Pine Grove Properties, L.C.
Breckinridge is owned by members of the Wood family of Virginia Beach. Over the last four decades, the family has been responsible for a large portion of development in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake, having founded William E. Wood in 1972 and eventually making it the number one real estate company in the region. The family also developed numerous commercial and residential sites over this period, and is still actively engaged in the management of the William E. Wood and William B. Wood companies.
Breckinridge is a long-standing Wood family name. The choice to name the property as such is a tribute to the legacy of former family members, including William Breckinridge (“Breck”) Wood, who had initially undertaken the development of the property years before passing in 2006. The site plan, architectural guidelines, and residential product mix have been set to the high standards that we know Breck would have wanted to see at Breckinridge.
