This Property At Montebello Caught My Eye

Are These Condos Just Like All The Others?

high-rise condos at 5901 Mount Eagle Dr #807, Alexandria 22303

“I have just had the chance, within the past couple of days, to conduct my first quarterly inspection of a few properties in the Montebello development in Alexandria, Virginia.  I have driven by the complex countless times on the way to the laundromat, restaurants and other various shops out on Route 1., but this was a chance to see it for what it truly is.  Seeing this from the roadway, it looked the same as any other in the area and I expected nothing different.

“The first thing that I realized is that this a gated community.  This, to me, is a huge plus.  There are other gated communities in the area, but this was turning out to be a bit different.  When I got through the gate, after talking with the security guard, I took a right and headed for what I was told was building number 1.  The address is 5901 on the first building and there is a tranquil little jaunt up toward the building through lush trees and over a creek.  I only mention this, because it’s nice to see the Virginia come out in this place.  Personality is how I like to describe this and this made me like it right away.

“After arriving at the correct building I saw initially that parking was ample and depending on what floor you would be living on, you would probably be able to see your vehicle from the window of your condo.  That to me is another good thing.

“I liked the look of the lobby, the elevator and the decor all together in the hallways.  It looked as if it was cared for very well.  The presentation before getting into the condo is important to me.  When I finally got into the first condo I saw the second very good thing about this complex.  The rooms are very spacious.  The condo I inspected that day was a 1 bedroom, two bath and it was very spaciously comfortable inside.  I could easily see all of my possessions fitting well inside this place.

“As I worked my way around in inspection mode, I realized the third great feature about this Montebello complex – the views from the balcony.  Now, it’s not the DC view, but what it is – is a breath of fresh air.  It truly is a relief to me to get just a bit off the busy streets and come up there to see a view of lush greenery.  This day I happen to be on the tenth floor.  Trees and grass are the view from up there (a nice change from the mundane concrete) and it is going to be so beautiful shortly, when the turning of the leaves begins.  I smiled and got back to work.  I completed the inspection, complimented the condo and left, knowing that for the price paid – this was definitely worth it.  I’ve seen many different properties during this current inspection process, but this complex is turning out to be one of my favorites.  Is it time for you to move to Montebello?” – Kelly Nesbitt
