Stroll along the red brick sidewalks of Alexandria's Old Town, and it is not all that difficult to imagine its origins in the mid-1700s when settlers built the first homes and businesses along the shores of the Potomac. Today, the community that George Washington once called home hosts dozens of diverse eateries, unique boutiques and multiple museums.
Residents and visitors alike revel in the King Street experience, where history, cuisine and culture converge along one of the most memorable streets in all of America. Everything is easily accessed via the King Street Trolley. The bustling waterfront is a hub of community life replete with boat tours and water taxis.
Old Town Alexandria is ideally situated. It is only a 15-minute train ride from Old Town to Washington D.C. You can even take a water taxi all the way to the National Mall.
Rich Architectural Heritage
Residents also appreciate the rich architectural diversity of Old Town. According to the Washington Post, you'll find slate-roofed stone cottages that originally sold for $5,500 when they were constructed in the 1930s. The tradition of Old Town's architecture is such that Virginia Tech located it's Washington-Alexandria Architecture Center (WAAC) here. Students enroll in undergraduate and masters programs in architecture and landscape architecture at WAAC.
The Old and Historic Alexandria District Board of Architectural Review assumes responsibility for maintaining the look and feel of this historic district. Roof replacements and other exterior work typically require board review and approval. Whether you live in a home covered by a slate, metal, wood shake or asphalt shingle roof, you'll want the peace-of-mind that comes with working with a well-established, reputable local roofer that fully understands the local permitting and architectural review process.
