|About Auburn Village|
"Originally called Auburn Gardens Apartments, this colonial-style complex was converted to condominiums in the early 1980's, and the name changed to the present: Auburn Village."
The Auburn Village complex of nearly twelve acres is located approximately mid-way between Crystal City and Old Town, Alexandria in a neighborhood predominantly comprised of single-family homes. Residents of the Auburn Village Community are typically single adults and first-time home buyers. The three hundred and four homes at Auburn Village range in size from 600 square feet (one bedroom) to 970 square feet (two bedrooms), with many variations in between. The seven slate-roofed buildings are brick, two-story garden style structures which were originally built in the early 1940's.
At the time of conversion, a number of improvements were implemented: the homes were transformed from radiator heat to electric heat pump units and individually-metered electric panels were added; new, more efficient windows were installed and the kitchens remodeled to incorporate more modern appliances, including dishwashers. However, it is more than these improvements that makes these homes uniquely comfortable. The residences within Auburn Village are exceptional in that they retain many of the original quality features, such as six-panel doors, solid brass door handles, cast iron bathtubs and hardwood floors."Most ground floor units include a separate back door and patio area, and many residents have transformed these spaces into delightful gardens."
To many, the most striking characteristic of Auburn Village is the beautiful grounds: the property is covered with a canopy of mature tree specimends which are now fifty or more years old. Additionally, there is an abundance of other, aesthetically valuable plantings, which significantly contribute to the attractive environment.
Residents of Auburn Village enjoy a number of amenities, including a party room with full kitchen, a bicycle storage facility, three conveniently located laundry rooms, storage spaces, ample parking areas, and an on-site Management Office. Additionally, residents may partake of the privelege to participate in the Association government, through service on the Board, by joining one of the Committees, or simply by attending Board meetings and sharing knowledge and suggestions with others. We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to have a hand in the shaping of your Auburn Village experience.
