Neighborhood Spotlight: Mason Hill (And A Mid-Century Marvel Within It)

Phyllis Patterson

Nestled within the picturesque Mason Hill neighborhood of Alexandria, a mid-century modern home marries contemporary elegance and timeless charm. It blends harmoniously with the distinct character of this charming neighborhood. Join us as we explore not only the remarkable features of this exceptional residence but also the allure of the Mason Hill neighborhood that surrounds it.

The Mason Hill neighborhood is a testament to Alexandria's diverse architectural heritage and comprises an array of home styles. Exuding a tranquil suburban vibe while being moments away from the vibrant heart of Alexandria, Mason Hill offers the best of both worlds. Its tree-lined streets, well-manicured lawns, and strong sense of community create a warm and inviting atmosphere for residents and visitors alike. The neighborhood is also home to our newest listing, 1908 Windmill Lane.

In this gem, the elegance of mid-century architecture converges with modern-day comforts. As you step into this pristine residence, spanning over 4,000 square feet, the open floorplan and abundant natural light instantly capture your attention. Boasting five bedrooms (including a luxurious, main-level primary suite) and three and a half baths, the home offers the perfect combination of public and private spaces.

The heart of this home is undoubtedly the chef's kitchen, a culinary oasis that beckons both seasoned chefs and aspiring cooks alike. Outfitted with top-of-the-line Sub-Zero and Viking appliances, the kitchen encourages epicurean pursuits; dual sinks add a touch of practicality. The space’s seamless flow into the dining and family rooms fosters togetherness.

The ideally situated, main-level primary suite is a sanctuary within a sanctuary. With a sitting room and a private deck overlooking the treetops, it’s a personal haven where the owners can unwind and rejuvenate, while connecting with nature. The above-grade, walk-out lower level offers versatile functionality. A spacious rec room with a fireplace invites relaxation, while three additional bedrooms accommodate various needs, from guest quarters to office or hobby space. The professionally landscaped gardens create a visual tapestry that envelops the property, and the multi-level Trex decking facilitates outdoor enjoyment.

Mason Hill's commitment to providing a tranquil yet vibrant living experience finds a perfect complement in 1908 Windmill Lane. With its exquisite gardens, thoughtful upgrades, and timeless design, this home honors the past, while supporting a modern lifestyle. It’s a sophisticated gem, tucked within the alluring Mason Hill community of Alexandria!
