Rare 1969 Jacobsen “Pod” House in Truro for Rent – $2,950/Month


Hugh Newell Jacobsen's Pod House

There are only five Skyview models in Truro.

Here’s an opportunity to rent one of only five Skyview models in the Truro neighborhood of Annandale. The home by Hugh Newell Jacobsen is often referred to as the “pod” house, with Jacobsen’s signature mix of traditional-style roof lines and more modern features such as large expanses of glass. “The two-level home features a breathtaking living room with soaring wood ceiling, a separate dining room and 2 bedrooms and 2 bath on the main level,” reads the owners’ rental site. “The full daylight, walkout lower level has 2 bedrooms, a full bath, separate laundry room, huge utility room, and recreation room. Wrapped by a deck on the upper level, walls of glass extend across the entire rear facade of the home.” The owners are looking for a two-year lease. You can schedule a time to view the home here.
