A Vienna based developer, Sekas Homes, has purchased The Iris Lady’s 5.26 acre property for $2,375,000 in the name of Iris Hills LC. The property was sold by the estate of Margaret Thomas, known to many in our community as The Iris Lady for her remarkable garden. Margaret lived to be 89 and died on May 25th 2011, in the very same week that many of her irises achieved their annual full bloom.
Sekas Homes filed an application in December of 2013 requesting that they be granted a rezoning from R1 to R2 to allow them to build nine homes on the 5.26 acre parcel, a dwelling unit per acre ratio of 1.71. The county staff has recommended that the application be granted. The proposed community would be named “Iris Hills” and reside on a newly created roadway “Margaret Thomas Lane” which would be the only access to Lawyers Road. The three existing access points would no longer exist, and there are no plans to add a break in the median.

We have owned & operated Williams Realty here in Fairfax County since 2004 and selling real estate in NoVA since 1987. The reason we started our own brokerage was so that we would have the flexibility to put money back into the pockets of our clients and in doing so enhance their buying experience.
When you think of Northern Virginia Real Estate experts, think of Williams Realty.
