‘California Contemporaries’ for Sale, Rent in Holmes Run Acres

I am back in D.C., so here’s some local fare from Holmes Run Acres in Falls Church. I’ll bring you more in-depth highlights of my trip to LA (Eames House, Stahl House, mid-century eats, etc.) during the next week or so. I’m also still posting tidbits from the trip on Twitter, so check that out as well.

I told an Eames House docent, David, who is an architect, that many of the modern homes here in the D.C. area were designed and marketed as “California contemporaries.” He got a kick out of that. They don’t use that term in California.
1956 3/2 – $569K – Expanded two-level with pool and free-standing fireplace for that retro California feel.
1951 3/2 – $435K – The price on this updated ranch has dropped $10K.
Here’s a 2/1 for rent at $1,950 per month in the National Register of Historic Places-designated neighborhood.
