The biggest perk of this one-bedroom rental in Alexandria is the patio—the triple-wide door provides lots of light for the 900 square-foot space. A ground-level unit, the condo features hardwood floors, a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, and a large window in the bedroom. It’s part of a condo community, which has its own perks—two off-street parking spaces, a pool, and playground access. The nearest Metro stop is the Van Dorn Street station on the Blue Line, about a mile away.
