Franconia
Franconia is located just southwest of the City of Alexandria in Fairfax County. Franconia is largely defined by two large developments: Kingstowne and Rose Hill. Kingstowne is a planned community developed from the mid 1980's until around 2005. The community has broad rolling avenues that interconnect with well-planned cul-de-sac neighborhoods that have a variety of houses, townhouses and condominiums. Most of Kingstowne features updated-colonial style architecture. Many homes and townhouses have brick faces and exterior trim details. In some parts of Kingstowne parking is a little hard to find, but in the older parts of Kingstowne this is less true. Rose Hill was developed from about 1960 to around 1980. Homes in Rose Hill have large lots (by Northern Virginia standards) and usually have sprawling floorplans on one level. Homes in Rose Hill are often all-brick.
