1951 Goodman in Silver Spring – 390K
Looks like another Charles Goodman is for sale in Wheatoncrest in Silver Spring. It’s a one level with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths over 1,248 square feet. The listing only has one interior image. Here’s how a 1951 Architectural Forum article described Goodman’s modern building techniques–such as no interior bearing walls and floor-to-gable glass walls–that were used in the Wheatoncrest homes: “Separately and in combination, they determine the highly contemporary appearance of the houses, but none of them was adopted merely for appearance sake. All of them were introduced for highly practical reasons.” The homes originally sold for $14,300. Woudn’t that be nice.
