"West McLean!= Norman Rockwell Perfect!"

After living personally in West McLean for over 15 years it is clear that this is the best neighborhood in McLean. It is a mix of older 1940's built capes and New homes that blend well and make for charming streets that others come it to walk. It is the ONLY neighborhood that you can safely walk to all the downtown shops, resturants, health clubs and both elementary school and high school. It is only 1.0 mile from the coming metro that will be completed 2013. It is safe, friendly and convenient to everything. Commuting from here to DC is easy. West McLean feeds the top schools in the nation. Run don't walk at any chance to live here. It is called the village for a reason. If you want massive lots or enormous homes this isn't for you. If you like to walk and know your neighbors it is. Come see for yourself. Park your car and walk the neighborhood yourself.
