Inside Roberta Flack’s Former Home in Hollin Hills

Celebrity history, midcentury style, and a sweet backyard pool for $869,000.

Midcentury modern architect Charles Goodman isn’t the only big name associated with this 1951 Hollin Hills home—according to the listing, it was also once home to both poet/musician Gil Scott-Heron and iconic ’70s singer Roberta Flack, who was raised in Arlington and got her start performing at Mr. Henry’s Restaurant in Capitol Hill in the late 1960s. Celeb-pedigree aside, the four-bedroom home also boasts a double-height wall of windows that overlooks the huge slate and stone patio, 30-gallon granite pool, and a koi pond.

1927 Marthas Road is listed for $869,000. Take a look inside below, then get the complete tour here.
