Back in the early 1950s, a community of 125 contemporary-style houses in Falls Church built by Luria Brothers and designed by local modernist architects Arthur Keyes, Chloethiel Woodard Smith, Nicholas Satterlee and Donald Lethbridge received national recognition for its innovative design.

The houses in Pine Spring, inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, featured open floor plans with indoor-outdoor living areas, walls of windows, skylights and a post-and-beam style of architecture with pine-beamed ceilings. The community was also recognized for its street planning, which avoided a grid pattern and instead had curving roads that discouraged drive-through commuter traffic. There were five floor plans available with more than 20 optional variations.

Expansive homes in new development in Falls Church are quiet yet close to D.C.

One of those houses, at 2909 Pine Spring Rd., is listed for sale at $729,900. The house rests on nearly a half acre and has 2,095 square feet of living space with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The house has been updated since it was built in 1953 and includes triple-pane windows, exposed brick walls, two fireplaces, granite counters and stainless-steel appliances in the kitchen, built-in bookcases in many rooms, a whirlpool tub in the master bedroom, a sun room, a new driveway and a wraparound deck.
