Catch a Cameron Station condoSay this five times fast: "Catch a Cool Cameron Station Condo While You Can."  It's not a tongue twister -- it's real estate advice. 

 

The holidays are over and you've decided to begin your home search in earnest.  One of your New Year's resolutions may be to purchase a home in 2008.  Due to dropping prices and rising inventory, You Might Actually Afford a Home in 2008

 

 

 

Cameron Station ranks as one of Alexandria, Virginia's premier communities.  The neighborhood is conveniently located off of Duke Street, with easy access to major highways I-395, I-495, and I-95.  Less than a mile from the shopping of Landmark Mall and only 10 minutes from Old Town Alexandria, the community offers an easy commute for people working at the Pentagon, in D.C., or anywhere throughout the metro-D.C. area.  Cameron Station offers a mix of condominiums, townhouses and several single family homes.

50+ acre Ben Brenman Park is adjacent to the community and most residents consider it their own beautiful backyard. Features of the park include softball, baseball and soccer fields, a lake with gazebo and fountains, a picnic pavilion with grills,  bike and walking trails, a fenced dog park, and a child's playground.


Across Duke Street from the Cameron Station entrance is Charles E. Beatley Library, the main library for the City of Alexandria.  A 24-hour CVS and Landmark Honda are also across the street.  A new Harris Teeter grocery store is just down Duke Street.

 

Within Cameron Station itself, make sure to try the fabulous new eatery Food Matters, which serves a variety of organic and locally grown food.

Well done.  Goodness, you must own Cameron Station.  I suspect they'll be sold out soon.

Very nice!  I like how you've done the maps.  Is the blue highlight a part of the original or did you add it?

JOSETTE:  Thanks for your comment.  I used Google maps which allows you to customize the maps and add in territories, highlights, etc.  Then used the print screen function to capture it as a jpeg file.
