Del Ray in Alexandria features a luxurious boutique condominium built by neighborhood resident Brian Thomas. And with the help of local architect Gavier Nichols and landscape designer Linda Hostetler, The Mosby became a successful creation out of a simple single family house. The Mosby was actually an old single family house that was turned into a boarding house and then abandoned after a number of subsequent owners.
The Mosby was actually named after a 120lb Golden Retriever a popular neighborhood fixture and most of all, Brian Thomas’ faithful companion.
The Mosby consists of the 3 units in the main level and 1 unit – the Penthouse.
- 3 units on the main level

- Smallest unit is 1,550 square feet in floor space
- Large Pergola covered deck

Penthouse or the 4th Level:

- 2,300 sq feet in floor space

The original house was taken apart by hand and thus preserved the original hardwood flooring and cast iron claw foot tubs. The basement was dug out by hand as well. A formal garden also graces the landscaping of The Mosby Condominiums. With box woods, white hydrangeas and lovely white roses.
A flagstone walk along with stone pillars of the front of the building offers a warm welcome to owners and visitors. A large Japanese maple at the corner of Mt. Vernon and Alexandria Ave compliments the structure.
