Part of the Manchester Lakes planned community in Alexandria VA (22310), Essex House condominiums offer stylish floor plans, commuting convenience, and is a walkable, pet-friendly community that's close to shops and restaurants.
Only 10 minutes from the capital beltway (I-495), Essex House residents also benefit from the Fairfax Connector bus service that goes directly to the Franconia-Springfield metro (end of the blue line) and being just two red lights away from the I-95 HOV lanes. Highly acclaimed Fairfax County Public Schools nearby include Franconia Elementary, (2 comments)
Do you see what I see, stability amongst the Manchester Lakes townhomes for sale, but what about the condos? Could it be that the Manchester Lakes condos of Essex House, Victoria Crossings, Tiers I, Tiers II, and Surrey are facing some stiff competition from the neighboring Kingstowne condos in Eton Square, Chancery, and Stratford Place? Five condos currently for sale in Manchester Lakes, and in the past 30 days one has gone under contract. The townhomes in Manchester Lakes are much fewer in number and they enter the market (3 comments)

This is a view of the sun setting behind my house aftter the DC Snowpacalypse. This is the one section of undisturbed snow before my kids and I started to frolick :-) Everything looked so beautiful and peaceful.
These are icicles hanging over the front porch. Eye-yeye-yeye! Luckily we knocked them down already. Can you imagine these coming down? Local authorities issued warnings for people walking around in the city because there are much larger and longer icicles hanging down from the buildings in Old Town Alexandria and in Washington DC.

The number of Alexandria City townhouses/rowhouses sold increased from 32 to 41. The number of (0 comments)

Software Recommendation for Virtual Postcards - 02/04/10 07:55 PM
Software Recommendation for Virtual Postcards Hi All, I've gotten some very postive feedback from the photo that I took from yesterday's snow. I've seen on occasion a virtual postcard-like image that turns your photo into a digital postcard. It puts a 'stamp' image and looks like a handheld postcard and you can write some custom text. I'd love to create something like that for the photo that I took and send it so my family on the west coast.
Can anyone make a recommendation for software (preferrably freeware :-) that allows you to manipulate a photo into a postcard? Not (6 comments)
This is my Wordless Wednesday photo for this week, although if we get ONE MORE SNOWSTORM, I can imagine that people here in Washington DC will have a lot of WORDS! ;-) I'm looking onto my next door neighbors' backyard, there's actually a swimming pool underneath all that snow! But look at the way the snow covers the trees, makes you want to get the Christmas lights back out! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Buying or Selling Real Estate in Del Ray or Old Town Alexandria VA?
