The specific geography of Mount Vernon can be a little tricky. While it is considered to be one of the nine magisterial districts in Fairfax County, the US Census Bureau defines the neighborhood more narrowly, as coextensive with the 22309 zip code area of Alexandria. In the eyes of many, Mount Vernon is actually a larger area extending from Old Town to Fort Belvoir. Its watery boundary, commonly referred to as the Potomac Rover actually includes Dougue Creek to the southwest, Potomac Creek to the south and the more narrow Little Hunting Creek on the east. All this water makes for some great luxury waterfront homes for sale!
