Are you a parent thinking of buying in Alexandria?

Many parents are wary about purchasing a property on a busy street, in order to avoid having their children end up chasing a ball into traffic. For this reason, the great option is a street with no through traffic.

But here’s what’s often overlooked: sidewalks. They offer an extra layer of safety, since they provide a buffer between cars and kids at play, and are crucial during the wagon or stroller phase. A sidewalk is a great place for sidewalk chalk-art or a lemonade stand.

Radiators can be piping hot. This usually isn’t a problem for kids (unless they stumble), but for babies this is definitely an area that will need some caution.
A gas fireplace can be dangerous for kids. Some parents in 22309 might not know that according to the Consumer Safety Product Commission, within three minutes, the glass doors of a gas fireplace can become hot enough to cause third-degree burns. Then, it takes about 45 minutes for the glass to cool down.
