1954 Modernized Mid-Century in Lake Barcroft – $1.499 Million
A couple of my earliest readers have listed their house in Lake Barcroft in Falls Church and I wanted to highlight it here. The owners took a mid-century rambler with 165 feet of lake frontage and completed a custom renovation in 2009 that won the Grand Prize Capitol COTY Award. I like the soaring living, dining and gallery space with wall of glass overlooking the lake (pictured below). The house has a high-end gourmet kitchen, custom lighting and designer concrete flooring. The lush landscaping includes Brazilian blue slate patios and walkways and reclaimed Pennsylvania stone for retaining walls on lower levels. You can see more photos of this oasis on the water here.
