Hollin Hills, the award-winning Fairfax County neighborhood has been long been recognized as one of the groundbreaking modernist suburban communities to be developed post-World War II. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the neighborhood is just south of Old Town Alexandria and includes nearly 450 mid-century modern homes designed by Goodman and developed by Robert Davenport. The neighborhood, with 30 acres of parkland, two pools and tennis club, is just 5 miles south of Old Town Alexandria, less than 10 to National Airport and 13 to Capitol Hill.
If you want to tour the neighborhood, the Civic Association of Hollin Hills is holding a House and Garden Tour on May 4, 20024, to celebrate the community’s 75th anniversary. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased here. Goodman and Davenport starting building in Hollin Hills in 1948. The last of the homes were constructed in the early 1970s.
Hollin Hills was born out of the post-World War II optimism and the desire for a new kind of American suburban living. Goodman, an architect with a vision, designed the community to break away from the cookie-cutter houses and urban congestion that defined the housing boom of the time. The focus was on simplicity, functionality, and harmony with the natural environment.
