Beverley Hills, VA - A Place Where I Wanna Be...

We live in Beverley Hills in Alexandria Virginia. It is a great part of Alexandria and we love the community aspects of the area. The Beverley Hills area is defined by the many trees and hills, while also the beauty of the spring Azaleas. It is such a great place to live and I am happy our boys will be able to enjoy the area as they grow up.

One of our neighbors came across a great brochure on eBay the other day that he posted for all people to enjoy. It is a sales brochure that talks about the Planned Community of Beverley Hills, Alexandria, VA.

A quote from the brochure: 'The property includes approximately two hundred acres of beautiful, rolling ridge land, west of the upper, or ridge road in Alexandria Virginia. It was once a part of the Alexander family estate, from which Alexandria derived its name.'

It is still a great place to live, though the prices are a lot more than they were in the 1920's. The Washingtonian Magazine has listed Beverley Hills as one of the best places to live in DC over the past four years. Read the review from 2005. Here is a great quote from the magazine last year about Dryver's school...

In Alexandria, neighborhoods surrounding George Mason Elementary—Beverley Hills—is filled with kids. A quarter of the five-and-under teams in the city’s soccer program come from these areas. Many kids walk to George Mason, a once-flagging school that turned itself around in the 1990s under principal Lois Berlin, now superintendent of Falls Church schools.
