Mclean Gardens (Washington, DC)

This Fellow Looks a Little Bit Chilly McLean Gardens is a large complex of garden style condominiums west of Wisconsin Avenue near the National Cathedral.  And throughout the complex, there are statues of sort of scantily clad folks who must really be ready for spring to get here!  This one sits on the corner of 39th and Newark Streets NW.   Right now, thre are only two units for sale at McLean Gardens.  While inventory is quite low right now, we expect more condos to begin coming onto the market as we get into spring.  If you are  considering a condo unit in Washington,  I'd be glad to help you find one.  Call me at 202-549-5167 or send an email to housepat@mac.com

When you are pushing Open House arrows into the groud at McLean Gardens, you never know who you will encounter.  I met this turqoise person (a bit androginous) on the corner of Macomb Street and 39th, just sitting there minding his/her own business.  There are at least for statues similar to this one throughout the complex.  I wonder if they conveyed when the McLean family sold their old estate? And considering the weather was a bit wet and dreary, it was a good afternoon!

Back when McLean Gardens was making the transition from rentals to condominiums, it got a little messy.  There was an extended battle between the feisty tenants and the developers who couldn't really do the conversion without them.  But with all of their early difficulties, McLean Gardens has become a wonderful place to live and own. It is situated on a 43 acre estate just off Wisconsin Avenue, in the shadow of the National Cathedral.  For decades, it was the summer home of newspaper owner, John McLean, who lived and entertained lavishly  in a Greek Revival mansion designed by John Russell Pope.  There was also a cast iron swimming pool, 18-hold golf course, stables, tennis courts, and  When McLean died, his only son Edward and wife Evalyn spend his fortune on such trinkets as the Hope ...

Our Function as Realtors is to Provide Information for Our Clients' Analysis Analysis Is the Key to Making Good Decisions General George Custer I just read a very useful blog by Bill Marriott, CEO of Marriott Hotels et al about analysis as the key to making good decisions.  He referenced General George Custer, famous for being annihilated in Custer's Last Stand at the Battle of Little Bighorn before the turn of the 19th century. He described Custer as a somewhat impetuous, but brilliant, officer, who became Brigadier General in the United States Army and was an important contributor to the Union victory at the Battle of Gettysburg by the age of 23. As Bill Marriott noted Custer was always anxious to charge forward and get the job done. At the Battle of LIttle Big Horn, Custer should hav...

McLean Gardens is a residential neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C., bounded by Rodman Street NW to the north, Idaho Avenue to the south, Wisconsin Avenue to the east, and 39th Street NW to the west. At McLean Gardens, children still can meet each other on the playground, gardens can be planted in flower beds, dogs enjoy long walks with their owners on the sloping hills and yet the restaurants and shops and excitement of the city lie less than a block away.  The National Cathedral sits just a few blocks away as an exquisite addition to the landscape.      The sense of community extends beyond the layout of the development to the residents themselves. Many of the homeowners participate in association activities. Over the years, they've organized everything from bridge clubs and t...
