This McLean Condo Building was Designed with History in Mind
Truly designed with history in mind, The Signet brings timeless elegance and authenticity to McLean. The condo building was inspired by Jeffersonian-style architecture, such as what you’ll find on the campus of the University of Virginia.
While the building itself is new, its design makes it look like it’s been there for generations. Developed by a U-Va graduate and designed by Franck & Lohsen Architects, The Signet was built to appeal to those wanting to downsize from a larger home.
That’s not to say the units are small, as the average unit offers 1,800 square feet of living space, as well as some private outdoor space with a patio or balcony. With an almost mind-boggling 90 floor plans to choose from, buyers are able to narrow down the choices to find the unit that best fits their own individual lifestyle needs.
Some of the units are two-level layouts, which can work well for those with families. In all, The Signet makes room for around 120 condos, complete with high ceilings, solid oak flooring, Lutron shades and Thermador appliances.
Buyers will find things like large kitchen islands and even a den with some of the units. Most condos additionally come with two assigned parking spaces.
The U-shaped building was designed to wrap around a landscaped courtyard with a fire pit, grilling stations, lounge space and dining tables. The property also offers a catering kitchen and residents’ lounge, as well as a fitness center with massage rooms, a sauna and a yoga room. In addition, amenities extend to full concierge service and a staffed front desk.
Not far from area retailers and grocery stores, the property is also within walking distance of several restaurants and a local library. Buses stop right outside the buildings, making it easy for commuters to reach two area Metro stations.
