The Hollin Hills House & Garden Tour by Instagram (Photos)

Our favorite snaps of the charming Alexandria neighborhood.

Photographs by Kathleen Bridges.

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.
