Mount Vernon is a historic community located along the Potomac River in Fairfax, Virginia, 13 miles south of Washington, D.C. The area is conveniently located near Old Town Alexandria and offers easy access to the District from the George Washington Parkway.
Home to George Washington’s estate (now a museum and tourist destination), Mount Vernon is also popular with families because of its highly ranked Fairfax County schools and abundance of parks and green areas. The community offers a mix of properties for all lifestyles ranging from riverfront estates featuring private tennis courts and swimming pools to more modest homes on tree-lined streets or adjoining parks. Popular communities include Woodley Hills, Yacht Haven, Oxford, and Mount Vernon on the Potomac.
Mount Vernon is bounded by the Potomac River to the south, Huntley Meadows Park to the north, Pole Road/Fort Belvoir to the west and Little Hunting Creek to the east.
