Alexandria Features & Amenities
Like any port city, the majority of Alexandria's noteworthy sites and establishments can be found along the water. The Old Town neighborhood is home to Stabler-Leadbeater Apothecary Shop, Duvall’s Tavern, The Lyceum, George Washington’s House, and Christ Episcopal Church. Jones Point Park and Torpedo Factory Art Center offer excellent sensory stimulation. Old Town has no shortage of great eateries, bars, and live entertainment.
Throughout the rest of Alexandria, dining and shopping possibilities abound as well as other points of interest including Fort Ward Park, the Virginia Theological Seminary, and Cameron Run Regional Park.
Alexandria Property Values
Alexandria is made up of a network of distinct, yet collectively cohesive neighborhoods. In younger neighborhoods like Carlyle, condominiums are appropriately popular, meanwhile Old Town, with its riverfront location, sturdy architecture, and rich history, is home to some of the most expensive real estate in Northern Virginia: chiefly brick and frame rowhouses.
Throughout the city beautiful detached homes can be found in myriad styles including colonials, foursquares, Queen Annes, Tudor revivals, bungalows, ramblers, and Cape Cods.
Named for John Alexander, the Scotsman that finally took possession of the land, Alexandria is a city of rich American history. Dating back to 1654, the area now known as Old Town was hugely important during the colonial period as well as the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Prior to Alexandria’s incorporation, Hugh West’s tobacco warehouse on the Potomac had been established as the region’s main site for tobacco inspection, requiring all nearby shipments to pass through, and contributing to Alexandria’s long-lasting prominence as a port city. Alexandria is a city graced by the residence of many notable Americans, not the least of which is Commander George Washington who kept a townhouse on Cameron St.
