Mapping the 10 Alexandria Homes the Walking Dead Cast Should Feast Their Eyes On

View as Map

The cast of the zombie apocalypse drama, The Walking Dead, have journeyed all the way from the state of Georgia to Alexandria, Virginia, and that can mean only one thing: it's time to search for the best of the best real estate that not only looks stylish, but offers foolproof protection from the undead. While the 10 single-family homes mapped below aren't super dystopian, they are super typical of what you (and Rick, and Carl, and ...) might find in the Northern Virginia neighborhood—and as said before zombies better beware because these abodes are as tough as they are elegant. If interested in finding out how Washington, D.C. would fare if a zombie apocalypse ever did rampage the nation, you can see the results here.

Copy Link
1700 Russell Rd
Alexandria, VA 22301

Asking price: $1,199,000
Size: 5-bed, 4-bath, 4,160-square-foot single-family home
Price per square foot: $288
The skinny: If The Walking Dead cast is going to set up shop in Alexandria, they should consider this charming abode. Inside, you can find wine fridges, custom cabinetry, and high-end stainless steel appliances. If there's ever a need to scramble down the staircases in the event a zombie breaks in, the staircases are extra wide, so that should help make the escape out a little more comfy.
