Old Town Alexandria is a perennially favorite destination place for visitors and an equally luring real estate marketplace for luxury home buyers. As the historic seat of the independent city of Alexandria, Virginia, Old Town is an obvious place for old and classic architectural styles. But luxury can be defined both in the older and more traditional ways, as well as upscale modernity whether inside or outside.

Luxury homes in Old Town Alexandria come in various shapes and sizes. There is certainly an emphasis on historic structures as well as newer construction that hews closely to traditional architectural styles. You’ll find lovely old brick single-family homes in the heart of Old Town with modern changes that can be obvious from the street, such as oversized windows. But more often, upscale lifestyle amenities are to be found inside antique houses, with opened-up floorplans and high-end kitchens. A home isn’t always a detached house in old urban neighborhoods. Condominiums and townhouses are also integral to the local housing market, including those adapted from warehouses, factories, store fronts, and office buildings. It’s all part of the fabric in Old Town with its whimsical charm and cosmopolitan lifestyle.
