The 165 unit community of Charlestowne Village was developed in 1964; originally as a rental complex. In the mid 1980s it became a condominium townhome complex.

Water Shut Off – If you require the water to be shut off in order for a contractor to do work within your home, we recommend consulting with a licensed and insured plumber about the project. Often water can be shut off directly at the shut of valve to the item – sink, toilet, etc. and you can complete the project without having the water shut off to the entire building.
If you require the water to be shut off to the entire building group in order to complete your project:
Do you smell gas? If you suspect a gas leak, leave the area immediately and call 911 or call the Washington Gas Company emergency line immediately at 844-WASHGAS (927-4427).
