Property Description

601 N. Fairfax Street #405

Old Town’s most thoughtful and finely appointed condo community is The Oronoco. 

Sited on the banks of the Potomac River, The Oronoco is modern elegance rendered in clean gray lines and gleaming glass. Comprised of 60 single-level luxury units, The Oronoco offers the location and amenities to elevate your lifestyle. Access the verdant expanse of Oronoco Bay Park from your back door, and walk just five flat blocks to King Street’s diverse dining, shopping, and bustling waterfront arts district. 

A gracious two-level lobby awaits you, and here you’ll find a concierge, porter and 24-hour security dedicated to your needs. A fitness center with a yoga studio and a heated pool with pool house are your sources for optimal health. Entertain family and friends in the private courtyard’s outdoor kitchen, or enjoy the children’s playroom. Onsite storage and two underground parking spaces convey with your home. There’s even a private dog washing station to keep your four-legged friends looking well-groomed! 

The Oronoco’s steely art deco elevator lifts you to the fourth floor, where Unit 405 opens to reveal breathtaking panoramic views of the Potomac River. A generously sized entry contains your panel for smart home features, such as lighting, sound and ambient controls. Use your features remotely, or set the mood as you hang your coat and tuck your bag in the closet. 

Beyond your foyer is a spacious open floor plan. Designed for living, dining and entertaining, your open space features soaring 10-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. A gas fireplace adds warmth and ambiance, and a broad terrace accommodates a table and chairs for an extension of your indoor living space. Embedded spotlights and speakers integrate seamlessly above, and your 5-inch paneled hardwood floors offer flush electrical outlets strategically throughout the room. 

An extensive quartz island anchors your kitchen. There’s room on one side for seating; opposite, a workstation with deep sink for the chef. Custom cherry cabinets extend to the ceiling, functioning as storage and pantry. A French limestone backsplash is tucked between the stately Broan range hood and a five-burner Wolf range. Wall-mounted Wolf oven and microwave are adjacent to the Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, both seamlessly integrated into your cabinetry. 

Turning your gaze from the Potomac, admire how exquisitely the unit’s three bedrooms, office, two and a half bathrooms, and laundry are appointed tidily down the length of a private hallway, culminating in the master suite. At the top of the hallway, find a half bathroom and a handsome study enclosed by French doors. Sunnily lit, the office gains gravitas from its cherry crown molding, wainscoting, and full-height, full-width built-in cabinets. 

Laundry becomes less of a chore with top-line Electrolux appliances. The linen closet is conveniently placed one door down. 

Two graciously sized bedrooms sit opposite a bathroom with Waterworks double vanity, marble floors and tiled shower with soaking tub. Both bedrooms boast large double-door closets, and while one of the rooms features an elegant tray ceiling, the other enjoys window access to the master suite balcony. 

The master suite is the crown jewel of the unit. Truly, this is a destination within your home where you can retire for the night. Tucked off the main room is a pair of walk-in custom closets — both built to store handily four seasons’ wardrobe and luggage, as well as display your prized shoe or bag collections. Lounge in the intimate sun-drenched nook by the window, take your coffee or nightcap on the private terrace and luxuriate in a fortress of a bed (the room is large enough for it!). The marble-floored spa bath includes a separate water closet, a glass-enclosed steam shower with vented transom, Waterworks double vanity and a built-in floor-length mirror. 

Surround yourself with the premier elegance of The Oronoco, and join the residents who have already discovered the unique lifestyle afforded by modern design, smart technology, and attentive service. This new Old Town landmark offers it all and is surrounded by hundreds of the areas award-winning restaurants, quaint boutiques, and is a short distance to Metro and National Airport. Infinite possibilities will always be at your leisure.

The Neighborhood

Stroll along cobblestone streets, spend time exploring historic landmarks, and shop at hundreds of local shops and eateries, all in idyllic Old Town Alexandria. Everything from the neighborly residents to the charming Old Town Alexandria real estate will have you wanting to call this community home.

One of the most unique neighborhoods in America, Old Town real estate is full of history. The community is home to more than 4,200 historic buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries, with sea ports on the Potomac River that were regularly used during the colonial and revolutionary periods. You can easily see history’s impact on the area in everything from Old Town’s real estate to the small-town feeling that it still holds today.

Old Town real estate includes some of the most charming architecture and properties in the area, with regulations in place to keep it that way. Townhouses on cobblestone streets, row houses with brick sidewalks, and some new modern constructions create a wonderful blend of historic charm and modern convenience.

Old Town has over 100 locally owned shops, most of them a part of the local Boutique District. In these shops, you can really get to know the shop-owners and support the local community. Relaxing restaurants, independent coffee shops, and wine bars provide the perfect backdrop for a night out, with plentiful art galleries, theatres, and parks around to explore. You can jump on a boat to get to Nationals Park for a baseball game, or to Georgetown or National Harbor for even more shopping or dining.

With a quaint small town atmosphere and the flair of city living, this waterfront town is the perfect place for residents of all ages and lifestyles. Just minutes from downtown Washington, DC, close to a major airport, and central transportation running throughout the area, it’s easy to enjoy everything Old Town has to offer. It’s very walkable, so we recommend strolling along the cobblestone streets to get a true feel for the neighborhood.

Don’t miss out on the Saturday Farmers’ Market at Market Square, where you can pick up fresh produce and local products. What’s even better is seeing the familiar vendors and friendly faces week after week, adding even more of a small-town feel to this sweet community. Fun fact: this market is the longest running one in the USA; even George Washington used to sell products there! You’ll also want to stop by Brut for a glass of wine or Champagne. It’s a true neighborhood treasure!
