This Week's Find: The Home For DC's Mad Men Fans: Figure 1

Northern Virginia’s Hollin Hills neighborhood is where DC area Mad Men fans should live. The 1950s brainchild of Robert Davenport and architect Charles M. Goodman, Hollin Hills is home to the type of mid-century modern homes you can catch Sunday night on AMC. This Week’s Find is one of those homes.

The large expanse of windows drew owner Karolyn Stuver to the three-bedroom house she has called home for 20 years. Floor-to-ceiling windows became Charles Goodman’s calling card when he was designing many of the 400 or so homes in Hollin Hills.

“It’s really the light — the windows, the way the house is sited,” she told UrbanTurf of the house situated on Martha’s Road in Alexandria — a street reportedly named after the architect’s mother.

An expansion and kitchen renovation completed last year finish off the feeling of wide open spaces and clean lines that highlight the home’s outdoor space. A master bedroom addition makes the room feel “like a treehouse,” Stuver said. And the dark countertops and light cabinetry in the kitchen are offset by a bright, contrasting backsplash. The neighborhood’s midcentury homes aren’t the only throwback to another era, either.

“We all know each other’s pets’ names,” she said. “It’s just a wonderful community.”
