Welcome to McLean
McLean is a great place to live. It also very versatile.
One part of town very close to Great Falls Park. A state park with scenic overlooks of the Potomac River, and large single family homes in wooded acreage.
In West McLean, the landscape resembles a small city. The Silver Line Metro Stop and Tysons Corner are easily accessible. Luxury shopping, dining and high rise buildings are the norm.
In between these two contrasts in the center of McLean is the “downtown” area. A cozy area with some of McLean’s signature shops, restaurants and commercial space.
Like the rest of Northern VA, the identity of McLean has changed with time.
During times of building and expansion, there has been great new developments in both McLean and neighboring towns.
There is usually a relatively small number of townhomes in McLean VA for sale, as the area is best known for luxury homes and high rise condos near Tysons Corner.
But, the townhome communities that are in McLean are beautiful. With classic colonial designs that are a trademark to the area, they are both impressive and convenient.
A townhome is a great way to enjoy being a resident if you want something low maintenance that is not in a condo building.
See below for the currently available inventory and also some of the more popular neighborhoods.
