$100,000 Above For a Goodman Ranch
This mid-century modern ranch-style house, designed by architect Charles Goodman, has the prestige of being located in the Hollin Hills section of Alexandria, and a buyer was willing to pay for that prestige. The home recently sold for more than $100,000 above its original asking price. A brick partition at the flagstone-paved foyer doubles as a fireplace facing the living room, which has a wall of stacked windows. The owner's bedroom also has stacked windows beside a brick accent corner, and another bedroom/office has a shallow floor-to-ceiling bay window. Out back, there are steps up to multiple elevated patio areas and an accessory studio with a pitched ceiling and clerestory windows.
