  • January 18th 2019

by Nena Perry-Brown

This week’s Best New Listings includes a mid-century modern house in Hollin Hills and an occupied loft in Logan Circle.

Mid-Century Modern House in the Hills

Hollin Hills is the Alexandria neighborhood where most of the homes were designed during the Mad Men-era, so many, like this split-level style contemporary house, give off a very mid-century modern vibe. A series of steps are arranged alongside this four-bedroom, walking into a wooden terrace ramp or into the upward-sloping backyard with an elevated patio area. On the upper level of the home, the white-walled living room has a paneled accent wall with a recessed fireplace and is open to the adjacent dining area, which has access to a screened-in porch. The U-shaped kitchen has butcher block countertops and a double-basin sink beneath a huge picture window. Three bedrooms share a bathroom on this level, each with a wall of windows. An additional bedroom and bathroom are on the above-grade lower level, which also has a living room with a full wall of windows.

A Leased Logan Circle Loft

With TOPA out of the way, this leased Logan Circle loft is hitting the market, offering the option of a primary residence or an investment property. The unit is inside the Northern Exchange building, originally constructed to house the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company and the switchboard for Northeast and Northwest DC. A 2013 condo conversion yielded this one-bedroom unit with 18 foot-high painted terra cotta ceilings with exposed pipes. A red brick accent wall hosts two oversized windows that flood the unit with natural light. A black industrial treaded metal staircase leads up to the open loft sleeping area, which sits above the kitchen.
