With the charming appeal of early 1940s-era architecture, Yates Gardens presents desirable town home living in Southeast Alexandria. Often the Colonial-style brick town homes of this community provide between 1,600 to more than 1,900 square feet of living space, some of which have been recently renovated to reflect more modern designs and finishes, mixed in with the stylish appeal of generations past.
Originally built to house Pentagon officers, many of the town homes of Yates Gardens feature such coveted additions as abundant hardwoods and even some gas fireplaces. As well, the open floor plans often extend to two- to three-bedrooms and up to three-baths, with three levels of living space.
As well, you may find some decades-old built-ins and crown molding complimented by granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and upgraded cabinetry. Some of the town homes also come with brick patios for outdoor space and assigned parking for added convenience.
This quiet and appealing location is only further enjoyed by its walkability and its friendliness. Equated by some as offering up the appeal of small-town America, Yates Gardens is said to be enticing more and more young families to move to the area.
Close to the Potomac River, area bike trails and parks, the community is also conveniently located when it comes to many restaurants and shops in the region. In addition, it’s only about a half-hour from Downtown DC. Nearby Jones Point Park provides plenty of space for biking and basketball, while the Mount Vernon Trail makes for easy access and recreation around the rest of the area.
The community also holds some historic significance, with ties to the Civil War. In addition, it’s said that then President George Washington even stopped in the Yates Gardens area once for lunch, of course well predating the eventual town homes and now the growing appeal of this quaint Southeast Alexandria community.
