Briarwood is a large Tudor Revival-style house built in 1932 in the then newly-developed resort city of Virginia Beach. Briarwood was designed by notable regional architect Wickham C. Taylor, who created many prominent Tidewater homes. The house was built as a summer home for realtor James Bingham and his wife and family and is the best example of the Tudor Revival style remaining in the city.
