About Alexandria VA

George Washington Masonic Temple

Alexandria is a highly livable city with enviable amenities, culture and attractions. The Commonwealth of Virginia considers Alexandria an "independent city" which means that Alexandria is not in any county. However, parts of Northern Virginia have an Alexandria postal address, but are actually in Fairfax County. All this can be confusing for newcomers to the area, but we try to simplify this in our guide by organizing things so they make sense for the home buyer. You won't have to be a Virginia jurisdictional authority to find the home you want to buy, but start here for a primer on Alexandria. According to US Census Data, as of 2010 Alexandria had a population, the City of Alexandria had a total population of 139,966. Alexandria is one of the largest independent cities in Virginia and is home to a variety of neighborhoods and communities.

Arlandria

At the boundary of Arlington and Alexandria

overlooking Four Mile Run

This aerial picture shows older development, new development, high-rises and garden-styles all in close proximity to Four Mile Run. Four Mile Run separates Alexandria from Arlington and is the defining geographic feature of Arlandria.

Arlandria straddles the border between Arlington and Alexandria VA.

Much of Arlandria was developed between 1940 and 1980, although some homes and structures are newer or older than this. This area was originally a neighborhood who residents worked in the industrial areas near Potomac Yards train center and nearby industries in Old Town and Crystal City.

More about Arlandria

Over the years, the economy of the National Capital Region changed and most of the heavy and even most of the light industrial companies moved elsewhere. What remained became commercial centers, both retail and office, and the Arlandria neighborhood has changed as well.

Where residents in the old days might have turned wrenches at the Torpedo Factory or managed boxcar traffic at Potomac Yards, today's residents are much more likely to be technology consultants or legislative aids. The sturdy old brick duplexes and garden-style condos are still here, but most of these homes have had significant updates, improvements and renovations. In addition, in-fill development, knock-downs and new condos have filled out most of the remaining real estate in Arlandria.

Arlandia is just north of Del Ray at terminus of Mount Vernon Avenue. Some residents also call this neighborhood Chirilagua. Arlandia has many small shops and restaurants.

Old Town

late winter in Old Town

Old Town is full of shops, restaurants and attractions.

Many people feel that Old Town is the heart of Alexandria VA.

As the name implies, Old Town is the oldest part of Alexandria, a port in colonial times. Historic Old Town Alexandria is found along the Potomac, just inside the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and then north toward Reagan National Airport. Old Town is served by the King St. Metro and the King St. trolley. With over 100 restaurants, shops, boutiques, coffee shops, ice cream houses and more, there's always fun to be found in Old Town.

More about Old Town

Old Town feels small town, upscale and touristy. For most folks there is a bit of prestige attached to an Old Town address. There are two high rises near the waterfront at the Alexandria House and Port Royal. Some folks call the Torpedo Factory condos the "flagship Old Town" because of their fantastic location.

Old Town Alexandria has many townhouses, row houses and a smaller number single family homes. Click Old Town to search listings of properties in Old Town Alexandria.

Mount Vernon

The Mount Vernon District of Fairfax County is located in the southern part of Fairfax County along the banks of the Potomac and around toward Old Town Alexandria. Mount Vernon is one of nine magisterial districts in Fairfax County. The Mount Vernon area unofficially spans from Belle View Boulevard at the northern tip of the Fort Hunt area all the way down to Dogue Creek just across from Fort Belvoir. Many folk also refer to that part of Mount Vernon which is closest to museum and grounds of the Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens as Mount Vernon.

More about Lower Alexandria

The Commonwealth of Virginia is organized into counties and county-like jurisdictions called "independent cities" or just "cities". Northern Virginia has several independent cities and the City of Alexandria is one such independent city. The City of Alexandria borders Fairfax County, but Alexandria is not in Fairfax County.

Mount Vernon, George Washington's estate on the Potomac

However, to make things especially confusing for newcomers and for folks hunting houses, there are large parts of Fairfax County that have an Alexandria postal address. These areas of "Lower Alexandria"---so called because Lower Alexandria is downriver from Old Town---are most definitely part of Fairfax County and are not in the City of Alexandria. Most of these areas are found in the Lee and Mount Vernon Districts of Fairfax County. In general, postal Alexandria is more suburban than addresses in the City of Alexandria, but this is not always the case.

Lower Alexandria & Mount Vernon Neighborhoods

A few neighborhoods in Alexandria of Fairfax County include:

Locally, "Alexandria" generally refers to greater/postal Alexandria, while "City of Alexandria" refers to the jurisdiction of the City of Alexandria.

West End

Cameron Station cupola

Cameron Station cupola

The West End of Alexandria is a mixed bag. Condos and high rises abound in "Condo Canyon" near Landmark and Lincolnia.

But single family and townhouse development from the 1950's and 1960's is also found tucked on side streets and around unexpected corners. The homes around and near Seminary Road are regarded by many as stately and highly desirable. Another interesting neighborhood in the West End is Cameron Station. Cameron Station is a newer development of townhouses and condos, but the stylings and architecture imitate the best of Old Town. Cameron Station is relatively close to both Landmark Mall and Old Town.
