Walking along the hilly, tree-shaded lanes of Hollin Hills, it’s hard to believe you’re less than ten miles from bustling downtown DC. Throw in the hundreds of sleek, angular midcentury-modern homes that dot the Alexandria neighborhood, and it’s not only geographics that are confounded, but time as well.

This past weekend, care of the third annual Hollin Hills House & Garden Tour, ten of these Charles Goodman-designed properties opened their doors and gates to hundreds of curious architecture oglers. If you missed out, no worries—we snapped some shots via Instagram to give you a feel for this enchanting neighborhood, all towering trees and tucked-away modernist treasures. Like what you see? Stay tuned—we spotted a handful of “for sale” signs as we wandered through the neighborhood, and will be back soon with the scoop on what’s on the market.

    Hollin Hill is an oasis in Fairfax County from the standard brick colonials you find in most neighborhoods.
