Bearings South Condos: Prices, Pictures, Facts and Map

Garden Style Condos for Sale at Old Town's Southside

If you’d prefer to work with a family-run business, contact Nesbitt Realty.

Built in 1941 as garden-style apartments and originally called Boulevard of Old Town apartments, these seven buildings were converted into a condominium community in 2006. The 158 units combine solid, red-brick construction with contemporary finishes such as granite countertops, Brazilian hardwood floors, crown molding, and stainless-steel kitchen appliances.

Studios, 1 bedroom, 2-bedroom and loft units are available, with both traditional and open floor plans. The Bearings condos feature galley kitchens, walk-in closets and ceiling fans supplemented by individual air-conditioning units.

Located in the 800 block of South Washington Street, the Bearings opens to the brick sidewalks and shade trees of Old Town, the oldest part of Alexandria — originally laid out in 1749 — and a nationally designated historic district. Immediately to the south is St. Mary’s
Catholic Church Cemetery, the oldest public Catholic cemetery in Virginia and the oldest active cemetery in all of Alexandria.

Six blocks east is the Potomac River—a pleasant stroll for Bearings residents and their dogs. Nearby are parks, the gourmet grocer Balducci’s and several restaurants. Cyclists have easy access to the bicycle path to Mount Vernon.

The Bearings condominium association provides:

  • Maintenance of a common laundry room
  • Maintenance of the grounds
  • Maintenance of the exteriors
  • Salaries of management staff
  • A master insurance policy
  • A reserve fund
  • Snow removal
  • Trash removal

Each condo is assigned a space in the complex parking lot, and on-street parking is available as well

    Leasing a rental

    Realtor Ron Ginyard
    Ronald R Ginyard Sr. is a Certified Distressed Property Expert.

    Leasing a rental is a very serious decision which warrants a great deal of attention before a final decision is made. When choosing a rental property, renters in Northern Virginia have a variety of factors to consider including, but not limited to, price, size, location, amenities, length of stay, proximity to Metro, type of home (condo, townhouse, single-family, etc.).

    A smarter renter will consider all of their options before making a decision to ensure they are making the best possible decision. But the number of choices can be overwhelming. It’s hard to know that you’re not missing something. A rental agent can help you make sense of your options. Best of all a rental agent costs the renter nothing.

  • More about selling

    “Using a real estate agent is a very good idea,” says the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “All the details involved in home buying [and selling], particularly the financial ones, can be mind-boggling. A good professional can guide you through the entire process and make the experience much easier.”

    What’s the Difference Between a Real Estate Agent and a Realtor?

    Realtor Logo
    National Association of Realtors

    More than two million people have earned real estate licenses but only a small percentage of these are Realtors. Realtors are members in good standing of the National Association of Realtors, their state association of Realtors and a local real estate board. Realtors are held to high standards of ethical behavior and must undergo continuing education annually to remain accredited.

    All agents of Nesbitt Realty are Realtors!

    What Does a Realtor Do?

    Realtors are required by law to:

    • perform necessary and customary acts to assist in the purchase or sale of real estate.
    • perform these acts in good faith and with reasonable care.
    • properly account for money or other property placed in his or her care.
    • disclose “adverse material facts” which are, or should be, within the agent’s knowledge.
    MLS
    The MLS is a database of homes listed for sale.

    A Nesbitt Realty Realtor will be well acquainted with the important things buyers want to know about your property’s neighborhood. When it comes to selling your home, a Realtor will save you time and aggravation. We will get your home on the market instantly with the MLS. When an offer comes in on your property, our Realtor will help structure the deal to maximize your proceeds. He or she will guide you through the mounds of paperwork.

    Nesbitt Realty pays for all advertising, schedules all open houses and makes sure potential buyers are qualified. The money they can save you is often more than the cost of our commissions.
