Just Listed: 1952 Pine Spring Mid-Century – $489K

The description for this just listed mid-century in Pine Spring with two brick wall fireplaces, wood ceilings and walls of glass says it is a fixer upper and needs updating. Hard to tell exactly what needs to be done from the limited pictures, but it could mean there are vintage touches if that’s what you are looking for. The 3/2 house is located here in Falls Church.

The 121-home community was built by the Luria brothers, who also developed most of nearby Holmes Run Acres. The homes in Pine Spring were designed by Arthur Keyes, Francis Donald Lethbridge, Chloethiel Woodard Smith and Nicholas Satterlee. See vintage images of the community from 1950s and ’60s here.

    I've seen this house from the road a few times while driving through the neighborhood. I am worried that it will be purchased only to be torn down and replaced by something ugly, like some of the others in the area.

    My husband and I went to see this house. To be honest, it seemed waaaaaay over priced to us. You can buy better homes in Holmes Run Acres (when they come on the market, of course). for less or the same amount of money.

    It's completely run down, and any new construction/updates are a hodge-podge mess. They really need to bring the asking price down closer to 400k. I'm a huge fan of the style, but you'd need to sink a huge amount of money into it to make it lovingly livable.

    Of course, my hope is that someone with a great sense of modern style and an extra chunk of change will scoop it up and make it the pride of the neighborhood!
