Who Wants a Big Balcony? Alexandria Knolls West Condos have the Biggest!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Allegiance, Managing Broker/Branch Vice President
As an Alexandria, Virginia resident and REALTOR®, I get to see a lot of Northern Virginia condominiums.  While few wish to be outside on a cold day like today (with snow flurries this morning), most of the year provides beautiful, temperate weather in Northern Virginia.
 
Very tiny balcony
 
One criteria that many condo buyers ask for time after time is a balcony, terrace or patio.  Washingtonians as a group spend a lot of time inside at their high-pressured jobs, whether in the government or private sector.  At home, in the evenings, or on the weekends, condo dwellers like to be able to spend some time in the outdoor fresh air.  Unless you live in a single-family home with a big yard or a townhouse with a deck or community park, the next best choice is a big balcony.
 
 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
Many balconies at Northern Virginia condos are very small, with little use other than a bit of storage.  Not an inviting atmosphere for spending time outside relaxing, dining, reading, or gardening.  However, there is one condo in Alexandria with REALLY BIG BALCONIES!  That condominium is Alexandria Knolls West
 
How do I know?  I live there.

VERY LARGE ALEXANDRIA KNOLLS WEST BALCONY 
 
 
Look at that huge 40 foot by 6 foot balcony!  We took this picture during the Summer when our balcony garden was in full bloom.  Notice the sliding glass doors from each room onto the balcony.  During the warm Spring, Summer, and Autumn months, we enjoy eating 3 meals a day on our lovely balcony overlooking Old Town Alexandria in the distance.  Many residents of Alexandria Knolls decorate their balconies beautifully and enjoy the spacious outdoor space.

Brian- You have a nice balcony, how much time do you get to spend out there? In what months of the year? I never understood why someone would buy a condo on the ocean here with a teeny tiny balcony with those awesome views! It makes no sense! Katerina

Brian, some kind of outdoor space makes a condo so much more attractive, at least in my opinion.  I spend a lot of time on my front porch, and I'd be lost with no way to step outside or sit and blog!  Well, not today.  Maybe not in August, but the space is very usable for about eight months out of the year.

KATERINA:  Thanks.  Generally from about mid-March through early November we're able to spend time out on the balcony.  It was one of the big selling points when we bought the condo.  A couple years ago, we had it tiled with the Mediterranean tiles.

PATRICIA:  I certainly agree.  Being locked up inside all day can make one irritable.

These impressive balconies were one of my deciding factors when looking for a condo in Alexandria. I am lucky enough to have 2 balconies in my unit. A 30' one spanning from my living room to guest room and a second private balcony off my master bedroom.
