Northern Virginia Neighborhoods: An Introduction to Cameron Station, Alexandria

If you have ever driven up and down Duke Street through the West End of Alexandria, shopped at the new Harris Teeter grocery store at Shops at Foxchase, or taken your children to one of the many programs at the Charles E. Beatley Library across the street, then you are aware of the fabulous Cameron Station neighborhood.



Cameron Station comprises more than 1200 housing units with more currently being built and is composed of a mix of single family homes, townhouses and condominiums.  The community is one of the premier and most popular neighborhoods in Alexandria.


Located just west of Old Town Alexandria, Cameron Station provides comfortable, convenient modern urban living with touches of yesteryear including brick sidewalks, parks with gazebos, and colonial street lamps.  The community has its own elementary school within the neighborhood, Samuel W. Tucker Elementary School.  Since Cameron Station is adjacent to the 50 acre Ben Brenman Park, it is an ideal community for dog owners.  In fact, when I’ve been through Cameron Station with my clients, it appears as if everyone there owns a dog!


Besides its great location near Old Town Alexandria, Washington D.C., I-395, and I-95, Cameron Station offers many other amenities, including a neighborhood pool and community center including a gym with the latest equipment.  One of the greatest features of the Cameron Station community is Main Street, with its great retail shops, Cameron Perks coffee shop, a florist, a daycare center, and coming soon a new restaurant!


Cameron Station townhomes with a two car garage versus a one car garage definitely command a premium.  Besides being for the most part larger townhomes, the two car garage is just more practical for today’s Northern Virginia homebuyer.  Homes in Cameron Station with one car garage sold an average price of $584,737 over the last 6 months, while two car garage Cameron Station townhouses averaged $689,666.
