Great Falls Manor is conveniently situated in McLean between Great Falls Street and the Dulles Toll Road. The homes in this enclave were built in the 1970s  and consist of split levels and  colonials. Most of the homes have one or two car garages and are located on at least a quarter of an acre, allowing room for outside living.

The neighborhood is located in an excellent area with close local shopping.   Only 2 miles away, the McLean center shopping district includes McLean Hardware, Giant Grocery, Total Wine, and various family-owned restaurants and coffee houses.  Tysons is only 3 miles away and offers excellent regional shopping, restaurants and entertainment. 

Great Falls Manor is not only near the Dulles Toll Road, but residents can hop onto I-495 Capital Beltway, I-66 or Route 7 in just a few minutes. The McLean metro is under 2 miles away and has several stops in Tysons, which transports people east towards Washington DC, or west towards Dulles Airport. Great Falls Manor is right in the middle of everything northern Virginia offers.

The neighborhood is also a part of Fairfax County’s impressive school district, which includes Kent Gardens Elementary, Longfellow Middle and McLean High.  Kent Gardens boasts the highly acclaimed partial French Immersion program. 

The neighborhood is less than a mile from several parks, including Pimmit Run Stream Valley Park, which features an 8 mile trail that leads into the Potomac River. Other nearby facilities and recreation include the private Tuckahoe Recreation Club which offers year round indoor swimming pool and fitness facilities and outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts. 

In 2021, one property was sold in Great Falls Manor by HBC Group’s Karen Briscoe. 1833 Baldwin Dr sold for $1,062,00, a record breaking price in the neighborhood. The property is situated on a quarter of an acre with 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a 2-car garage, a wood-burning fireplace, and a spacious backyard with a patio and pergola for entertaining. With so many homes that offer both space and proximity, Great Falls Manor has it all!
