As an Alexandria, Virginia resident and REALTOR®, I get to see a lot of Northern Virginia condominiums. While few wish to be outside on a cold day like today (with snow flurries this morning), most of the year provides beautiful, temperate weather in Northern Virginia.
One criteria that many condo buyers ask for time after time is a balcony, terrace or patio. Washingtonians as a group spend a lot of time inside at their high-pressured jobs, whether in the government or private sector. At home, in the evenings, or on the weekends, condo dwellers like to be able to spend some time in the outdoor fresh air. Unless you live in a single-family home with a big yard or a townhouse with a deck or community park, the next best choice is a big balcony.
Many balconies at Northern Virginia condos are very small, with little use other than a bit of storage. Not an inviting atmosphere for spending time outside relaxing, dining, reading, or gardening. However, there is one condo in Alexandria with REALLY BIG BALCONIES! That condominium is Alexandria Knolls West.
How do I know? I live there.
VERY LARGE ALEXANDRIA KNOLLS WEST BALCONY
Look at that huge 40 foot by 6 foot balcony! We took this picture during the Summer when our balcony garden was in full bloom. Notice the sliding glass doors from each room onto the balcony. During the warm Spring, Summer, and Autumn months, we enjoy eating 3 meals a day on our lovely balcony overlooking Old Town Alexandria in the distance. Many residents of Alexandria Knolls decorate their balconies beautifully and enjoy the spacious outdoor space.
