MidCentury Modern Homes near Fairfax

One of the more interesting designs in Holmes Run Acres

Nice design with a huge deck as carport, amongst mature trees

With all the TV shows in reruns, I’ve been doing a lot of research lately and have run across a number of interesting communities in the area. First off is Holmes Run Acres, just inside the beltway and off Gallows Rd. It’s a community of 355 houses of modern design. The posted image is a neat home I saw there that overlooks the park. I’d love to tour it!

There is another area called Pine Spring, its a 121-home development just inside the beltway on Rt 50, near Loehman’s Plaza where SCAN used to be! (Kinda makes sense that a Scan was nearby!) I haven’t taken any pictures there yet.

Another area I drove into earlier this week is Mantua – its a large community just off 236 a bit below Pickett St – and its a mixed community of traditional and modern designs – I spotted a number of cool MCModern designs there – I’ll upload some pictures later.

Another community is Hollin Hills, a bit below Alexandria, which Emma and I still want to take a drive to and take some pictures. But its amazing the wealth of affordable Modern homes in this traditional area.
