1953 Atomic Ranch in Pine Spring – $445K

Pine Spring sign
Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend.  I came across this 1953 atomic ranch listed as a rambler in the multiple listing system. The three bedroom/one bath ranch is located in Pine Spring in Falls Church. It has some varying roof lines, including the shed roof on the prominent carport. From the few pictures and agent description, it looks like there are updates to the kitchen and bathroom. The 121-home community was built by the Luria brothers, who also developed most of nearby Holmes Run Acres. The homes in Pine Spring were designed by Arthur Keyes, Francis Donald LethbridgeChloethiel Woodard Smith and Nicholas Satterlee. See vintage images of the mid-century modern community from 1950s and ’60s here.
