Neighborhood Spotlight: Kingstowne

We often talk about how much Old Town has to offer, but Old Town certainly is not the only place to have a good time in Alexandria. Just about fifteen minutes away sits the Kingstowne neighborhood, a bustling community that offers activities for the whole family and an exciting real estate scene, to boot.

If you’re looking for a fun place to take your kids or visit with your friends and family, you can while away an afternoon at Top Golf, hitting some balls at the range or playing a round of mini golf with your little ones. You can also see a movie at the Regal Kingstowne movie theater, dine at great restaurants like East Moon Asian Bistro, enjoy some good shopping, stop for smoothies at Robeks, stroll around Kingstowne Lake, or buy local produce, baked goods, and the best kettle corn to grace Northern Virginia at the Friday Farmers Market. A CAVA just opened in the Kingstowne Shopping Center, too!

Kingstowne is a wonderful place to live as well as visit. Just minutes from I-95 and the Metro, it makes for an easy commute to Washington, D.C. or Tysons, and its position between Telegraph and Franconia Roads allows for quick transit to Old Town, Springfield, Fort Belvoir, Mount Vernon, the new Wegmans shopping center, an inviting coffee shop called Grounded that is beloved by locals and anyone who happens to stop in, grocery stores, gas stations, local schools, and more. Being so close to so much, it’s amazing that Kingstowne can still feel peaceful, but its residential communities are situated in a way that provides for tranquil removal from everything taking place all around.

The stats* reflect the popularity of the area, with twenty closed sales in June alone, a median sold price of $557,565 (up 10 percent year over year), and an average of twelve days on the market (down 63.6 percent year over year).
