Sold: Modern Oasis in Hollin Hills – $907,500K
I am excited to be listing this one-of-a-kind expanded and updated Charles Goodman mid-century modern home in the award-winning community of Hollin Hills. The original 1953 Unit 5B home is at center with a central fireplace core and raised roof with clerestory windows over the bathroom. The upper-level is cantilevered over the ground level. The two additions by the previous owners (1966 and 1973) match the flat-roof Miesien feel of the original Goodman design.
The current (and only second) owners have transformed the nearly 3,000 square foot home into a modern oasis: incorporating a blue stone patio with pool on the lush and private .41 acre lot and renovating the interior with high-end modern appliances and other finishes.
The 4 bedroom/3 bathroom home includes a master suite with extensive closets with Elfa shelving and a wall of glass with direct access to the serene patio and pool area.
The master bath was renovated with a TOTO toilet and JADO fixtures and German tile floors with radiant heating.
In addition to the master suite, the upper level features three additional bedrooms and one bathroom, which has soaring ceilings and similar top of the line finishes, including an Arne Jacobsen-designed VOLA faucet.
The home’s expansive public spaces include an open dining-living room.
A family room with fireplace, which is the core of the original Goodman design.
And a library/sitting area with walls of insulated glass. The windows have been updated throughout the entire house.
The kitchen features ultra-modern cabinets with Silestone countertop and Bosch oven and ceramic cooktop, ASKO dishwasher and Jenn-Air refrigerator/freezer.
The flat-roof home features a rare carport in the neighborhood and long driveway for plenty of guests, extensive storage and washer/dryer on the main living level. A bottom level room with a full bathroom has a separate entrance and can serve as an excellent nanny/in-law suite.
Hollin Hills, comprised of 450 modernist homes with 30 acres of parkland and a pool and tennis club, is just 5 miles south of Old Town Alexandria, less than 10 to National Airport and 13 to Capitol Hill. The Fairfax County neighborhood has been recognized as one of the groundbreaking modernist suburban communities to be developed post-World War II.
