Newport News Real Estate

Located along the banks of the James River and often referred to as the anchor of the Peninsula, Newport News is a city of growth where great things are happening. Newport News is commonly thought of as the home of Newport News Shipbuilding, one of the nation’s largest shipbuilding facilities.

After many years of careful and thoughtful development, Newport News can now tout a diverse economic makeup. This city, founded in 1896, is home for many successful companies such as Ferguson Enterprises, Riverside Health System, Jefferson Labs, Langley Federal Credit Union, W.M. Jordan, and beautiful Christopher Newport University.

Newport News is also known for its connection to the arts and wildlife, with many area attractions such as the Peninsula Center for the Fine Arts, the Mariner’s Museum, the Virginia Living Museum and the Peninsula SPCA & Petting Zoo.

Despite its relatively ‘young’ age, Newport News also has sites with great historical offerings such as Endview Plantation, Lee Hall, and the US Army Transportation museum at nearby Ft. Eustis.

At a population of just over 180,000, Newport News has always had an eye for development, boasting the first government subsidized ‘planned community’ in the nation, Hilton Village, which was started in 1918. Like much of the city, this neighborhood is host to great restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.

Recent developments like Port Warwick, City Center at Oyster Point, Stoney Run, and the Patrick Henry area offer fresh mixed-use development amenities and conveniences.
