As of this morning, seven Lake Victoria homes that were listed in the Greater Alexandria Area Association of Realtors MLS went into escrow in 2012 and have closed (Counselor Realty was involved in 57% of the sales). For those of you not familiar with Lake Victoria, it is part of Alexandria’s Chain of Lakes and property owners have the advantage of a location close to the shopping district of Alexandria and area schools such as Woodland Elementary and Jefferson Senior High School. The 416 acre lake is shaped like a claw and a client of mine that owns a home on the west side of the lake tells me that they love it because its shape results in less choppy water on windy days and they find this characteristic advantageous for fishing and water sports such as wake boarding.
Like the rest of the Chain of Lakes, all Lake Victoria homes are connected to city sewer.
