Historic Garden Week Tour - McLean
Named for John Roll McLean, owner and publisher of The Washington Post during the early 20th century, McLean is known for its luxury homes and high-end shopping destinations and is home to numerous diplomats, business owners and high-ranking government officials. The tour includes a mix of historic, traditional and contemporary homes ranging from a home built in the 1750s with ties to the Revolution and used as a hospital during the Civil War, to a contemporary Japanese-influenced home built on a hillside with terraced gardens, a pool and patio that are perfect for entertaining. The tour includes private gardens with water features, sculptures, outdoor lighting and sound systems, inviting stone pathways and landscapes with mature trees including the oldest and largest sycamore tree in Fairfax County. Enjoy exploring three centuries of homes and gardens in Northern Virginia.
