Briarwood - Bingham House,
Virginia Beach


This large Tudor Revival-style house was built in 1932 on an expansive 13-acre lot sloping down to Linkhorn Bay in the then newly-developed resort city of Virginia Beach.
   The house, located today on a 4-acre parcel, was designed by notable regional architect Wickham C. Taylor, who created many prominent Tidewater homes. The interior features historic wood flooring and extensive original stained paneling and rough hewn timbers.
   Briarwood was a summer home for realtor James Bingham and his wife, Frances, and their family. It is the best example of the Tudor Revival style remaining in the city today.
