Description

Welcome to 1605 Hollindale Drive, an extraordinary retreat in a serene and private setting. This home, originally built in 1959, was reimagined and renovated by its current owner with the assistance of renowned architect Benjamin Ames. The extensive renovation was featured in the Washington D.C. Home & Design Magazine and celebrated for its smart design, distinct interior details, the extensive use of glass and natural materials including solid Douglas fir windows and custom maple and beech veneered built-ins.  It also received the Merit Award for Exceptional Design from the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

The main level offers a spacious, open floor plan with a light-filled living room, an entertainment center including surround sound, adjoining breakfast lounge with access to the rear flagstone patio and an updated kitchen with cork flooring and floor to ceiling frosted glass panels. The dining room addition is a delight with walls of glass, a convex ceiling and radiantly heated graphite slate floors. The built- in buffet and console offer maximum utility and storage.  A floating wood burning fireplace, wrapped in Corten Steel, provides a stunning focal point in the living and dining areas.  This dramatic feature is mirrored on the exterior wall of the dining room with a statuesque steel column that bisects the exterior wall.

The upper floor offers an en-suite master bedroom, also with custom built-ins including a charming window seat.  The master bath has a twist of its own with a dramatic light well in the shower.  A feature you have to see for yourself to appreciate.  There are two additional bedrooms on this level and another full bath. 

The lower level is above grade providing fabulous natural light to the space. The family room has more fabulous custom millwork and plentiful storage cabinets with frosted glass fronts. The second fireplace, which is gas fired, is also wrapped in steel and a combination of graphite slate flooring and tasteful carpet tie the living areas together beautifully.  There is a fourth bedroom on this level, the third full bathroom and access to one of two large flagstone patios creating the perfect flow for entertaining.

The lot is close to an acre in size, has landscaped gardens with mature plantings, perennials and terraces that lend seasonal interest and plenty of opportunities for gardening. Thoughtful landscape lighting,  stone retaining walls, iron railings and a wisteria covered pergola provide accent and interest to the beautiful setting.

This home's contemporary design is timeless and elegant. The custom details, natural finishes in oak, maple, beech and Douglas fir create a sense of warmth, freshness and vitality. The expansive windows, framing the beautiful outdoor views, make this an extremely special and inviting place to call home.

Alexandria - Parkway/Ft. Hunt

The area takes its name from a post-Civil War era fort constructed near the banks of the Potomac River that was intended to compliment the defenses of Washington, DC with Ft. Washington on the opposite side of the river.  Ft. Hunt was even home to a top secret military intelligence operation during World War II.  While no shots were ever fired in anger, the remains of the facility are the centerpiece of the sprawling Ft. Hunt Park.  The George Washington Parkway is a beautiful ribbon of road that runs through the community towards George Washington’s Mt. Vernon to the south, offering incredible vistas of the Potomac River.  There are beautiful communities of primarily single family detached homes to the west of the Parkway, including Hollin Hills, a neighborhood of roughly 450 homes designed by Charles Goodman immediately after World War II.  It is considered a landmark of contemporary design.

Quality of Life:

Parks, scenic vistas of the Potomac River and the walking and biking trail that runs from Mt. Vernon to Rosslyn right through Ft. Hunt are the anchors for this beautiful community. While there a handful of townhomes, almost every dwelling is a detached home, ranging from 1950's construction to magnificent new homes overlooking the river. And the incredible variety of shops and restaurants of Old Town are just minutes away up the Parkway.

Getting Around:

There’s no better drive in the metropolitan area than the beautiful George Washington Parkway.  By design, there are no traffic lights, no billboards and no trucks or commercial traffic allowed. Any drive to or from work that includes a stretch on the Parkway makes the rest of the trip more bearable.  The area is well-served by bus routes as well, filtering to the Huntington Metro stop, as well as direct routes to the Pentagon.
