It was love at first sight when we found our home fourteen years ago at 1103 Villamay Boulevard. The marvelous view of the Potomac River drew us in and we never looked back. We have awakened to the sunrise view of the river from the master bedroom and have enjoyed the view from nearly every room of the house, during every month of the year. Every day, we watch the river’s activity all the way from the Wilson Bridge to Ft. Hunt.
Our whole family has enjoyed the active community life of Villamay, from annual grown-up soirees to the Fourth of July parade and much more.
The easy commute to D.C. and the airport, our local shopping and all that Old Town Alexandria has to offer has made our home in Villamay a most convenient location. The Mt. Vernon bike path, just steps away, has provided countless hours of active family enjoyment, from running to bicycling and picnicking.
There simply is no better place to live than right here in Villamay –
We hope you enjoy our home as much as we have,
Rob and Liza

Old Town, S on GW Parkway. R on Tulane, Left on Park Terrace, R on Villamay to home on left.
The area takes its name from a post-Civil War era fort constructed near the banks of the Potomac River that was intended to compliment the defenses of Washington, DC with Ft. Washington on the opposite side of the river. Ft. Hunt was even home to a top secret military intelligence operation during World War II. While no shots were ever fired in anger, the remains of the facility are the centerpiece of the sprawling Ft. Hunt Park. The George Washington Parkway is a beautiful ribbon of road that runs through the community towards George Washington’s Mt. Vernon to the south, offering incredible vistas of the Potomac River. There are beautiful communities of primarily single family detached homes to the west of the Parkway, including Hollin Hills, a neighborhood of roughly 450 homes designed by Charles Goodman immediately after World War II. It is considered a landmark of contemporary design.
Parks, scenic vistas of the Potomac River and the walking and biking trail that runs from Mt. Vernon to Rosslyn right through Ft. Hunt are the anchors for this beautiful community. While there a handful of townhomes, almost every dwelling is a detached home, ranging from 1950's construction to magnificent new homes overlooking the river. And the incredible variety of shops and restaurants of Old Town are just minutes away up the Parkway.
There’s no better drive in the metropolitan area than the beautiful George Washington Parkway. By design, there are no traffic lights, no billboards and no trucks or commercial traffic allowed. Any drive to or from work that includes a stretch on the Parkway makes the rest of the trip more bearable. The area is well-served by bus routes as well, filtering to the Huntington Metro stop, as well as direct routes to the Pentagon.
