New to the neighborhood
Are you a first time house hunter in Northern Virginia and new to the area? Before you invest in a property it is important to do some research and get to know the city that you are going to be living in. You need to take a close look at the neighborhoods that could potentially suit your needs and lifestyle. Do you want to be near the water? Do you need an easy commute to Washington, D.C? Are you looking for employment? These are all questions that you need to consider before you start your house hunt.
Alexandria, due to its proximity to Washington, D.C, employment opportunities, good school districts and historical charm is a popular city in Northern Virginia. But is it the city for you? Since Alexandria offers so many choices in terms of neighborhoods, styles of property and prices, it is most likely that you will find something to suit both your needs and you budget. But before you can find your perfect house in Alexandria, you first need to find the right neighborhood and to do that you need to get to know the city and familiarize yourself with the different areas.
Old Town is the oldest part of the city and the heart of Alexandria. The first settlement in Alexandria was in 1695 on the banks of the Potomac river and the city grew up around the port. Today Old Town is a bustling tourist area with restaurants, shops, boutiques, art galleries and more, but it still retains its small town feel. Old Town, with its many townhouse, row houses and two sort after high rises near the waterfront (Alexandria House and Port Royal), is a popular location for home buyers looking for a water view and prestigious address. Old Town is served by the King St. Metro and the King St. trolley.

The history of Del Ray does not stretch quite as far back as colonial days and it’s not as old as Old Town but it still has laods of historic charm. The neighborhood was founded in 1894 as a “streetcar suburb” of Washington, D.C and most of Del Ray was built between the 1890’s and the 1950’s. The borough has managed to retain its small town charm and here you will still find white picket fences, American Foursquare homes and quaint streets lined with brick and stone houses. There are also condos like the Colecroft Station development. At the heart of Del Ray is Mount Vernon Avenue with an interesting mix of shops, restaurants and art galleries. Del Ray is served by the Braddock Road metro.
