I just reduced the price on my listing in Hollin Hills to $749,900. This 1958 custom mid-century modern home by architect Casper Neer provides a stunning one-level living modernist space perched in the trees high above Rebecca Drive, which features some of the most sought-after custom homes in the award-winning neighborhood. 7411 Rebecca Dr.’s modernist design evokes the designs of the Case Study homes in California. See all the images in this slideshow or here in this video slideshow.

Neer, who was a long time resident of Hollin Hills and did many of the additions to the homes in the community, graduated from Harvard’s School of Design during the time that Marcel Breuer and I.M. were professors.

The main living level of the flat-roof home has a private master suite with direct access to one of the backyard decks. The master suite side of the flat-roof, rectangular home also has its own living room with fireplace.

The kitchen addition has double skylights and looks out to the backyard.

The private outdoor spaces includes extensive decking off the back of the home and a front deck/balcony to take in the impressive .58 acre landscaped lot, which bursts in spring with azaleas and other plantings. Walls of sliding glass doors help blend inside and outside. A custom storage shed with privacy screen mirrors the modernist design of the main house.

Hollin Hills, comprised of 450 modernist homes with 30 acres of parkland and a pool and tennis club, is just 5 miles south of Old Town Alexandria, less than 10 to National Airport and 13 to Capitol Hill. The Fairfax County neighborhood has been recognized as one of the groundbreaking modernist suburban communities to be developed post-World War II.
