Location and Overview: Stratford Terrace is conveniently situated in the Hickory area of Chesapeake, just off Mt. Pleasant Road near the Centerville Turnpike intersection. Boasting approximately 160 single-family homes, this community was established between 2002 and 2006, offering a mix of modern residences. Nearby neighborhoods include Ravenna and School House Crossing.

Property Snapshot: The median size of a home in Stratford Terrace is 2,903 square feet, featuring 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. With a median yard size of 0.35 acres, residents enjoy a balance of indoor and outdoor living. Families in this community are served by Butts Road Primary, Butts Road Intermediate, Hickory Middle, and Hickory High schools.

Recent Sales and Market Trends: Over the past year, the real estate market in Stratford Terrace has been limited. Despite a limited inventory, three homes were successfully sold, showcasing the neighborhood's desirability. Notably, 1507 Ashburn Court and 1516 Ashburn Court both sold for $10,000 over the asking price within a remarkably short timeframe, emphasizing the high demand for homes in this area.
