Nestled in between Old Town and Del Ray is the charming neighborhood of Rosemont. Rosemont’s initial development was closely tied to the expansion of the electric rail system in the Washington, D.C. area. Today, its walkability to two metro stops (King Street Metro & Braddock Road Metro) and Amtrak makes Rosemont real estate highly-sought after and a very popular neighborhood. One of the most appealing features of Rosemont real estate is its welcoming suburban feel paired with a walkable urban lifestyle.
The tree-lined streets of Rosemont real estate offer homes with classic, early 20th-century architecture.

Mature trees and sidewalks add to the Rosemont real estate appeal.
Residents of Rosemont can also walk to Old Town Alexandria and its many shops, restaurants, fitness studios, art galleries, and entertainment venues.

For a change of scenery, Del Ray is also an easy walk from Rosemont. Locals can stroll along “The Avenue,” and enjoy coffee at St. Elmo’s, frozen custard at The Dairy Godmother, happy hour at Junction, or live music at Fireflies.
