1961 ‘Phoenix’ Flat-Roof MCM in Mantua – $699K

Mantua Phoenix

Here’s a home that was just listed that brings a real touch of California to the East Coast. This 1961 flat-roof mid-century modern home was done by Phoenix Builders and sits on half an acre in Mantua Hills in Fairfax, Virginia. With its flat-roof, walls of glass, clerestory windows and large brick-wall fireplace, the design epitomizes West Coast mid-century modern style albeit with a touch of the Mid-Atlantic: the red-brick exterior and its use in the two fireplaces. This 3 bed/3 bath 2,000 square foot home is listedĀ for $699K and is openĀ from 1 to 4 p.m on Sunday, Oct. 6.
