Named for John Roll McLean, owner and publisher of The Washington Post during the early 1900s, McLean is known for its luxury homes, high-end shopping destinations and is home to diplomats, business owners and government officials. This driving and walking tour features a six-acre estate with extensively landscaped grounds surrounding a large Colonial Revival manor house built in 1925 and a restored farmhouse. There are outdoor entertaining areas, a swimming pool, a sunken tennis court and a tree house with its own playground. At another elegant estate, visitors will enjoy an acre of gardens framed by evergreens. The step-down terrace overlooking an English carriage house and vine covered pergola is surrounded by flowering trees and fountains to complete this oasis. In nearby Vienna, explore 95 acres of ornamental display gardens, the Korean Bell Garden and native plant collections at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens.
