Del Ray, an Alexandria neighborhood located just northwest of Old Town, is a delightful and quaint town. Potential owners of Del Ray VA Real Estate will find much to appreciate. Mount Vernon Avenue, Del Ray’s main thoroughfare, is filled with neighbors, children, and pets connecting on the sidewalk. Everyone’s either walking a dog or pushing a stroller. This suburban lifestyle is balanced with an artsy, coffee-shop vibe, eclectic, more laid back. Cafés are packed with groups, couples, and singles on their laptops, and the street’s specialty foods stores are practically steamy with shoppers. It’s the kind of neighborhood that harkens back to an earlier time, where everything was walkable and everybody knows your name.
It’s such an incredibly friendly place with varied, quirky homes, a smattering of Cape Cods, colonials, bungalows, Victorians, townhouses, older row houses, and some boxy brick apartment buildings. Yards are large by urban DC standards. Del Ray has probably experienced the least negative downturn in this housing market of any neighborhood in the Washington metro area because demand has consistently remained high – 78 days is the upper limit that properties spent on the market last year.
