Landsdowne -- The Place We Love to Call Home
Landsdowne is located in Alexandria, Fairfax County, Virginia. Our community includes 619 homes -- a mix of classically styled single family dwellings and three different sizes and styles of townhomes. Our builders included Pulte Homes and Richmond America Homes.
We are a planned unit development with services and amenities funded through quarterly dues, paid by property owners. FirstService Residential is our management company and association administrative arm. The community operates under a set of By-Laws and Guidelines. A Board of Directors elected by the homeowners is the governing body of the community. Monthly Board meetings are open to everyone (owners and renters alike) and residents are encouraged to attend to share ideas, concerns, suggestions and comments about our community.
Landsdowne is located 3 miles south of Springfield Mall and 5.5 miles south of the Capital Beltway/Alexandria. We are convenient to Fort Belvoir, Kingstowne, Old Towne Alexandria, Springfield, Burke, Mount Vernon, Lorton, Fairfax Station, Arlington and downtown Washington, D.C. We are located close to two elementary schools and two area high schools.
No matter what your interests -- whether you are family oriented, a sports fan, history buff, hiker, beach goer, or club enthusiast, Landsdowne is ideally located to provide easy access to any interest or need. If you are a golfer, look no further. Several challenging professional courses are just a short drive. Are you a dog owner? Dog parks are located only a few miles away for the enjoyment of you and your furry family members. Do you like shopping?
