Vintage Mid-Century Modern in Forest Hills and Other New Listings

Forest Hills2

With spring approaching, more listings are coming on the market, including a number of mid-century modern homes. This untouched (the kitchen has starburst Formica) home in the Forest Hills neighborhood of D.C. is listed for $889K. The 3 bedroom/3 bath 1962 home with pool is being sold “as-is.” The soaring roof line of the living room and the stone exterior evokes the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright rather the straight, spare lines of Mies.

Here are a few other new listings. All are from 1961. One is a mid-century in the trees of Mohican Hills in Glen Echo Heights listed at $899K. This listing is for a Charles Goodman-designed home in Hollin Hills. It is listed for $724K. And this listing is for a Phoenix Builders’ flat-roof mid-century in Mantua Hills in Fairfax. It is on a half acre with a pool and listed for $675K. Looking forward to see what other listings “bloom” as the weather warms.
