Landmark Mews was not arbitrarily named – true to Webster’s definition of mews it is a hideaway. At its vantage point atop the rise along Stevenson Avenue, the Mews is briefly visible from I-395. Bordered by only two streets, Stevenson Ave and Stultz Road, and nestled behind an aesthetic brick wall, the community is an oasis of calm inside the beltway.
Streets, sidewalks, and streetlights within the community belong to Landmark Mews, not to the county. They are maintained and serviced by the homeowners, who pay a monthly fee for this purpose. Stevenson Avenue, its sidewalks, and lights are publicly owned. The State Department of Transportation maintains and services the road, including snow removal. Fairfax County pays for lights and sidewalks. Stultz Road divides Fairfax County from the City of Alexandria, which is responsible for its maintenance.

A Board of Directors, consisting of seven directors elected for a three-year term by the homeowners, governs the LMCA. The Board is responsible for “the maintenance, preservation, and architectural control of the residence lots and common area”. Permanent and ad hoc committees carry out most of the Association’s work. These include: Covenants, Landscape, Zoning and Land Use, Social/Welcoming, and Finance.
The homes in Landmark Mews encircle a common area that provides a park-like setting where neighbors can gather. The gently sloped grounds offer a paved sidewalk for a secluded stroll and a garden bench for private contemplation. Stone-filled pathways line breezeways that run along the rear of homes, contributing to the Mew’s inner charm.
Landmark Mews is a lovely place to live – probably the most spacious town homes and ideally located community in the Washington Area. For a look at gracious living, view the THE KEATS and THE BYRON models but keep in mind, no two homes are alike!
More About Landmark Mews
A 1980′s Long & Foster sales brochure described Landmark Mews in the following way:
“Landmark Mews represents nothing less than a renaissance of homebuilding possessing such a high degree of craftsmanship that it is truly an art form. Inspired by the romantic literary and artistic movement which bloomed in Europe at the turn of the 19th Century, the homes of Landmark Mews are characterized by the use of the finest natural materials in the construction process, and by an attention to detail that is simply unparalled by other homes in their price range. Furthermore, the location of Landmark Mews could scarely be improved upon. Those who reside here are but 12 minutes from National Airport, 20 minutes from the White House and 10 from Old Town, while Landmark Shopping Center is only a minute away. All in all, Landmark Mews captures the Romantic spirit to perfection, while also offering practically every modern luxury imaginable. Whichever home you choose, you’ll find that life at Landmark Mews means living at its best.”
Some things never change.
