House of the Day in Alexandria, Virginia
We haven’t done a ‘House of the Day‘ in a while but, I always notice this 1940’s era house driving in the Old Town area for three reasons. 1) Love the colors of the house, 2) love the flag out front, and 3) the door in between the two houses.

2016 Del Ray House & Garden Tour

Biennial Del Ray House & Garden Tour

This year’s Del Ray House & Garden Tour included homes ranging from a house featured on the cover of Country Living magazine to a modern addition with a rooftop garden. Copies of the recently released Del Ray Pattern Book and additional information about the history of Del Ray (formerly the town of Potomac) was also found on the tour.

This is a tour that showcases what makes living in Del Ray special – from houses with an artistic flair to small spaces to ‘older’ and ‘greener’ homes to everything in between.

To be considered for the biennial tour, a number of items were considered for each home; architectural interest, historical significance, noteworthy additions or renovations, artistic expression, green homes, and/or outstanding landscaping.

Click on the slideshow above to view our favorite scenes from the 2016 tour or view the photos on our Facebook page.

The Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia
