About Betty Mallon
My husband and I are native Alexandrians and have owned this home for many years. We purchased it so my mother could move from her 3 story townhouse to one level living. She enjoyed many years there before moving in with my sister.
Recently we decided it was the perfect spot for vacationers as it is in a wonderful, quiet community; yet is within walking distance of everything.
I actually grew up in the neighborhood, attended the local elementary school and now our grandson is attending the same school.
We live just a short 5 minute drive from the house and can make ourselves available if there is a problem.
Betty Mallon purchased this bungalow in 1988
Why Betty Mallon chose Alexandria
I know how many people visit the Washington DC area each year, and I wanted to provide a more home-like setting for people who don't like the bustle of hotels. Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray are right on the doorstep of this cute bungalow, and with DC just a short distance away, I thought it was the perfect pied a terre!
What makes this bungalow unique
This is a single family detached home so you don't have go worry about your noise level of coming or going as there is no unit above, below or beside you. You have your own washer and dryer and yard to use for outdoor grilling and dining. There is plenty of room to stretch out in this little home, and the privacy it affords, allows visitors to really 'live' in the DC area. Walking to shops and restaurants, theater, boating, metro and the like are just the icing on the cake.
