The Fairfax County Park Authority has completed the acquisition of a 5.45-acre property known as Spring Hill, located in the Dranesville District near the intersection of Spring Hill Road and Old Dominion Drive in McLean, Virginia.
The property was acquired from the Brzezinski family. The property, with both rolling terrain, informal trails, as well as level ground, currently preserves open space and holds potential for a future community park.
Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust said, “I am grateful to the Park Authority for preserving this property, and many other beautiful properties in our county, for the use of current residents and future generations. I also appreciate the Brzezinski family’s desire to protect the natural beauty and cultural significance of this property, and their willingness to work with the Park Authority to make sure that happened.”
The property was the residence of the Brzezinski family since 1977. Former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, his wife Emilie Brzezinski -- well-known in the art world for her creations of monumental wood sculpture -- and their children lived there. The family often hosted diplomatic gatherings with foreign leaders.
The property was purchased for $2.4 million funded through Park Bonds. The sale was coordinated with Washington Fine Properties and the deed was recorded in October 2020. For more information, contact the Public Information Office at 703-324-8662.
