Modern House Real Estate – Hollin Hills Gem

Another dream home on the market. Lately I’ve been using up a lot of my time perusing modern houses on the internet. This one is incredible. It belongs to Erik Johnson, one of my favorite photographers (I’ve swiped his work from magazines for posts in this blog quite a few times). I love that this home is clean and uncluttered, but not sparse. It reminds me a bit of the modern house with a soul I featured a month or so ago.

Back in the ’40′s, architect Charles Goodman and developer Robert Davenport came together to design and build the Hollin Hills neighborhood in Alexandria Virginia.  I thought I’d share some of Erik’s photos of his home with you.  For more information and more photos, please click here.

    What a beautiful house. Any idea whose paintings those are above the staircase in the living room?

    Michael, Erik got right back to me:


    Funny, she is actually a good friend of mine, Julie Wolfe Here is her website.

    She is actually an amazing jewelry designer who has been selling through the Barney’s stores for the past 10 years.

    That’s funny — I have that same couch with that same console table behind it.

    Can you tell me where you found that mid-century modern sofa (w/ the tapered wood legs)?

    If you are talking about the sofa in the living room, I am glad you think it looks MCM. It is actually a Crate and Barrel sofa… I think it is discontinued. (craigslist) If you are referring to the low sectional with the very short tapered legs, that one came from the Salvation Army in Seattle about 15 years ago.
