Of prime importance to every condominium owner and buyer is the financial condition of the condominium associations. Poor management can lead to drastic special assessments or a deterioration of the property. But good management (like that found at Montebello) can preserve the community's prestige, quality of life and infrastructure.

Montebello's annual budget often forecasts an operating income that rivals some small towns and rural counties. This budget is largely dedicated to current operating expenses such as regular maintenance and certain utilities.

In addition to current needs, Montebello will deposit over two million dollars in a reserve fund. The reserve fund is set aside to pay for long term capital items replacement and maintenance. Owners at Montebello can rest easy knowing that there is money set-aside for a new roof or new windows and doors when the need arises. Montebello's owner fees are some of the lowest in the Washington metropolitan area and range and are based on percentage ownership interest per unit. The owners' fees pay for

A Resort-Style Condominium

Montebello is famed throughout the area for its broad selection of amenities. There is so much to do and enjoy here at Montebello, your home becomes your resort and every day is a holiday to enjoy.

Montebello is perched on 33 acres of land atop Mt. Eagle, just outside Alexandria VA. This expanse is shared by only four buildings surrounding a community center at the heart of Montebello. The entire community is fenced in and residents and visitors alike agree that Montebello's gates and greenery conceal an oasis of tranquility in the urban environment of Fairfax County.

Access to Montebello is controlled by fences and guards who monitor traffic in and out of the community. Security is on-site 24 hours each day. Montebello residents and visitors can enjoy a wealth of activities in and around the community center at the heart of Montebello.

The community center is well-maintained and open from early in the morning until fairly late at night. Need space to spread out for your favorite craft? Need space to build a cabinet? The hobby room is there when you need it. Montebello has a large space dedicated to yoga, aerobics, ball room dancing or any other purpose. This large indoor area features a well-polished floor, mats and a small platform as needed. Why leave the community? Montebello has a full service barber and hair salon on site at the community center.

Montebello's in-house restaurant serves lunch and dinner, specializing in good food at a very reasonable priced. The party room / club room at Montebello is nicely appointed and seats at least 75 guests.

Some of these are on hold while we undergo an extensive renovation of their community center. But the good news about that is that we have never had a special assessment and never will, yet we are still able to update and keep up with modern times due to great management. Of course during Covid it's safe to say that we especially appreciate living in our own private park more than ever ... hiking the paths or strolling around the buildings. Dog-owners especially enjoy our grounds! (And we have no weight limit, by the way.) Our cafe still delivers, too!
