THE JACOBSEN HOUSE
We have a special edition of What Matters this month. This is a bit of an escapist issue where we are going to show you the inside of a spectacular modernist home in the DC-metro area that happens to be for sale. Designed by world renowned architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen in 1971, The Jacobsen House like many of Jacobsen’s architectural works is based on repeating triangular volumes. We have invited Ron and Steve Mangas, founders of listModern which lists and sells modernist homes in the greater DC area, to comment on The Jacobsen House.
Ron Mangas says, “McLean, Virginia is home to some of the finest residences in the Washington Metropolitan Area.
From the exquisite riverfront homes along McLean’s Gold Coast to the stately residences within the exclusive Langley Farms neighborhood, McLean, Virginia offers rare proximity to the world-class cultural amenities of Washington, D.C. as well as the natural beauty of nearby parks and recreation in Great Falls, Virginia.
Located along Georgetown Pike — adjacent to Langley Swim and Tennis Club and Scott’s Run Nature preserve — this extraordinary modern estate is sure to inspire.
Built in 1971 by renowned architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, this stunning residence is one of the crown jewels of modern architecture in the Washington Metropolitan Region.
Featuring over 4,300 interior square feet of interior living space, including 7 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms, this exquisite modern home — known as The Jacobsen House — is located on a stunning 10-acre parcel (with an additional 5-acre parcel available for development at the new owner’s discretion).
With nearby access to The Potomac River and Great Falls National Park, The Jacobsen House benefits from a stunning array of modern architectural details, including sleek hardwood finishes and bursts of natural sunlight achieved through Jacobsen’s visionary use of structural pavilions and floor to ceiling windows.”
