About the Community
Welcome to The Isabella at Monticello Mews Condominium Association and thank you for clicking this section to learn more about our community!
The Isabella settled its first units in 2012 and is a 144-unit, pet-friendly mid-rise condominium consisting of six floors of dwellings and two floors of underground parking.
We have a number of wonderful amenities, including being a gated community, shuttle to Van Dorn metro (during rush hours), part-time concierge, multi-sports court, 25-meter pool, gas grills, community room, fitness center, dog park, membership with the Bren Mar Recreation Center, and walking trail.
The Isabella is run by Community Management Corporation (CMC) and is governed by a 5-member Board of Directors that has monthly meetings in the Community Room. Unit owners are welcome and encouraged to attend.
We are located in Fairfax County off Edsall Road, halfway between I-395 and South Van Dorn (just inside the Capital Beltway with almost immediate access to three of the DC Metro area’s main highways: I-495 (the Capital Beltway), I-95, and I-395).
Depending on traffic, you could be in Old Town Alexandria within 12 minutes, Tyson’s Corner within 15 minutes, Arlington within 15 minutes, and DC itself within 20 minutes. The Van Dorn metro stop is a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute drive (taxi, Uber, or Lyft), and sometimes that ride may be free by utilizing the Isabella’s shuttle that runs during morning and evening rush hours. Having the metro only five minutes away, the entire DC metro area is at your disposal.
We also encourage you to explore the immediate neighborhood (the Western end of Alexandria, located just north of Springfield), which offers a seemingly endless array of dining, shopping, and entertainment options.
Our schools are as follows:
- Elementary School: Bren Mar Park
- Middle School: Holmes

Condo fees are assessed by the square footage of the unit and cover water, sewage, trash removal, common area and exterior building maintenance, snow plowing, landscaping, and contributions to reserve funds. Utilities that unit owners pay include electric, gas, and optional internet/phone/cable. Units have central A/C (electric), forced air heating (natural gas), and tankless water heaters. Each condo comes with at least one parking space that conveys with the unit, and there are more than 20 visitor parking spaces available for guests on a first-come, first-served basis.
