A Stone's Throw Away at Stonegate in Alexandria

Braddock Road in AlexandriaStraddling Braddock Road in Alexandria, the community of townhouses at Stonegate is a stone's throw away from Northern Virginia Community College, Fort Ward Park & Civil War Museum, Route 7, Route 395, and everyone's favorite hamburger joint Five Guys.

Stonegate TownhousesWhat many people do not know is the archaeological significance of the community.  A Washington Post article from last year, "5-in-1 Community is Still a Discovery," details that "Several uncovered "chipping clusters" and projectile points ranging from 3,500 to 1,000 B.C. led researchers to believe the site served as several temporary settlements where Native Americans would form tools from cobbles found in the streambed."  My bet is that few homeowners in this popular Alexandria neighborhood are aware of the historical significance of their location. 

Stonegate TownhousesAdditionally, the Stonegate neighborhood, while primarily townhouses, also includes some garden style condominiums.  Stonegate's an ideal neighborhood for those who need a spacious home without spending the dollars required to purchase a single family home in Alexandria.  Condominium units and townhouse models range from 1524 square feet to 2804 square feet.  Plenty of room for furniture and growing families.

The community is comprised of separate communities under the Stonegate aegis:  Manors at Stonegate (condominiums), Stonegate Mews, Highpointe at Stonegate, Hamptons at Stonegate, Stonegate.  Each has its own homeowner's association, even though the only sign you'll see in the community is the large Stonegate sign at the entrance.

 

Stonegate community in AlexandriaThe most recent sales of homes in Stonegate have occurred in the $500K - $700K price range.  

The Stonegate community of Alexandria also has a pool and clubhouse, with a child's playground available to all residents.  The quarterly homeowner's association fee of around $300 covers the playground, pool, snow removal, trash removal, and outdoor landscaping maintenance (which by the way looks great during the Spring, Summer and Fall).

Ah, Stonegate.  I remember when they were built.  These things sell.  It's amazing, but they sell.  In that neighborhood, the key is convenience and style.

Last year, I showed a bunch of places in Stonegate, and who knew?  My guy bought in Brigadoon, and it would have been nice to have a little local lore at my fingertips!  Next time, I'll be ready, thanks to you!
