FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Original Kingstowne Developer and Homebuilder Returns to Alexandra, VA to Unveil New 55+ Community
Alexandria, VA, (October 16, 2018) — Miller & Smith, the Washington region’s most award-winning home builder and real estate developer, is pleased to introduce Walhaven at Kingstowne, a brand new community designed for 55+ living.
Walhaven at Kingstowne is the only new community of its kind in Alexandria, VA and offers active adult homebuyers two townhome collections including the Kirkton and the Windfaire. The modern three-level townhomes feature private elevators, two-car garages, designer kitchens, spacious owner’s suites and available screened porches, decks and rear terraces to accommodate easy indoor/outdoor living and a low-maintenance lifestyle. Both collections deliver “lock and leave” home designs with up to 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and up to 2,825 square-feet of living space.
Walhaven at Kingstowne is located in Alexandria, VA, just minutes from shops, restaurants, entertainment and amenities including multiple outdoor pools, fitness centers, tennis courts and community centers. The close proximity to the Franconia-Springfield Metro station also provides residents with easy access to Washington, D.C. and Ronald Reagan National Airport.
“We had both the privilege and responsibility of shaping the original vision for Kingstowne more than 30 years ago,” said Doug Smith, president of Miller and Smith. “We are thrilled to return to the highly sought-after area with the introduction of Walhaven at Kingstowne, a first-of-its-kind community that offers a fresh approach to 55+ living.”
In 1984, Miller and Smith rezoned 1,300 acres of undeveloped land in Fairfax County. At the time, it was the second largest rezoning in the county’s history. Only 12 miles from Washington D.C., Kingstowne quickly became a growing sub-market and mixed-use community, where residents could live, shop, and dine, while enjoying a shorter commute to work in the city. Since developing the land in 1984, Miller & Smith constructed 1,500 out of the 5,800 residential homes.
