Homes along the Potomac River
If you’re in the market for a Riverfront home or home with a view of the Potomac River, there are several residential neighborhoods in North Arlington Virginia that offer beautiful views of the area. These homes overlook the George Washington Memorial Parkway which runs North and South along the banks of the river. Here you will also find many wooded and forested parks.
Most of the waterfront or Riverfront homes are going to be in the Old Town section of Alexandria. Old Town is south of Arlington and carries the most prestigious Zip Code of 22314. Several of these residential neighborhoods are right on the border of DC (the nation’s capital) and Virginia. In addition to easy access to the DC area and north to Arlington, there are also several parks along the waterfront. The beautiful Bell Haven Country Club and golf course is also just south of the freeway. Therefore, you are not only getting a beautiful home with a beautiful view, but also incredible accessibility to the nation’s capital and beyond. Old Town is rich in history and is a must-see neighborhood for visitors and locals alike.
Homes and Prices
Home prices in the Alexandria area start at about $400,000 and can range as high as $3,000,000 or $4,000,000 depending on location and amenities. Those closer to the water will naturally command the higher prices, offering oversized lots with outbuildings, multilevel living, fenced yards and manicured neighborhoods. Many of these homes are going to be two-story brick structures built in the 1930s and 1940s. Many homes offer original woodworking but have updated wiring, plumbing, and some architecture.
