Located on the west bank of the Potomac River just six miles south of Washington, D.C. and nine miles north of Mount Vernon lies the beautiful quaint colonial city of Alexandria, the fifth-leading city for doing business in the United States. Whether relocating your business or your family, you'll find Alexandria to be a lively, historic waterfront community with a strong economy, a wealth of cultural activities, excellent public schools and colonial charm. Ladies Home Journal named Alexandria the “Best City for Women” because of its low crime rate, pleasant lifestyle, great schools, plentiful job opportunities, and quality health- and child-care resources.
Alexandria is rich both in history and culture, offering a variety of things to do from visiting George Washington's home to dining on the lovely Potomac River. The Colonial charm of 18th and 19th century America is brought to life by the restored homes and shops throughout the city. Visitors can dine in Colonial taverns, wander through the cobblestone streets, shop in the unique specialty shops of Old Town, visit the city's historic sites and homes, relax in a park overlooking the scenic waterfront or take a boat ride along the Potomac River. Today, Alexandria is home to approximately 150,000 residents and the real estate market offers a mix of traditional and historic homes and newer contemporary models.
The Alexandria real estate market consists of traditional-style condominiums and single-family homes. Prices for condominiums and townhouses in Alexandria start at $90,000 in charming neighborhoods such as Saxony Square, Heritage Knoll and Clusters at Woodlawn, and exceed $5 million for larger models in the communities of Old Town, Harborside and Ford's Landing. Many of these Alexandria, VA properties have city and water views. Alexandria homes start at $200,000 in communities such as Hillwood and Huntington, many with recreation rooms and skylights. Prices range up to $6 million for larger, newer waterfront estates including expansive gardens and landscaping, beautiful views, swimming pools and colonial architecture.
