Across the Potomac River from Washington D.C. lies Alexandria, Virginia. For some, the fact that it is just a river’s cross away from the national capital adds to the appeal that establishing a home in Alexandria offers.

However, a closer look at the areas available in Alexandria will show that this city has more to offer, with a certain ambiance made to fit the tastes of those seeking a suitable residence – whether they’re gearing more towards the classic or the modern.

Alexandria originated from Old Town and this particular location, situated right beside the Potomac River, has the classic ambiance of a riverside town and has quite a charming array of waterfront restaurants, shopping areas, condominiums, houses, and of course, townhomes.

Some of the best deluxe condos and townhouses can be found in Old Town, including Rivergate Townhouse and the Torpedo Factory Condos to name a few.

While Old Town sports the charm and benefits of being the original Alexandria, Kingstowne competes through its modern fixtures, brought about by thorough planning and careful implementation. This modern housing suburban area offers a variety of homes, townhouses and a couple of garden condo compounds, not to mention plenty of community parks and fields.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for classic old school simplicity, Old Town has that charm. Either way, Alexandria offers something to fit everyone’s needs and tastes.
