Remarkable. Recognized. Riverside.
Old Town Alexandria is located along the western bank of the Potomac River. Residents are mainly professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies and trade associations located in proximity to the federal government.
The historic center of Alexandria is known as Old Town. Along with its concentration of boutiques, restaurants, antique shops and theaters, it remains a residential neighborhood. Many of Old Town Alexandria’s town homes are true Trophy Homes, some of which are always included in our Timeless Classics collection. For larger homes with significant acreage, look to properties along the Potomac waterfront.
