Hi all,
We're recent transplants to VA, trying to decide where to call home. We've pretty much narrowed down the areas to south Arlington, or Old Town Alexandria, in order to have a short commute. It would be great to get some input on particular neighborhoods from those who live there. Looking at Shirlington, Fairlington, north old town areas such as Old Town Greens and Potomac Greens, Potomac Yards (is this available yet?) , the Russell Road area,Del Ray and Old Town in general. We don't have kids, so schools not an issue, like to walk to restaurants/shops etc. but treasure a quiet home environment. Would really like to have a garage and at least a small outdoor space, big enough for a grill, table and some chairs. Can be old or newer, but updated kitchen is a must. Rent or buy, budget is up to $3500/month rent or $700000 to buy. Your thoughts?
