    Thanks so much for this site, we just enjoyed the great slideshow and a few of the links. During our 5 years living in Alexandria we have driven through Hollin Hills several times just for pleasure and inspiration. It is such a beautiful place. When we came here we didn’t even know the area enough to know it was there, we just happened across it (we don’t live there.) We are currently “retiring” and moving to Charleston SC, to settle in one place for longer than we ever have, and would love to find or build a modern/contemporary house there, if anyone can give us any leads, ideas, or pointers on that area, thank you very much!– Ellen urthcreature@yahoo.com

    Hi Ellen,
    I chanced upon your comments/review while scheming through this website on Hollin Hills. Its unfortunate that developers these days don’t have much of a vision anymore. If you’re still searching or looking for someone to design your modernist dream hse, I might be able to help you on that. Just email me. Otherwise I hope you’ve found something rather similar in Charleston and living it out. All the best.

    Phil

    Thanks, Phil! We finally bought a pretty brick colonial house in Charleston, not modern. Modern is nearly impossible to find. We still dream of building a very modern house sometime, though probably not in the immediate future, thanks for your email 🙂
