Old Town Alexandria Homes For Sale
Old Town Alexandria is one of Virginia’s truly historic places and indeed, holds an important place in our nation’s history. Founded in 1749, it is the historical seat of the larger City of Alexandria itself. Located along the Potomac River, the fledgling town played a pivotal role in the emerging tobacco trade and was later caught up in the conflict of the Civil War, as the longest occupied territory by the Confederacy. Today, this neighborhood combines the charm of a bygone era with an eclectic modern energy. Read more about Old Town Alexandria homes for sale.

More About Old Town Alexandria Homes For Sale
Homes for sale in Old Town Alexandria often reflect the neighborhood’s history. An 1820 Colonial row house recently went on the market for $649,200, featuring large-plank hardwood floors that are so rarely seen these days and an updated kitchen that still has the old brick floor. On a more contemporary scale, a new 60-unit luxury condo development named the Oronoco recently completed construction along the waterfront. This adaptive re-use of an old office building will offer single-floor units with elevated terraces and balconies and will start at $900 thousand for two-bedroom units.
From townhomes to condos, developers in Old Town Alexandria are making use of existing properties such as former public housing units and commercial structures. EYA is one of the most prolific developers incorporating new and old. Mindful that the neighborhood’s appeal is integrally linked with its roots, new housing melds traditional elements such as brick exteriors and vintage architectural styles with modern elements. As for existing single-family homes, it is common to see Colonials, Victorians, original Sears Craftsman bungalows and of course, the signature staple, the tall and boxy Federal-style homes.
