Everyone seems to be talking about the report that Joe Biden and his wife Jill rented a luxury home in McLean for $20,000 a month.

So, what about McLean makes a $20,000 a month rental even possible? We can start with the big names who live there. The home Biden is renting is owned by the Chairman and CEO of Capitol Investment Corp. IV, Mark Ein. Mark Ein also owns the Washington Kastles and is a well-known entrepreneur in the D.C. area.

Lockheed Martin’s CEO, Marillyn Hewson, purchased a home in McLean last year. McLean is home to the rich and powerful including CEOs, NFL players, politicians and even family dynasties. It’s no surprise that the city just minutes from D.C., Arlington and Tyson’s Corner can command a $20,000 a month rental.

It’s also home to some of the region’s most expensive homes. Stately mansions with every luxury you could wish for line the McLean landscape. These luxuries include wine cellars, tennis courts, pools, personal gyms, full spas, elevators and even separate guest homes.

This week’s feature home is located on one of the most prestigious streets in McLean. 1181 Ballantrae features a Versailles styled pool and plaza, a gym, sauna, wine cellar and a beautiful bar.
