Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) June 10, 2008
The Duke, a brand new neighborhood of Townhomes & Flats in Old Town Alexandria's prestigious Historic District, officially opened for sales on Saturday, June 7th.
The Duke is located along the 1300 block of Duke Street. Its brand new sales center, now open daily from 11 am to 6 pm, is located a couple of blocks away at 118 N. Fayette Street.
One of the most exciting and helpful features of the Sales Center is a detailed scale model of The Duke. In addition to demonstrating the overall layout of the neighborhood, which features Townhomes and Flats connected by a landscaped courtyard, the model showcases the level of architectural detail incorporated into The Duke's design.
"Because The Duke is located in the Historic District, our designs meet very strict architectural standards," said Laurie Shultz, Director of Sales and Marketing for Marquis Homes. "We worked closely with Old Town's Board of Architectural Review to ensure our homes are a natural extension of their historic surroundings."
Marquis Homes, a member of the Van Metre Family of Companies, is celebrating the grand opening of The Duke's Sales Center by offering a special incentive package exclusively for the first 10 homebuyers.
Among the incentives are "no condo fees for the first year, closing cost assistance, and a refrigerated wine cooler included with your kitchen," said Shultz. "We've put together a Founder's Club Package of incentives to thank our first 10 homebuyers and make it easier for them to become part of The Duke." For complete incentive details and restrictions, visit The Duke's Sales Center or call 703-837-0364.
The included features of The Duke are equally impressive. For starters, every single Townhome and Flat includes 2 parking spaces located in The Duke's private-access underground garage. Another feature of The Duke that sets it apart from most condominium-style neighborhoods is its willingness to customize floorplans.
"Our heritage as a custom homebuilder allows us to offer a higher level of design flexibility than most townhome and condominium builders offer," explained Shultz. "We can accommodate some pretty exciting requests, such as combining two adjoining flats, adding a second owner's suite, and even reconfiguring certain aspects of our kitchens."
Those who have already visited the Sales Center have also been impressed by the quality of The Duke's building materials. The Townhomes feature brick on all sides and The Flats boast all brick and concrete construction.
Possibly The Duke's single greatest feature its proximity to Old Town's amenities and attractions. The Duke is within easy walking distance of Metro, Whole Foods and an eclectic mix of boutiques and restaurants. In addition, the Beltway and new Wilson Bridge are literally right around the corner and Reagan National Airport is less than 5 miles away.
Townhomes at The Duke are now selling from the high $700's. Flats are now selling from the high $600's. For more information, visit The Duke's Sales Center at 118 N. Fayette Street.
