    Description

    Here is a rare chance to own a slice of classic mid-century modern history at an affordable price! With 1,312 square feet of living space, this 1950 home in Hollin Hills, Alexandria was designed by Charles M. Goodman, one of the preeminent progressive architects of the era and the creative force behind the community. A curved driveway sweeps in off Drury Lane, revealing a secluded Shangri-La of contemporary style. The split-level home with its low-pitched roof and wide overhangs is on an ungraded 0.34 acre lot, surrounded by lush vegetation and wild beauty. A massive chimney spans almost the width of the cubist-inspired house. Inside, the main living area embraces the great room concept with polished hardwood floors and an entire wall of uninterrupted floor-to-ceiling windows. It~s the classic modernist ethos of inviting the outside in!At one end of the large open space is a wide brick hearth, fireplace and matching firewood storage box, with Atomic Age wood paneling to the side. An open contemporary kitchen with finished concrete floor has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinets. There are two bedrooms on the lower level with new carpeting as well as huge window walls and glass doors leading directly outside. The two upstairs bedrooms have been opened up into one massive master sleep space with hardwood floors. In short, the entire home retains the classic Goodman mid-century modern feel. All it needs is some additional TLC, reflected in the as-is price. DescriptionsThe one-third acre lot itself is an inspiration, with mature trees, bamboo, patio, koi pond and rustic low brick walls coiling around the periphery. A cool storage cabin is tucked away in back and a charming wooden walkway leads to Voight Park next-door. One of the defining principals of Hollin Hills has always been the merging of home and nature. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and listen to the bird songs.
