Founded in 1749, Alexandria VA is a city with a fascinating history and exciting present. And since it has been around for a long time, as you can imagine, there is not a lot of undeveloped land in this city, especially since so many of the historic homes have been beautifully preserved. Land is at a premium in this Potomac River waterfront city that is just minutes from Washington, D.C. and finding new construction here has been generally limited to a few condos here and there or townhouse communities that, while convenient to Old Town, are still considered “on the outskirts” of the city.
That’s why it is so exciting to find new construction townhouses in the heart of Old Town, just 3 blocks from King Street, which is lined with restaurants and shops, approximately 9 blocks from the King Street Metro, the Amtak station and 9 blocks from the waterfront. It’s hard to get a better, more convenient location than this.
Our buyer clients are under contract for one of these brand new townhouses, which is scheduled to close in the spring. By getting under contract so early, they have had the opportunity to pretty much customize their townhouse, giving them the advantages of buying a custom built home without many of the hassles. They will be getting a LEED certified home with hardwood floors, solid core wood doors, a thermador kitchen, a fireplace, a patio and off-street parking for two cars. Having off street parking in Old Town is amazing, in and of itself. They even got in early enough to make a few changes to the layout in order to accommodate some of their hobbies and decorating preferences. Does it get much better than that?
With 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms and more than 2,500 square feet on 3 levels, this brand new Old Town Alexandria home delivers today’s popular energy-efficient features and high end finishes with the convenience and desirability of its location in a thriving housing market.
