Modern Life in Old Town Alexandria
by Emile Openchowski
Savvy and sophisticated homeowners can now enjoy a contemporary take on Old Town Alexandria thanks to the opening of The Duke townhomes and condominiums. The upscale community, built by Marquis Homes, brings new construction to the historic neighborhood, seamlessly blending traditional and modern styles.
The development’s stately brick buildings are set near a beautifully landscaped courtyard that’s located just blocks from the King Street Metro station and less than 10 miles from Capitol Hill. But don’t let the proximity to Washington fool you: The Duke is far enough away to completely escape the hustle and bustle of downtown DC.
With prices starting in the upper $500s, the 40 condominium apartments feature spacious layouts, each including two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Floor plans range from 1,311 square feet to 1,570 square feet, and underground private parking is available.
The 18 Grand Towns are just as impressive. Ranging in size from 1,892 to 2,245 square feet, these lavish homes start at around $700,000. Each one features three finished levels, an all-brick exterior, three spacious bedrooms, three full bathrooms, an outdoor entertainment area, a fireplace and more.
