Where We Live: Grass Ridge

June 23, 2021


Grass Ridge is a quiet neighborhood that consists of homes built in the 1950s as Bi-levels, Split levels and Ramblers. The location is sought after for new building construction, and various homes have incorporated more modern and sleek architecture. Grass Ridge is set apart from other areas due to its blending of older and newer architectural styles. Many of the homes in this neighborhood have carports, paved driveways, and spacious backyards. 

Living in Grass Ridge, residents have the best of both worlds. Though the neighborhood is close to McLean’s major roads, it is also nestled away near many of McLean’s parks and recreational areas, such as Kent Gardens Park and Kent Gardens Recreational Club. Because it is tucked away from the main road, Grass Ridge gives residents the feeling of being outside of the hustle and bustle of northern Virginia. At the same time, the neighborhood is just 5 miles from Tysons Corner, which offers residents with numerous restaurants, businesses and activities just a short drive away. The location is also ideal because of its proximity to Old Dominion Dr, 495, 66, and the GW Parkway.

Grass Ridge is also near McLean’s best rated public schools, including Kent Gardens Elementary, Longfellow Middle School and McLean High School. The neighborhood is close to several private schools as well. In addition, it is less than 3 miles to McLean’s community center, which offers classes and activities for all ages.  

 In the past 180 days, 2 properties have sold within Grass Ridge. 6515 Byrnes Drive sold for $878,000, and 6602 Beverly Avenue sold for 1.8 million. While there are currently 3 active properties in the neighborhood, two have gone under contract. 6520 Beverly Avenue is the most recent property to go on the market by HBC Group’s Karen Briscoe. With 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 living areas and a gorgeous backyard, this home is one of the many highly desirable properties in the neighborhood. The home has also been expanded, and many of the rooms have been updated. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to live in Grass Ridge, which offers comfort, proximity and convenience!
