Upscale colonial charm on the banks of the Potomac River in Alexandria VA

How can we help?

We define Old Town South as properties with a 22314 zip code that are found south of King Street in Old Town in Alexandria. Homes here have easy access to the Potomac River and several parks, the largest of these parks is at Jones Point.

If you're looking for something a little newer, the Carlyle area surrounding the USPTO is also south of King Street, inside the Beltway and in 22314. The Carlyle District is most definitely NOT Old Town. [Homes for Sale in Carlyle Area]
