Neighborhood Spotlight: The Wessynton neighborhood

3003 Sevor Lane

Neighborhood Spotlight is a recurring column covering both the City of Alexandria and Alexandria in Fairfax County. This monthly column is sponsored and written by the Seward Group of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.

Located in South Alexandria, very close to Mount Vernon Estate, and under the jurisdiction of Fairfax County, the Wessynton neighborhood is a lovely and very unique community.

What was once was the hunting grounds of the Doeg Indians (Native Americans), now sits 156 contemporary homes. Designed by architects Deigert and Yerkes, specifically Nicholas Pappas.

The homes are all tan or brown to ensure that they blend in with the stunning natural setting. There are waterways from the community that lead to the Potomac River via Little Hunting Creek and some of the homes (23) have docks for small watercraft. There is a swimming pool, a clubhouse, and a playground available to all Wessynton residents.

Learn about the history of the neighborhood and the design philosophy.

There are five models of homes in Wessynton and the model names are:

The neighborhood boasts wide, quiet and tree-lined streets and does provide water access to its residents with a community dock. There is a fairly strict Homeowners association here and everything on the exterior of the homes must be approved by the HOA board. This neighborhood looks exactly the same as the year it was developed. The preservation of the community aesthetic is vital.

There is a separate homeowners association for the Waterfront residences, called Wessynton Marine Association. Twenty three of the 156 homes are on the water.
