Alexandria Neighborhoods: 2014 Del Ray House & Garden Tour

The 2014 Del Ray House & Garden Tour is this Saturday, May 10 from 11am to 5pm.

Sponsored by the Del Ray Citizens Association, the biennial tour is a great opportunity to see Del Ray ‘up close and personal.’  The tour reflects a wide variety of the architectural and personal style that is such a hallmark of this sought after Alexandria neighborhood.

Noted in the New York Times roundup of house and garden tours, tickets are available online at www.delraycitizens.org; at the Del Ray Variety Store, 203 E Custis and the day of the tour at the Del Ray Farmers Market, 203  E Oxford.

And now for a sneak preview:
