The Neighborhood

Jefferson Park is home to the historic Mt. Ida Mansion, which is now the Alexandria Country Day School. St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes lower school and George Mason Elementary School and parks are also nearby. The shops, dining, and entertainment of Del Ray are just a short walk away from the neighborhood. Residents can join the active North Ridge Citizens Association which supports efforts such as park beautification, National Night Out, and a Santa visit!

This idyllic neighborhood of approximately 200 homes in the City of Alexandria is bordered by Mansion Drive, Cameron Mills, Braddock and Russell Roads. Jefferson Park offers a broad variety of homes, ranging from traditional Colonials to Spanish style; from Cape Cods to stately mansions. Some of Alexandria’s most prestigious streets are found in this lovely neighborhood.

You may find locals enjoying wine and cheese at nearby Cheesetique or amazing custard from The Dairy Godmother. The Bradlee and Fairlington shopping areas are also convenient to the neighborhood.

Known for its beauty and convenience, Jefferson Park residents often gather for potluck meals and more, such as the annual Labor Day picnic and even a dog talent show. If you’re a commuter, you will love Jefferson Park’s easy access to Metro (the Braddock Road stop is 1.5 miles away), bus routes, interstates, and National Airport.
