Brenton is a community of townhomes and row houses located between Potomac Yards and the Del Ray section of Alexandria, Virginia. Built in the 1940s, the homes are a mix of sturdy, brick townhouses and pre-war row houses framed by mature trees. Many homes are distinguished by front porches and outdoor patios that are ideal for outdoor entertaining or nurturing a garden. Residences span two and three-stories, depending upon the style of the home with the average floor plan featuring 2-3 bedrooms and 2 - 2.5 baths with 900 to approximately 1200 sf of living space.
Select homes feature a partially finished basement ideal for a recreation room or man cave. Many of the Brenton homes have been completely remodeled with renovations ranging from newly refinished hardwood floors to granite and appliance upgrades in the spacious kitchens to new fixtures and tubs in the bathrooms.
Brenton is located west of Route 1, east of Mount Vernon Road and northeast of Braddock Road, less than a mile from the Braddock Road Metro Station. The community offers easy access to Crystal City and Old Town.
