13506 Reid Circle is a historic-designated mid-century modern home by Don Scholz & Associates set in Fort Washington Estates, a waterside community with access to a marina and multiple parks. This is a unique opportunity to be the next stewards of this home. The sellers are only the second family to own the home, having purchased it from the daughter of the original owners. This is the first time the house is being fully presented on the market since it was built. The home’s historic designation allows the owners to apply for grants and tax incentives to help preserve and maintain the house.
Known as the Scholz Mark ’64/Lang House, the rare version of this design is an excellent mix of well-preserved vintage details and new updates, including newer roof (2017), hot water heater and HVAC (2022) and the luxurious primary bathroom with radiant floor heat. The 3 bed/2.5 bath home has 2,114 square feet of living space on the main level, an unfinished 550-square foot (estimated) basement and one-car garage. The home’s front entrance is surrounded by a small entrance court of perforated masonry walls and decorative wrought-iron gates. The preserved slate entranceway separates the public spaces to the right and back of the home and the private bedroom wing on the left. The entrance is highlighted by an original nine-light, floor-to-ceiling translucent screen of polychrome leaded-glass diamond shaped panes and rustic stone planter. A separate dining area is created on the opposite side of the screen.
To the left of the entrance, a small step drops down to the cathedral beamed-ceiling living room with full stone wall with fireplace, wall of glass and period-appropriate cork flooring. The eat-in kitchen features a u-shaped work area with well-preserved wood cabinets and Formica countertops. While the lighting and appliances are updated (Samsung stainless steel), the kitchen still retains the vintage Caloric wall oven, Nutone exhaust hood and intercom/radio.
Just off the kitchen is the powder room, laundry area (2021 LG washer and dryer) and access to the garage and basement. The half bathroom has new terrazzo-style ceramic floor tile, high-end cement sink, vintage original mid-century wallpaper imported from Italy and new Kohler toilet and hardware.
Past the kitchen on the back of the house is a beamed cathedral ceiling family room with walls of glass and original wood paneling. While the family room shares the same roof line design as the living room, this area is a more casual counterpoint to the more formal living area on the front of the house. Sliding glass doors open to brick patio and backyard.
The bedroom wing includes three bedrooms with cork flooring and two full bathrooms, including the primary suite and renovated bathroom. The large hall bathroom retains the original tiles and cabinetry along with new modern faucets and lighting.
The primary bathroom, which underwent a major renovation in 2022, features a luxury walk-in rain shower with custom glass surround, separate soaking tub, heated floors with terrazzo-style ceramic floor tile, floor-to-ceiling subway wall tile, new Kohler toilet and hardware and mid-century style walnut vanity with white quartz countertop and double sinks. Exquisite mid-century modern inspired lighting and modern metal and glass wall storage units complete the transformation. Vintage Danish wardrobes in the primary bedroom will convey.
The house, set on a .23 acre flat, wedged-shaped lot with large front lawn, is located just 13 miles south of Old Town Alexandria and is less than 18 miles to Capitol Hill. The home is nestled at the tip of the Fort Washington area near Piscataway Park with its trails along Piscataway Creek, Fort Washington Marina and Fort Washington Park on the Potomac River, which you can see from the front lawn.View full listing details
