When looking for a place to call home, Northern Virginia has a lot to offer. Life along the Orange Line provides a variety of options for homeowners to find the place that is just right. Venturing away from Arlington, there are also great neighborhoods to be found in other communities, too. In Alexandria, there is one neighborhood which offers not only great homes, but a great sense of connection with the community. Cameron Station is a neighborhood worth checking out.
Bordered by Armistead Boothe Park to the west, Backlick Run to the south, Brenman Park to the east, and Duke Street to the North, this Alexandria community offers ease of access to public transportation and plenty of public green spaces. The Van Dorn Street Metro station is within a 15-20 minute walk from the neighborhood, providing commuter access to the Washington DC Metro region. With parks in close walking distance to the 1,800 properties in Cameron Station, along with locally owned shops and restaurants, getting out for the day or an evening is something you can do close to home.
Cameron Station, originally an Army installation, was redeveloped in the 1990’s with town homes, condos, and single family homes built on a 101 acre area. Since that time, the residential real estate market has held strong for this neighborhood. The majority of residents who own a home here have stayed for the long run. Often Alexandria is seen as a transitory place for people to live, with an influx of residents moving in and out of the area. With Cameron Station, community members enjoy the atmosphere and amenities the neighborhood offers so much, they tend to stay. The popularity of Cameron Station can also be noted in the current values of homes, too. Over the past year, prices have ranged from $300,000 for condos to $1 million for a single family home. These properties have a strong market value and are worth the investment.
Cameron Station is a planned neighborhood which was well planned. With parks nearby and natural settings which bring you closer to nature, it is easy to get to know your neighbors when out for a stroll or a bike ride. The shops are another way to connect with others. With just a few visits to a local watering hole or cafe, residents and business owners alike enjoy a sense of community, as everyone knows one another and looks out for each other, too. The intimacy of community connection that Cameron Station offers is a big plus for anyone looking for a close knit place to call home.
