Forest Hills: ‘Design Hub Tucked into the Park’

Today’s Washington Post “Where We Live” column featured the Forest Hills neighborhood in D.C. Situated between Rock Creek Park and Connecticut Avenue, the neighborhood is home to a variety of mid-century modern homes, including the only Richard Neutra-designed home in D.C. (pictured above.) The home sits at the end of a dead-end, pot-hole marked road surrounded by the trees of Soapstone Valley Park, just west of Rock Creek. D.C.-based architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen’s work also is represented in the neighborhood, dubbed by the Post as a “design hub” and “architectural medley.”
