Bearings South Condos: Prices, Pictures, Facts and Map

Garden Style Condos for Sale at Old Town's Southside

Did you know that Nesbitt Realty will match any offer by any Realtor in Northern Virginia?

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

Nesbitt Realty sold another

For most people, the prospect of selling their own home can be positively daunting. First of all, there are usually plenty of things to do just to get it ready for the market. Besides the traditional clean-up, paint-up, fix-up chores that invariably wind up costing more than you planned, there are always the overriding concerns about how much the market will bear and how much you will eventually wind up selling it for.

Will you get your asking price, or will you have to drop your price to make the deal? After all, your home is a major investment, no doubt a rather large one, so when it comes to selling it you want to get your highest possible return. Yet in spite of everyone’s desire to get the top dollar for their property, most people are extremely unsure as to how to go about getting it.

Talk to a Nesbitt Realty agent and we’ll give you a market analysis of your property’s value as well as a report on trends in Northern Virginia real estate and real estate in your neighborhood.  We’re a local family-run business and we appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
