And all the while so many residents still recall the early days when it was a working farm as well as one of McLean’s favorite venues.
Children fed the ducks on Mother’s Day, and paraded in their finery on Easter Sunday. Many a local couple toasted each other at their Rehearsal Dinner overlooking the pond, or whirled around the dance floor on their wedding day at the prettiest of reception venues. Now, time pauses, and once again, the elegant wrought iron gates swing silently forward to welcome you home.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!:
The location is unbeatable! Minutes to Tysons Corner, GW Parkway, the Beltway and Washington DC! Plus the new Silver Line Metro is less than a mile away and Dulles International and Reagan Airports are easily accessible. One of many “favorite things”… It is absolutely brilliant that the community was planned with easy access from both Dolley Madison Blvd. and Chain Bridge Road. It is so easy to head toward Tysons by making a quick right, using the “Chain Bridge Rd exit”. And it is so easy to head toward downtown Mclean, or DC, by making a similar quick right, from the “Rt 123-Dolley Madison” side. Never is there a need to make a left turn into traffic—what a great convenience! Convenient world-class shopping, dining & recreation at Tysons Corner, Tysons I and The Tysons Galleria. The McLean community offers something for everyone! The Dolly Madison branch library is so close and the McLean Community Center, with its fabulous Alden Theatre, offers art classes, bridge lessons, exhibits, and more. The Old Firehouse Teen Center is another popular gathering place, as is the Spring Hill Rec Center. In addition, Claude Moore Historic Farm Park is close by and so is one of a kind Clemyjontri Park. Claude Moore Farm is a real “working farm” maintained by the National Park Service. Wolf Trap Farm Park and the Kennedy Center are both just minutes away – in opposite directions!
