My New Listing: 1971 Contemporary in Truro – $599K


Built by Miller & Smith and designed by Deigert & Yerkes—one of the leading mid-century modern architectural teams in the D.C. area, Truro is a beautiful wooded community of nearly 400 contemporary homes in Annandale.  My newest listing with my real estate partner Sean Satkus is this 1971 Forestview model. It is perfectly situated here on a .4 acre treed lot amid the rolling woodlands and parklands of the neighborhood. It is listed for $599K. You can see all the images here.


This updated 4 bedroom with 3 full bathroom features soaring wood ceilings, an oversized 1-car garage, a first-floor bedroom and bathroom, and a home theater/recreation room. A new roof was installed in 2014.


The main focus of the bi-level design is the upper level’s open dining-living room with the original wood cathedral ceilings and wood-burning fireplace.


The updated eat-in kitchen has a wall of glass overlooking the patio and wooded backyard. The top level of the 2,300 square foot home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, including the master suite.


The lower, or entrance level, features the home theatre/rec room outfitted with new, commercial-grade carpet and wood-burning fireplace, the fourth bedroom and full bathroom, utility room with new Samsung washer and dryer and access to the garage.


Original mid-century touches include vintage entrance and dining lighting fixtures and open staircase.


The community’s parklands are owned and maintained by the Truro Homeowners Association and contain paved trails, a creek that is crossed by the trails over nine bridges, and several playgrounds. They are entirely wooded.

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 new Mosaic entertainment district. Two Metro stops are less than four miles away.
