Alcoa Care-free Home in Hollin Hills to be Auctioned Friday

If you have always wanted to own one of the roughly two dozen Charles Goodman-designed Alcoa Care-free Homes built around the country, the one in Hollin Hills is being auctioned this Friday (Feb. 21). The auction, according to the public notice, will be held at 11:30 am outside the main entrance to the building housing the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, VA located at 4110 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, VA 22030. The house is located at 7801 Elba Rd.  Goodman’s design to promote the use of aluminum in building was pictured on the cover of Better Homes and Garden in the October 1957 issue.

Here are some photos of the house from a number of years ago.
