The Ten Least Expensive Properties in Old Town Alexandria

Hear ye, hear ye! If you're in the market for colonial touches in condos without spending a king's ransom, then make your merry way to Old Town Alexandria. With quaint shops, interesting watering holes, and classic architecture in the walkable neighborhood, Old Town attracts the young, the old, and the in-between. The area is a blast from the past without the hassle of actually getting into your souped-up DeLorean. And if you can capture a unit with a Potomac view, all the better.

10. 125 N Lee
Asking Price: $448,000
Square Feet: 960
Price Per Square Foot: $467
The Lowdown: To begin our Old Town journey, stroll over to the Torpedo Factory to check out this new listing. The 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo is close to King Street conveniences, has hardwood floors, an updated kitchen, plenty of light, a wood-burning fireplace, and garage parking. Better take a peek before this one is off the market.

Asking Price: $430,000
Square Feet: 1,170
Price Per Square Foot: $368
The Lowdown: Dream of getting away from it all without actually getting away? Check out this 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo billed as "resort living on the Potomac". With ample space and plenty of picturesque amenities, this is perfect for someone who wants to splash around during the warm months and not compromise on comfort. As long as you can afford the monthly $846 HOA.

8. 603 Queen St
Asking Price: $429,000
Square Feet: 870
Price Per Square Foot: $493
The Lowdown: If it's history you want, this condo in a 1815 Federal row house listing certainly delivers. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit has a graceful entry staircase, plenty of colonial-inspired paint colors, a wood-burning fireplace, and a library.

7. 220 N Asaph St
Asking Price: $375,000
Square Feet: 691
Price Per Square Foot: $543
The Lowdown: With 2 bedrooms and located in the "heart of Old Town", this condo has plenty of potential and an accessible location. Just a block from King Street, the unit has a fireplace in the living room, a balcony overlooking a "peaceful courtyard", attic space from additional expansion, and hardwood floors to boot.

6. 1010 Prince St
Asking Price: $350,000
Square Feet: 620
Price Per Square Foot: $565
The Lowdown: If you want to sound fancy, then check out this "pied a terre" in Old Town. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo has a new kitchen, hardwood floors that gleam and glisten, and colonial crown molding. And it's all in a classic house built in 1814.

5. 715 S Washington St
Asking Price: $259,000
Square Feet: 581
Price Per Square Foot: $446
The Lowdown: Yeah! This is a condo that pulls all the stops. "Gutted to the studs" and "upgraded to the max", this 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit has a mirrored backsplash, lighted cabinets, a gas fireplace in the living room, and is sound-proofed for your noise-making (wink, wink) convenience.

4. 1730 W Abingdon Dr
Asking Price: $249,900
Square Feet: 610
Price Per Square Foot: $410
The Lowdown: There's not a lot of info about this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo on the north side of Old Town. It's for sale by owner and has been on the market for more than 120 days. But we do know there are wood floors in the unit.

3. 820 S Washington St
Asking Price: $239,900
Square Feet: 588
Price Per Square Foot: $408
The Lowdown: While its size seems to be on the small side for this 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo, "don't be fooled by square footage". With an open floor plan, "beautiful Brazilian cherry hardwood, granite counters in kitchen, large bedroom, and updated bath", this unit has plenty to entice a buyer, including "low utility costs and condo fees".

Asking Price: $232,000
Square Feet: 600

The Lowdown: If you want to be reacquainted with nature, maybe this unit will be what you're looking for. The 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo has plenty of morning light from its east-facing windows, access to community tennis courts, grilling spots, and the pool. Plus, you're not too far from biking trails. But if you want to stick to the streets, there's also parking for two cars.
