Where We Live: Carlin Terrace McLean

Over the years, these “Where We Live” blogs have continued to provide valuable information about certain areas. Insight from someone who has lived in Northern Virginia almost all of their life, gives clients the necessary assurance that this is the place to be! 

Once again, we have a beautiful spot to settle down in the heart of McLean. Particularly, 1611 East Avenue of Carlin Terrace near Linway Terrace Park. This is more than just a park for McLean residences. With a new turf field, this is the perfect place to spend some time outdoors! Other activities available at this park include basketball, tennis, baseball, and a fully equipped playground. This park also is home to many little league teams on the weekend. If you decide to take a day off from all of this athletic activity, there is always the option of visiting the historical site of Fort Marcy. Located just off the GW parkway, and only a short ride away it acted as a fort to defend our nation’s capital during the Civil War. These are just a few of the many diverse activities that this beautiful area has to offer. 

A highlight of the other blogs, are the schools, this blog is no different. Year after year, the McLean public school system is ranked nationally as one of the best. Here is a link for more information.  https://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools/virginia/districts/fairfax-county-public-schools/mclean-high-school-20452 Whether you are looking for the place to start a family, or sell your home because your family has all moved out, the HBC Group is ready and more than happy to assist in any way. 

Carlin Terrace is a neighborhood of 23 homes on East Ave and Munhall Ct. No home has sold since March of 2013, when 1611 last sold! Now 1611 East Ave is back on the market. This home is a 5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Rambler. It features a lovely, inviting front porch, a renovated Kitchen, and a great commute!
