Alexandria VA Homes for Sale: Alexandria Townhouse That Pays for Itself Sold in 8 Days

Alexandria Townhouse That Pays for Itself Sold in 8 Days


The layout of this charming, well located Alexandria, VA townhouse is perfect for multi generational living or for housing an au pair.  

It would also allow a homeowner to have a rent paying roommate without even knowing they were there, since the roommate suite on the lower level has a separate entrance.  

 Located in Alexandria's well established Duke Gardens, you would be just steps from public transportation, with close proximity to shopping, parks and outstanding public library. 


At only $390,000 - and no HOA! - this townhouse boasts new windows, new HVAC, and a fresh coat of paint.

With today's low, low interest rates and the possibility of a roommate helping with the mortgage payment, owning this home could be much lower than rent.  

The upper two levels have a large living/dining space with wood floors, 3 bedrooms, full bath up and powder room on the main level.  There is a large deck overlooking the large fenced backyard. 

Complete with bedroom, living space, kitchen, washer and dryer and full bath, it's the perfect flexspace for a roommate, a nanny or an in law.

The lower level kitchen includes full size appliances, including washer and dryer.  

The downstairs space can be accessed from interior steps or from the separate side entrance, depending on your needs.  

And, unique for a location so convenient for all the city of Alexandria has to offer, there is off street parking.  You can just leave your car in the driveway and easily hop on public transportation for your daily commute. If you prefer to drive to work, though, major commuting routes are easily accessible from this Duke Gardens neighborhood. 

There is a lot to like about this three level Alexandria townhouse and at under $400,000, we don't think it will last long!   For more information, to see photos and schedule a showing, just click on 45 Garden Drive Alexandria VA 22304.    From this website, enter your work address under "My Drive Time" and view actual drive times with traffic for this address.
