1956 Vintage Mid-Century Cottage on the Potomac – $400K

Penguin Place - front
If you are back at your desk after the holiday weekend, take a look at this vintage mid-century cottage on the Potomac as way to take you back to your leisurely time off by the water. This 2 bed/1 bath ranch in Charles County, Md., sits on almost a half acre on the shores of the Potomac. The untouched interior features knotty-pine walls, walls of glass and vintage kitchen, including the original oven and Formica boomerang countertops. If you don’t feel like using the vintage kitchen, the house has a private dock so you can boat to National Harbor or Old Town for dinner. You can see more images here.
