Located between Fort Hunt and Belle Haven in Alexandria, VA, Hollin Hills is a wooded neighborhood of more than 400 homes known for its distinctive contemporary architecture. Designed by architect Charles M.

Many of the homes have been maintained and renovated over time to meet the needs of modern living but continue to maximize space and lot size in contrast to the more traditional center-hall colonials in the area.
The community is approximately ten miles from the District and within biking distance of Mount Vernon, bounded on the west by Route 1 and to the east by Fort Hunt Road. Hollin Hills is served by the Hollin Meadows Elementary School, Carl Sandburg Middle School and West Potomac High School.
