story entertaining. The original terrazzo "rug" under the dining table still remains today. The home has 5 bedrooms, two of which are master suites, one suite is located upstairs and offers breathtaking water views while the other master suite located on the first floor.
The house is built to last with a minimum of maintenance on a slab foundation, with a steel frame, and the exterior is concrete stucco and double brick masonry. The home was built to "state of the art" at the time standards, including one of the early central heating and cooling systems, grounded electrical and energy-efficient double-paned glass. Today, due to meticulous maintenance and stewardship this home is in outstanding condition and is still state of the art. A rare mid-century find in the heart of Norfolk's sought after riverpoint neighborhood.
