Guilford of Alexandria, VA

Franconia real estate agents
Nesbitt Realty can help you buy and sell real estate in Franconia.

An old part of Franconia, Guilford can be found intersecting both Kingstowne and Rose Hill. While many communities have begun to flow with these modern times, Guilford has managed to maintain its idyllic feel.

Guilford can be found north of Telegraph Road, east of South Van Dorn Street, west of Rose Hill Drive and south of Franconia Road. It is characterized by small, disconnected homes situated in large land areas (half-acre lots are quite commonplace), with some homes occupying as much as two lots.

Not much of a transportation hub, it would be odd to find pedestrians and vehicles clogging the streets of this town – thus, it is safe to say that Guilford is a relatively quiet community.

Some of the community establishments found here are Thomas Edison High School found in the northeast area, which is also the location of a post office. The Greendale Golf course and Washington Golf’s driving range can also be found in Guilford.

As a means of entertainment, Guilford citizens often make their way to Kingstown’s strip mall for a movie or to King Street Blues for a drink or two.

Consider Clermont — a quiet neighborhood with a convenient location

Clermont is a subdivision of single-family residences located between Franconia Road and the Capital Beltway. Despite being wedged between these two busy roads homes in Clermont have a wooded suburban feel. Trees here are mature hardwoods and the homes are a mix of older brick homes and newly built homes on a grander scale. The large lots at Clermont invite stately knock-down and rebuilds, but original homes have a lot of charm.

Single Family Homes in a Quiet Community

Rose Hill Farms is a community within Rose Hill, a community located in Fairfax, Virginia, between Alexandria and Mount Vernon.

Rose Hill Elementary School

Rose Hill is a suburban community mostly composed of red brick, single-family homes, with mostly four bedrooms, built in the 1950s on spacious, treed lots that overlook the Eisenhower Valley.  Interestingly, the land that became the Rose Hill was part of an 18th century plantation called Rose Hill, hence the name.  Residents of Rose Hill have easy access the Huntington and the Franconia/Springfield Metro stations.  Rose Hill Farms is served by Rose Hill (Elementary and Middle School), and Thomas A. Edison High School.
