Farm your niche market and cover all the happenings in your neighborhood
Hidden among all of the three level colonials in Fairfax County you will find a few pockets of Mid Century Modern homes (MCM). One of those neighborhoods is Hollin Hills in Alexandria. Designed over 50 years ago by architectCharles Goodwin the neighborhood was considered avant-garde at the time as it broke the traditional bounds of building in the area. With clean lines and walls of windows the homes were designed to obscure the lines between the inside and the outside. Originally the area was popular with Washington urbanite and now the second generation of fans of MCM are buying the homes almost as soon as they come on the market.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time. The developer of the Hollin Hills property, Robert Davenport purchased the land at an auction for $550 and worked in conjunction with Goodwin to lay out the plan for the community. The 457 homes are spread out on the 225 acre wooded site and they were placed on the lots at various angles instead of lining them all facing the streets. The simple homes are designed based on four-foot modular units so the plans could be expanded easily and with relatively little cost. The community has maintained its original feel due in larger part to an active civic association which has applied for Historic Designation to continue to protect the area from over zealous development.
One of the homes was recently featured on a segment of HGTV and no sooner than the program aired was the home on the market and under contract. Even though the homes were designed over 50 years ago the concept of living in harmony with nature is even more important today. Currently there are 3 homes on the market today ranging in price from $579,000 to $749,900. If you are a fan of mid-century modern then this is a neighborhood that you don't want to miss.
