Dempsey

With the feel of an English village, Alexandria’s Dempsey neighborhood exudes cottage charm. Made up of around 80 cottage-style townhomes built up in the 1930s, buildings in Dempsey often come with slate roofs and stone fronts.

Although the homes aren’t large in size, they are overflowing with charm. There are only two layouts in the neighborhood for buyers to choose from.  This means either an interior unit or an end unit. All of the homes in Dempsey are two stories plus a basement.

Buyers can primarily expect to find homes with two- or three-bedrooms, one bath and up to two fireplaces. Most of the homes no longer have garages, as they’ve been converted into additional living space.

Since they were first constructed, some homeowners in Dempsey have added things like additional baths, porches and sunrooms. Making any renovations to the exterior of your home requires approval from the Old Town Alexandria Board of Architectural Review.  Because there’s no homeowner’s association in Dempsey, there aren’t extra dues or fees to pay to live in the neighborhood.
