Residential Land For Sale By Owner

3.7 Acres McLean, VA One Big Green Dream Home?

1346 & 1348 Ballantrae Lane , McLean, Virginia 22101 United States

The Hand Family is now accepting applications for the purchase of 2 buildable lots totaling 3.7 acres of land on Ballantrae Lane in McLean, VA. This land has been in the family for over 60 years and was originally part of the Ballantrae Farms Estate.

Our father John Milton Colton Hand was working for the State Department in the 1940s when he learned that the CIA was going to be built at Langley. Anticipating the potential of the area, he was fortunate to be able to purchase his first 5 acres of land in 1949. In order to build the original family home, power lines were brought in from the closest house the Kennedys famous Hickory Hill. Over time our parents acquired a total of 10 acres of stream frontage property that abutts the Countys 60 acre Pimmit Bend Park.

Fullbrook, the original 1950s family home and pool was designed by the well known architect Charles Goodman - a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. It was a fashionable and unique residence with authentic Japanese gardens, native dog wood and mountain laurel, a pool, tennis court, horse barn, riding ring and two horse fields. During the Kennedy era, when the family went on holidays in August, it was highly sought after for summer rentals. Its seclusion and private location made it ideal for many famous guests including Ambassadors and several well-known Senators.

After our parents passed away in 1998, we spent a considerable amount of time designing the development and conservation plans for the 10 acre property. Instead of subdividing the property into 10 build able lots, we decided to minimize the development and conserve 3 acres of land abutting Pimmit Run to enhance the riparian corridors for wildlife and divide the property into only 5 build able lots. Three lots were sold in 2004 and 2006. These two lots are the last pieces of land to be sold by the family.

The main house lot now comprises 2 acres and the pool, and the second lot comprises 1.7 acres. It is contiguous to the main house lot, undeveloped, fully wooded, and looks down on 100 yards of Pimmit Run stream frontage. Both lots are also protected with additional conservation area.

Although both lots are separately build able, we are ideally looking for one buyer to purchase both lots and build one dream green home. We will consider providing finance to a suitable buyer. But most importantly, we are looking for a buyer who will appreciate and enjoy the land as our family has for the past half century. We believe we are not owners per se but rather caretakers and we would like the next generation to feel the same about this special place and its wonderful wildlife. This is why we are asking for applications to be made prior to making an appointment to view the land.

Fullbrook is one of the last pieces of land of this type in the area if you want to feel as if you live in the country, and are close to nature, but are only minutes drive away from the City and Tysons Corner then this land may be for you, but we would like you to love and care about the wildlife and that includes the deer, the foxes, the raccoons, the opossums, the squirrels, the chipmunks, the snakes, and of course all the birds! To truly appreciate the beauty of this land, you need to walk through it. Please contact us for walkabout, and also please don't disturb the tenants in the old house. Thanks!
