The Washington Metropolitan Area

The DC Metro area includes Washington, DC itself (also known as the District), along with large portions of Northern Virginia and Maryland. That includes Alexandria (with its vibrant Old Town), Arlington, Fairfax, Falls Church, Loudoun and Prince William; and popular parts of Maryland such as Montgomery County and Prince George’s.

Typically speaking, you’ll find more single-family homes for sale in suburban and rural areas. Then again, some of the most densely-populated urban areas also feature stand-alone properties, from antique cottages to new custom creations.

More About Single-Family Homes in the Area

Those who crave classic Craftsman cottages may want to explore the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, while aficionados of mid-century modern architecture should definitely check out the Hollin Hills community where more than 400 low-slung modernist residences are set into natural surroundings.

 There are large and gracious Colonial homes all over the Washington Metro area from North Arlington to DC’s Northwest suburbs, and palatial waterfront mansions along the Potomac River in McLean, Great Falls, Lorton and so many other places.

 From Victorian to Arts & Crafts, and from grand estates to more modest Rambler homes, the Washington area truly has single-family homes for everyone. Call the experts at District Partners at Compass at 202-798-3600 to learn more.
