Where We Live: Grass Ridge

Grass Ridge is a large Suburban neighborhood which consists of around 100 homes in McLean, 22101. The community abuts Kent Gardens Park between Westmoreland and Old Dominion, north of Kirby Road. This neighborhood is close to both Downtown McLean, Arlington, and Falls Church, with all the great features they have to offer.

Kent Gardens Park is a wonderful place to spend a sunny day, with it’s trails and scenic Pimmit Run running through it. There is also nearby Kent Gardens Recreation Club which you can learn more about on their website: http://www.kgrc.org/. These places give this area an “away from the big city” feel, even with their proximity to DC.

In Downtown McLean, there are plenty of great things to do, including coming to see me at our office at 6820 Elm St! Keep an eye out for our monthly Community Charity Champions event at Pulcinella Italian Host also in downtown McLean. If you’re looking for a quick lunch, I enjoy stopping by Sweetgreen and Sweet Leaf Café both for their excellent Salads and Grain Bowls. For a more formal occasion, I recommend Capri Ristorante Italiano or J. Gilberts. If you want to cook at home, you can pick up groceries at Giant Food, Balducci’s, and stop by The Organic Butcher for a steak.

Arlington also has a lot to offer, one of my favorites being Pastries by Randolph in the Lee Heights Shopping Center (http://leeheightsshops.com/).  It is a great place to pick up something sweet on your way home!

Falls Church city is a very friendly little city. On Saturday mornings, they hold a farmer’s market. You can also get a great cup of coffee at Rare Bird, or pick up lunch from well-loved Taco Bamba.  The area is bike friendly, with the W&OD trail access at the end of Westmoreland Street in Falls Church. Wave if you see me on the trail!

There’s also the great Tysons Corner mall and Galleria located outside the beltway, home to great shopping and restaurants.

 In 2017, just 2 homes sold in this community at $1,299,000 and $1,670,000. The HBC Group at KW will soon list 6510 Byrnes Dr for $1,675,000. Please check back soon for listing details!
