Downsize at Montebello in Alexandria
Empty nesters looking to move closer to DC without sacrificing space and privacy, have a very viable option in the luxurious Montebello high-rise in Alexandria, Virginia.
Located just five minutes south of Old Town Alexandria and close to the Beltway and George Washington Parkway, Montebello combines urban conveniences with a maintenance-free lifestyle. The four 15-story towers anchor generously proportioned residences ideal for couples moving from a large estate who don't want to give up treasured possessions such as baby grand piano or that one-of-a-kind contemporary artwork. Ranging from 850 - 1,695 sf of gracious living space, the apartments come in 11 different floor plans with 1-4 bedrooms. Select residences have been combined to provide an even larger footprint. All homes feature decks and balconies to take advantage of the views of the Potomac River and other DC landmarks. Oversized windows provide an abundance of natural light as well as feeling of wide open space.
The upscale community is gated with 24/7 security and designed to provide all the amenities you need on site without ever leaving the complex. Whether it's a pet playground, dry cleaner or bowling alley, the Montebello, which translates to "Beautiful Mountain," has it. Active residents also have a wide range of fitness choices ranging from one of several indoor and outdoor pools, tennis facilities, a fitness center, and the latest Tai Chi and yoga classes in a private studio. The Montebello's premier location provides easy access to the network of wooded hiking and running trails that link the area to the nearby Marina and Potomac River. Once you've completed your workout, you can indulge in a sauna or steam bath and let that last bit of tension drain out of you in the soothing heat. An active community room ideal for gatherings is dominated by a large screen TV, ping pong table and a nearby card playing room where residents engage in lively games of bridge. A full service restaurant not only serves lunch and dinner but also provides take-out service and delivery to your residence when you want to stay in.
When and if you're ever ready to leave Montebello, a complimentary shuttle will pick you up at the front of the building to transport you to area shopping centers as well as Old Town's fabled attractions. The shuttle also goes to the Huntington Metro Station on the Yellow Line although it is within walking distance by a private path. Located at 5901-5905 Mount Eagle Drive, Montebello combines the culture and convenience of urban living with the space and wooded setting of a suburban estate.
