1957 Rollingwood Mid-Century – $885K

Rollingwood - Pauline Drive
This mid-century listing in Rollingwood in Chevy Chase, Md., is right around the corner from the former Rollingwood Elementary school I highlighted in my last post. Rollingwood, which is located just east of Beach Drive and south of East West Highway, has more than 800 homes, including many mid-century moderns. “Rollingwood’s history is rooted in the 1930s and ’40s, as development in Chevy Chase moved eastward from Connecticut Avenue,” the Rollingwood Citizens Association web site says. “Many Rollingwood homes were built in the early years of the post-World War II housing boom as the quiet suburban lifestyle became an increasingly popular choice.”
