Mid-Century Modern in McLean


I spent some time this week exploring neighborhoods in McLean. Most people associate McLean with mega McMansions. While that is by and large the case,  there are many mid-century modern and contemporary homes in the area. I love the mix of mid-century modern homes in Braewood on Shipman Lane and Nesbitt Place, which are located here.

Shipman Ln

Braewood in McLean has a variety of mid-century modern style homes. The house pictured at top is on Nesbitt Place. This home is on Shipman Lane.

However, this small cluster is seeing its mid-century homes get torn town and replaced with you know what. See the changes that occurred at 6807 Nesbitt Place and 1104 Shipman Ln.

Grass Ridge

The Grass Ridge neighborhood is filled with funky mid-century split levels, including this four-level split pictured above that is listed for $695K.
