Where We Live: Kings Manor

Kings Manor is a neighborhood located off Dolley Madison Boulevard near Downtown McLean Shopping and Business District. The residents appreciate the convenient proximity to Tyson’s Corner Mall and Galleria, Washington DC, and Arlington. Commuters here can take advantage of easy access to I-495 and 2 major airports – Reagan National to the east and Dulles International to the west. Kings Manor residents attend the Langley School Pyramid which includes Church Hill Elementary, Cooper Middle, and Langley High School.
The majority of single-family brick town homes were built 40 years ago and are consistently sought-after, now more than ever. The style was developed by C.E. “Larry ” Reid, modeling the homes after the Old Town Alexandria and Georgetown townhomes. The four models of the development are very practical and smart in design, with location of the kitchen being the most notable difference. Many of the homes have bricked fencing around their flat courtyard style backyard. If you’re searching in the neighborhood for one of these delightful homes, you may even come across the model with the walk-out basement, a rare find and are quick to get scooped up! McLean attracts residents from all over the world, but residents of Kings Manor love the very peaceful and quiet setting that surrounds them there.
Kings Manor has an Active Home Owner’s Association that provides a fabulous park. Centrally located and surrounded by trees, lush shrubs and bushes, the park provides a private and peaceful place for activities and leisure. It includes 2 basketball courts, large covered picnic area with seating, a playground, and an open grassy area.
This little neighborhood has expanded over the years to include a newer development in the same style – Kings Court. These townhomes are larger in size with elevators and 2-car garages, and all the same charm!  All the residents can make use of local conveniences, with Dolly Madison Regional Library, McLean Park, and McLean Community Center just a breath away.
