Alexandria Knolls West Condominiums - Alexandria, VA

The Landmark/Van Dorn neighborhood is one of Alexandria, Virginia’s most rapidly changing areas. But while new commercial buildings are going up left and right, there are still reminders of previous transformative eras, including a rash of development that occurred during the 1970s. One such example is Alexandria Knolls West—a luxury high-rise condominium tower surrounded by mature trees and designed in the International contemporary style.

Located at 6101 Edsall Road in the 22304 zip code area, Alexandria Knolls West is ideally located for commuters, between the I-395 to the north and the Capital Beltway to the south. There are 190 residences in the building with a variety of floor plans. While there are some studio units, the vast majority of residences here are one and two-bedroom models, many of which also have dens. The designs are quite spacious, typically ranging from 1012 to 1874 square feet. Many of the one-bedroom models have 1.5 or two baths, while the two-bedroom plans have as many as 2.5 baths.

Condos for sale at Alexandria Knolls West are quite affordable given the size and location, with recent list prices between the high $100s and mid-$300s. These roomy units have hardwood floors, eat-in kitchens and outrageously long balconies with multiple entry points. Many of the condos have fireplaces, and a great many also have wet bars. Remember, this high-rise tower was built in the mid-1970s—a time of glittering disco balls and luxury excesses.
