Directions: We live in the Hickory section of Chesapeake near the NC border on the way to Nags Head.
From 64 take the 168 bypass south towards Nags Head. You go over the Intracoastal Waterway. Keep going south. You go past the Hanbury Road overpass bridge on 168 bypass and continue south for about 1/4 mile. Take the very next exit (8A) which is the Hill Crest Parkway going west.
This parkway ends in construction after about 1/8th mile and you must take a left turn. There will be a man made lake (sand pit) on your right. Follow this road till it dead ends at the only stop sign and turn left (Saint Brides Rd). Go down Saint Brides Rd till it dead ends (about 200') at Sign Pine Rd.
Turn Right onto Sign Pine Rd. Take Sine Pine Rd west till it dead ends at a stop sign at Benefit Rd.
Turn right onto Benefit Rd. You will immediately pass over a small creek bridge, pass by Saint Brides Rd again, pass by Middle Ridge Dr on the left and take a left on the next road to the left (Taft Rd).
Take Taft Rd south about a mile. This road will make a small "S" curve (go slow!) then it will make a 90° left turn after about 1/8th mile. Immediately after the 90° left turn (about 200'), take a right turn into Oak Ridge Drive.
Take the first left off Oak Ridge Dr on to Sherwood Dr. Take a right on to Barbara Court.
Our house is on the right at the intersection of Sherwood Dr and Barbara Court. Look for my Suburban in the driveway. Park on the street or in my driveway. If you get lost, just call.
Alternate directions: For those coming from the beach, you might want to take Centerville Turnpike south to where it dead ends into old 168 (Battlefield Blvd). Turn left on Battlefield Blvd and immediately turn right after "Little Earls" store on to Benefit Rd.
Follow the directions above on Benefit Rd after passing Sign Pine Rd above. Good luck.
