The Summerwood Community is a small community of 59 expansive single family homes located in the 22102 zip code of McLean. The homes are large, primarily of the Colonial style, and built in the early to mid 80s. The homes sit on spacious lots in a cozy wooded neighborhood. The neighborhood sits between Great Falls and Tysons Corner with easy access to the Dulles Access road and 495. It also sits off Lewinsville Road and Old Dominion Dr, giving it easy access to some great parks as well as downtown McLean.

Summerwood is a common destination for the DC employee who wants a slower more scenic homestead. The homes, often with more than 4000 square feet of livable space sit on spacious green lots and are surrounded with the tall beautiful trees native to the east coast. The greenery is a big part of the appeal of this neighborhood, giving the neighborhood a calming, cozy feel.

Summerwood is centrally located in Northern Virginia, placed just north of Tyson’s Corner Center, the largest mall in the area. Tyson’s Corner Center, and neighboring Tyson’s Galleria, have combined over 300 stores and restaurants. Some of the great restaurants located here are Eddie V’s, Barrel and Bushel, and The Palm. They also feature world class shopping with stores like Saks, Kate Spade, and the Ritz-Carlton.

Another great element of this neighborhood is it’s access. With it’s proximity to Lewinsville and Old Dominion, you have quick access inside the beltway, including Downtown McLean and Arlington. This also gets you quickly to the George Washington Memorial Parkway, taking you into the heart of DC. You’re also located between Dulles International Airport, located west off the adjacent Dulles access road, and Reagan National Airport, found right off GW Parkway. You’re also just a 3.1 mile drive from the amazing Wolf Trap National Park, venue to countless amazing shows. A list of which can be found at their website: http://www.wolftrap.org/

Just two homes sold in this community in 2017, at $1,335,000 and $1,515,000 respectively. This neighborhood has low turnover, to match it’s low inventory. We do currently have a property Coming Soon in this highly desirable neighborhood.
