Those who love anything and everything Modern are sure to love a brand new home tour on its way to Washington, D.C. On October 7, the Modern Architecture and Design Society and ContemporaryListings.com will organize the first D.C. Metro Area Modern Home Tour. The event will start at 11 a.m. and end at 5 p.m.
There are a total of five homes in this year’s tour. One notable inclusion is Travis Price’s floating home in Forest Hills. The single-family home has been on and off the market since November 2007, originally listed for $3.45 million. Some of the highlights of this listing include a glass bridge, "bird's nest" and terrace on the fourth floor, wood-burning stove, and spiral staircase.
Another stunner worth keeping an eye on is a glassy McLean, Virginia, home designed by local architect Mark McInturff. Currently on the market for $4,995,000, this home offers a saltwater pool, stone walls, and a wine cellar.
As part of the event, visitors will have the option to attend a VIP Architects Reception on October 5, which will allow ticket buyers to mix and mingle with architects, curators, and homeowners in this year’s tour.
Tickets for the event cost $40. Those who are under the age of 10 years old will attend for free.
