Just Listed: Rare ‘Pod House’ in Truro
I just listed this extremely rare and meticulously maintained and renovated Hugh Newell Jacobsen-designed “Pod House” in Truro. It is only one of six and known formally known as Skyview model. Jacobsen, FAIA, studied under Louis Kahn at Yale and then worked for Philip Johnson before launching his own firm in 1958. The house is offered at $765,000. (Photos by Tod Connell.)
The design is marked by walls of glass and three soaring redwood-clad pavilions, including one over the living room and one over the master bedroom with loft.
The full wrap-around deck connects the house with wooded view.
The high-end renovated gourmet kitchen features Miele appliances, Neff custom cabinets and mid-century modern appropriate cork flooring.
The master bathroom features Porcelenosa tile, Grohe hardware and separate spa-like shower and soaking tub.
The large, finished lower level includes a family room, three bedrooms, second full bathroom, large storage space and separate laundry room.
Built by Miller & Smith, Truro is located in a beautiful wooded community of nearly 400 contemporary homes in Annandale.
The community’s park lands are owned and maintained by the Truro Homeowners Association and contain paved trails, a creek and several playgrounds. The association also maintains tennis courts, a swimming pool and a two-story community center with meeting spaces. Located just minutes from the Beltway, the neighborhood provides easy access to George Mason University, Tysons Corner, downtown Fairfax and the Mosaic entertainment district. Two Metro stops are less than four miles away.
