Ballantrae Farms is Home to Washington’s Elite

While some of its homes were originally constructed decades ago, Ballantrae Farms remains one of the most exclusive places to call home in the DC area. These days, the McLean community is home to many of Washington’s elite.

That’s because it’s common to find large homes that sit on even larger, well-kept lots. Many of the homes are priced in the multi-million-dollar range, but some are priced even higher than that. 

Several of the homes in Ballantrae Farms are brick Colonials, but you may also find some grand Georgian-style homes in the neighborhood, as well as some Tudors. Buyers can generally choose from a four-, five-, or sometimes even six-bedroom home, but that’s not even the limit for this gracious neighborhood.

The homes often come with a large garage for storage and convenience, too. Inside, you’ll often find high ceilings, some hardwood flooring, and some walk-in closets.

Constructed in the mid 1980s, a Colonial-style home that was recently listed on the market in Ballantrae Farms contains five-bedrooms and 10 baths. It includes well upwards of 6,000 square feet of living space.

Another brick Colonial was constructed in the late 1970s, complete with more than 4,500 square feet of living space. An even larger budget, however, could result in a home with nine-bedrooms and 10-baths. 

Perhaps one of the grandest homes to hit the market in Ballantrae Farms includes more than 20,000 square feet of living space. This impressive, new construction estate sits on a 1.5-acre lot and includes garage space for up to 10 vehicles. The seven bedroom, 11.5-bath custom home has a domed hall, a guest house, as well as a swimming pool and spa. 

The affluent neighborhood has the advantage of sitting close to shopping, dining, and recreation in McLean. In addition, it’s close to high-ranking schools, major roadways, and public transportation.
