Where We Live: Birchwood

Birchwood is a Suburban neighborhood to Washington, DC metro area which consists of just over 80 homes in McLean, 22101. This community was founded in the 20s and has been rebuilt and renovated over the years. The community sits between the triangle of Kirby Rd, Old Dominion Drive and Birch Rd, conveniently located close to downtown McLean.

This neighborhood and the surrounding neighborhoods are common destinations for people who work in DC and choose to live outside of the city for lifestyle and commuting purposes. Those reasons are often the desire for a nice yard or to escape the hustle-and-bustle of the city. This neighborhood accomplishes that while still remaining just a short trip to DC. The neighborhood while being surrounded by major roads, keeps its suburban feel and slower tempo of life with quiet sub-streets and abundance of tree-life.

Birchwood is a subdivision within Chesterbrook and features many of the great amenities that inhabitants of this area enjoy. The neighborhood is less than half a mile to Chesterbrook Swim and Tennis Club. http://chesterbrookclub.com/about/. Many of the residents of the surrounding neighborhoods frequent this membership based recreational club known for its top ranked swim and dive team and seasonal tennis programs. You’re also close to several great parks, my favorite being Linway Terrace Park. I have a complete list of all my favorite nearby spots on my website found here: https://www.chesterbrookwoodsneighborhood.com/Nearby/. 

Birchwood is also close to Chesterbrook Elementary School, where both of my two children attend. This neighborhood also feeds to Longfellow Middle School and McLean High School, some of the best schools in the state, and highly ranked amongst the best public schools in the nation.

In 2017, 6 homes sold in this community, ranging from $760,000.00 for a 1962 rambler 4 bedroom, 3 bath to $1,900,000.00 for a new 5,800+ sqft Crafstman style home. The HBC Group at KW will soon list 6438 Noble Dr for $1,050,000. Check back soon for updates!
