City of Alexandria
 
The City of Alexandria has about 140,000 residents and is about 6 miles south of Washington, DC.  People love Alexandria because of its central location with easy commutes to Washington DC, Old Town Alexandria, Tysons Corner and other points in Northern Virginia.  It is just minutes from the Reagan National Airport (DCA).  With numerous wonderful residential neighborhoods, Alexandria is a great place to find a nice single family home or luxury townhome.
 
Braddock Heights: The Braddock Heights neighborhood in the City of Alexandria is located along Braddock Road between King and Russell Streets.  Braddock Heights has about 500 homes which were primarily built in the 1930's-1950's.  With convenient access to both 395 and within about 1 mile of the Braddock Road Metro Station, Braddock Heights is a commuter's dream!  Local restaurants include: May Island, Pizzaiolo and Rampart's Tavern & Grill.  Just minutes from Old Town Alexandria, Del Ray and Shirlington, Braddock Heights provides easy access to excellent shopping, restaurants, theaters and nightlife!
 
Beverly Hills: The Beverly Hills neighborhood in Alexandria is within the North Ridge area in northern Alexandria, which gets its name from the hilly section of Russell Road near the Beverly Hills Community United Methodist Church.  This residential neighborhood is comprised of single family homes built in the 1930's-1960's.  With excellent commuter access to Washington DC, Old Town Alexandria and much of Northern Virginia, this is a highly desirable area to live where many homes have been updated with luxury renovations.  The Beverly Hills neighborhood is served by the North Ridge Citizens Association. 
 
Seminary Ridge:  The Seminary Ridge neighborhood in the City of Alexandria has a long history.  The land was originally developed in the mid-1800's by Colonel Arthur Herbert (born in the John Carlyle House) who later became associated with Burke & Herbert Bank.  Colonel Herbert named the property after Muckross Abbey in Killarney County Ireland.  During the Civil War, the Muckross Estate in Alexandria Virginia was the site of Fort Worth, where Union and Confederate troops clashed in the heart of Alexandria.  Louis E. Jefferies purchased Muckross Estate from Colonel Herbert in 1923 and sold it to Fred A. Moss in 1936.  In 1970, when the land was subdivided to create the current neighborhood of Seminary Ridge, the remaining estate was referred to as Moss Estate.  In 1970 when Seminary Ridge was developed, Mrs. Fred Moss moved into the Gatehouse, which has remained in the same family to present day.
 
Seminary Ridge gets its name from the Virginia Theological Seminary, which sits atop Seminary Road.
