McLean Woman’s Club Holds Annual Kickoff Tea

The Woman’s Club of McLean held its annual “Wintertime in August” kickoff tea on last week, to preview its 48th annual Holiday Homes Tour, which will take place in early December.

This year’s tour will feature four large houses in Langley Farms, a historic McLean neighborhood just off Dolley Madison Boulevard.

The event was held at a large antebellum house at 1101 Chain Bridge Road, called Langley Ordinary, which was recently restored. The house is now a National Historic Trust building and is on Fairfax County’s list of historic sites.

The 2014 Homes Tour host Doug DeLuca and Matt Bronczek, his business partner, hosted the event.

The four houses on December’s tour are all custom designs built on earlier home sites. Each house will be decorated with the holidays in mind and will highlight family life in McLean. The tour will take place on Thursday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Tickets go on sale in early October and will be available at local businesses, including Mesmeralda’s Gifts of McLean, Karin’s Florist of Vienna and Great Dogs of Great Falls, or may be obtained on the tour day at one of the featured homes.
