WELCOME TO ALEXANDRIA

Charming city that is brimming with history & located along the Potomac River

Just south of Arlington is the historic, upscale city of Alexandria. Nestled south of Washington D.C., and along Interstate 495, residents can quickly travel to a number of top destinations by vehicle. The city has a steadily increasing population of 157,613. The area is widely known for its beautifully preserved collection of buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Residential properties complement the historical appearance of this town. Inland, discover tranquil neighborhoods that are full of lush, natural scenery. Even in suburban Alexandria, many of the homes are designed with Colonial-style architecture. Toward the river, the entire vibe of the city changes. While residents here also enjoy the same older styles of architecture, many of these buildings were actually constructed 100+ years ago.
