Fan of Alexandria’s award-winning midcentury enclave Hollin Hills? This Charles Goodman-designed home hits all of the neighborhood’s classic details: light-pouring glass walls, modernist architecture, a compact yet open layout, and thoughtful positioning designed to showcase the natural landscape while retaining privacy. Beyond the signatures of the neighborhood, highlights of this particular home include a “butterfly” roof, an updated kitchen, and international influences such as the Japanese-style soaking tub and shoji screens. The property boasts a proud past, too—it’s been spotlighted on the neighborhood’s annual house tour twice, and was featured in the Washington Post. It’s listed at $819,900. Read on for a brief tour, then head to Long & Foster for the full scoop.
