Does anyone here have recent experience with Huntington Club condominiums by the Huntington metro stop? The condo prices there are exceptionally low and the community seems pretty nice in that the buildings and grounds appear to be well-kept. The condo fees are a bit high but I have seen much worse and they are not so high as to counteract the low cost of the units. The area does lack walkability but with the metro right there that is not a big deal. I have done crime checks and there doesn't seem to be any safety issue there. What gives with this place?

It is an older condo community. I visited there maybe five years ago to see if I wanted to rent. The unit was okay but the few amenities it had (e.g. fitness center) seemed outdated. Overall, things seemed kind of worn down. Perhaps things have changed for the better since...but then again, it might be why the prices you're finding are low. Take a look at the newer Midtown Alexandria across the street for a comparison.

It's true that there's not much happening around Huntington. The condo's best advantage may be its location right next to the Metro, close to the Beltway and a short drive over to Old Town Alexandria and the waterfront. Most of your typical big box, chain restaurant and grocery store needs can be met further down on Route 1/Richmond Highway.

That might be an area that has flooding because of its proximity to the river, unless I'm mistaken. I was interested in a place in that area not long ago but was warned against it for that reason. It might have been a different development nearby, but as I recall it was that area. You might want to look into that.

Flooding is a problem on the other side of Huntington Ave. (off of Arlington Terrace, for instance), but I haven't heard of flooding affecting areas south of Huntington Ave., which is where Huntington Club is located.
