McConnell is nice, but the quality of the homes is spotty. Most of the homes are 15+ years old and they are showing their age.
I would suggest looking at the adjacent Old Davidson (aka 'St. Alban's') neighborhood. The homes are newer (most are 5-10 years old), and the homes are higher quality. Pricing is comparable to McConnell, depending on whether it is a David Weekly home or a Cunnane Home. Depending on what you are looking for there are a couple of custom homes in the neighborhood as well, one built by John Marshall Custom Homes and the other by George A. Ford.
