Fort Eustis VA real estate is now part of the Joint Base Langley- Fort Eustis VA, Fort Eustis VA is a 9000-acre Army facility located in enchanting Coastal Virginia. This historic Army installation is 3-miles north of Hampton on the Virginia Peninsula. The government first purchased this land in 1918 as part of the United States’ military build-up during World War I. In this area, the Army saw a diverse landscape, easy access to the James River and Chesapeake Bay, flat land, and the perfect opportunity for a training base. These same geographical characteristics are part of why the surrounding area, often referred to as the Hampton Roads region, have continued to thrive.
Unlike other joint bases formed by the Base Realignment and Closure directives issued by Congress in 2005, Fort Eustis VA and Langley Air Force Base are two physically distinct areas, separated by 17 miles. However, both bases are located within the region referred to as Hampton Roads, also the name for the surrounding body of water. The Hampton Roads metropolitan area is home to an incredible 1.7 million residents. With an extremely diverse population, Hampton Roads’ attractions and events include theme parks, recreation facilities, cultural centers, shopping malls, and more. The area is also home to a number of higher-learning institutions, including the College of William and Mary, Old Dominion University, Eastern Virginia Medical School, and Hampton University. With hundreds of miles of coastline, nautical activities are plentiful, including Naval history, boating, world-class fishing, or simply relaxing on a beautiful, sandy beach. As Hampton Roads is one of the few year-round ice-free harbors, these activities can be enjoyed year-round in Coastal Virginia’s mild climate.
