Garden Style Condos For Sale At Old Town's Southside

Built in 1941 as garden-style apartments and originally called Boulevard of Old Town apartments, these seven buildings were converted into a condominium community in 2006. The 158 units combine solid, red-brick construction with contemporary finishes such as granite countertops, Brazilian hardwood floors, crown molding, and stainless-steel kitchen appliances.

Studios, 1 bedroom, 2-bedroom and loft units are available, with both traditional and open floor plans. The Bearings condos feature galley kitchens, walk-in closets and ceiling fans supplemented by individual air-conditioning units.

Located in the 800 block of South Washington Street, the Bearings opens to the brick sidewalks and shade trees of Old Town, the oldest part of Alexandria — originally laid out in 1749 — and a nationally designated historic district. Immediately to the south is St. Mary’s
Catholic Church Cemetery, the oldest public Catholic cemetery in Virginia and the oldest active cemetery in all of Alexandria.
