Sun filled, spacious and sophisticated Salona Village brick colonial. Serene premier neighborhood in the heart of McLean. Leafy neighborhood feels like a country lane, yet it’s a 10-minute walk to downtown McLean, with its myriad shops and numerous restaurants from coffee shops to fine dining.

Continuing high end improvements keep the home fresh and up to date. More than $90,000 in improvements over last 5 years, including kitchen and bath remodels, refinishing floors, lighting and more. The flexible floor plan suits today’s lifestyles. It’s sited on a level, landscaped lot with fully fenced back yard.
