Alexandria is one of the most unique towns in all of America. Founded in 1749 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s served as home to American legends such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Robert E. Lee. Today, Alexandria receives international recognition for its architecture, award-winning restaurants, and eclectic shopping.
At the heart of Alexandria is Old Town. Located along the Potomac River, Old Town is famous for its concentration of historic buildings that provide a unique setting for a modern, urban lifestyle.
Alexandria living provides easy access to both DC and the Virginia suburbs. Five Metrorail stations can eliminate the need to own a vehicle for those commuting into DC. In addition, Alexandria’s Old Town Trolley runs down King Street through the backbone of Old Town. Visitors and residents alike take advantage of this free trolley service that runs between the King Street Metrorail station and the Potomac River waterfront.
Alexandria homes embody 18th and 19th century architecture as new construction in the area often seeks to emulate these older designs. Homes possess a wide range of prices depending on size and location. Many areas outside of Old Town offer great options for first time home buyers, while neighborhoods such as Del Rey have some of the most sought after homes in Northern Virginia.
