property: Overview of Hunting Creek Club Condominiums - 03/31/14 01:39 AM
Just south of Alexandria, near the intersection of Richmond Highway and Huntington Avenue, stands a sixteen story brown brick tower called the Hunting Creek Club. The tower shares the neighborhood with a few other high-rises, the most notable being Montebello at the rear on Mount Eagle.
 

 
Built in 1972, the architectural appeal of the building is in that awkward stage that occurs long after “new” but just before “vintage”.

Waynewood is (as they say) only twelve miles from DC but a world away from Washington. Most of the the residences in Waynewood are brick, siding or brick and siding.
 
Many of these homes have large level lots perfect for a game of touch-football or just big enough for a game of wiffle ball.
 
It’s a place that was frozen in time and seems to recall what’s best in America: tree-line streets, a prosperous middle class and families who are involved in the community.

property: Why should I choose a condo? - 01/07/14 11:45 PM
Watergate at Landmark
 
People choose condominium life for a number of reasons. Some condos are less expensive than a traditional single-family house. Additionally, many condos have added amenities and facilities which an individual cannot afford on his own. Most condominiums have amenities you won’t find on a similarly priced single family residence.
 
For example, a typical condo has (at minimum) a pool, a work-out room, and party room. A similarly priced house would not enjoy these amenities. Another benefit of condo living is that owners share in the burden of maintenance and lawn care. This means that some of … (0 comments)

property: Do you know who pays to maintain your condo? - 12/09/13 03:35 AM
The historic Carlyle House in Old Town Alexandria is more than 250 years old.
Everything built by man requires some maintenance at some point. Even so-called maintenance-free homes require some attention. So when making the transition from renting to buying, one aspect of home ownership that must be considered carefully is maintenance.
Renters enjoy few advantages over buyers, but one benefit of renting is that in most cases renters needn’t worry about the expense maintaining a property. Many first time buyers aren’t ready to take on the hassles and expenses of yard work, gutter cleaning, painting and so on, and for … (0 comments)
