1318 Elsinore Avenue Rented

The home at 1318 Elsinore Avenue in the McLean Hamlet has been rented.  The lease is for 12 months and the rent per month is $3,800.  There are three other homes currently listed for rent in the McLean Hamlet, two are located on Agin Court, and another at 1308 Elsinore Avenue.  Another neighbor of mine will be renting their home later in December, which will bring the number of rentals on Agin Court to three. Really, I’m not a bad neighbor!  I rake my leaves, and have a snow blower to clear sidewalks.  Contact me if you want to live in a great location.

1301 Macbeth Street Under Contract

The home under construction at 1301 Macbeth Street in the McLean Hamlet is under contract. Evergreene Homes is building the home, and had it listed in MRIS for $1,541,000 until withdrawing the listing when demolition started in October. I represent the buyers who have the home under contract, and look forward to having clients as new neighbors in early 2018.

Demolition Starts at 1301 Macbeth Street

Evergreene Homes has started demolition of the home at 1301 Macbeth Street. Delivery of the new home is expected in the summer of 2018.

Demolition started early this morning of the home at 1301 Macbeth Street in the McLean Hamlet. It does not take long to bring down a home, as seen in this video.


A new home will be built on the site by Evergreene Homes.  By the end of the day, only a pile of rubble was left on the property.

Two Home Sales Reported in the McLean Hamlet

There are two home sales to report in the McLean Hamlet.  The home at 8004 Birnam Wood Drive sold for $900,000 on October 6.  The home at 1305 Oberon Way sold for $1,025,000 on October 11.

8004 Birnam Wood Drive was listed for sale on July 14, 2017, at a price of $959,000.  The home was listed with 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.  It was on the market for 46 days before receiving a contract, and the price had been reduced to $925,000 at the time it went under contract. It was listed by TTR Sothebys.

1305 Oberon was listed for sale on September 8, 2017, and went under contract on the same day.  It was listed with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. It was listed by McEnearney Associates.

8026 Birnam Wood Drive Sold for $825,000

There was a lot of activity recently at 8026 Birnam Wood Drive, moving trucks loaded furniture, junk haulers took away lots of trash and debris, and a charity van picked up a donation of furniture from the driveway.  A neighbor asked me if it was true that this home at the corner of Falstaff Road and Birnam Wood Drive would be torn down, noting that the gas line had been disconnected in the front yard.   I cannot confirm what will happen to the property, but according to the Fairfax County Department of Tax Administration website, the property sold on September 1, 2017 for $825,000. The county site says that the sale was a “Handyman special / below average condition”, which indicates that the sale price was below expected market value.
