Situated right next to the quaint downtown area, West McLean is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods. Many of the homes in West McLean are new builds and feature craftsman style and  colonial architecture. Most recently, builders have leaned towards a more contemporary aesthetic, which features large windows, geometric balance, and open floor plans. 

The subdivision is a short distance from shops, restaurants and businesses located in downtown McLean. In fact, the location boasts a Walk Score of 79, which is considered very walkable: https://www.walkscore.com/score/1514-cedar-ave-mclean-va-22101. The community contains many family businesses and restaurants in addition to must-have shops such as Giant Grocery, McLean Hardware, and Total Wine. Tysons is less than 3 miles away and offers several regional malls with extensive shopping, top quality restaurants and entertainment. The Silver Line metro has several stops in Tysons which will transport you to points south and east to Reagan Airport and Washington DC and points west and north to Dulles Airport. West McLean is the perfect location because it offers close access to everything in northern Virginia while also maintaining a cozy and charming atmosphere. 

West McLean is close to local routes such as Old Dominion Dr, Chain Bridge Road and Dolley Madison Blvd. The Dulles Toll Road and I-495 are about a mile away, and the GW Parkway is just 10 minutes away. In West McLean, residents have quick access to every major route in the area. 

The neighborhood is part of the Fairfax County highly recognized school pyramid of Franklin Sherman Elementary, Longfellow Middle, and McLean High. Dolley Madison Library and McLean Community Center offer outstanding programing.  Lewinsville Park is home to McLean Day, several ball fields and offers community gardens.
