With mature landscaping and desirable floor plans, the Wessynton neighborhood is dominated by Mid-Century Modern homes and tranquil spaces. Development began in the 1960s when the Mount Vernon Ladies Association sold off more than 60 acres of wooded land to the developer. This picturesque neighborhood in Alexandria was first developed in the late 1960s, designed by one of DC’s leading modernist architectural teams at the time.
That’s why even today you’ll still find many Mid-Century Modern homes and Contemporary-style architecture in Wessynton. A neighborhood review board is in place today to ensure any home modifications that are made still retain the neighborhood’s original architectural vision.
