Lynhaven Positive Press

Last month, Lynhaven was featured in the Washington Examiner's Real Estate Section. For those of you who are not familiar, Lynhaven is just north of Del Ray, across Route 1 from the Potomac Yard shopping center. The article describes Lynhaven as an affordable transitional neighborhood close to DC. It highlights the rising popularity of the area, especially with the possibility of the Potomac Yard. Most notably it describes the rising property values and amenities in the area.

Additionally, the article describes some of the history of Lynhaven. "Lynhaven was developed by J. Wesley Buchanan, who founded the National Association of Home Builders. The name refers to his daughter Rosalyn. The brick and steel row homes contained two and three bedrooms and one bath. An article in 1942 refers to the basements being designed as “rumpus”
rooms and decorators who’ve “provided unique ideas for nominal cost.” Advertisements offered homes for payments of as little as $31.65 a month."

Positive Press for Alexandria is ALWAYS beneficial!
