In case you are new to old town, it is a vibrant community that prides itself on its historic architecture, great restaurants, boutiques, art and antique galleries. Today, one popular tourist guide has this to say: “older than Washington dc itself, Alexandria, Virginia, is a historic city that melds the charm of yesteryear with attractions desired most by visitors today, including top restaurants, chic boutiques, interesting art galleries, lively bars, and notable sights” (moon travel guide, 2012). At least 75% of Alexandria's stores, restaurants and spas are locally owned and can't be found anywhere else.

Why the Owner Chose Alexandria: I love all that Alexandria has to offer. I especially love The George Washington Memorial Pkwy, the bike trails, Old Town, and it's close proximity to Wash., DC. It's 1 1/2 hours from the mountains and 2 hours from the beach. This is truly a beautiful property, conveniently located just outside of Old Town Alexandria, 1 1/2 miles to the beltway, and a 20 minute drive to DC. The shopping, dining, sightseeing and entertainment that the DC area has to offer is hard to beat. This home offers you the peace and tranquility of the suburbs to come home to after a day in the busy city. It's truly a little piece of heaven to me, very spacious yet very cozy and comfortable.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Full kitchen, backyard w/flagstone patio & gas grill. Great place to relax and unwind.
