1961 Untouched MCM in Charred Oak Estates – $780K

Charred Oak Estates

For those searching for a mostly untouched mid-century modern home in Bethesda, look at this 1961 two-level home located in Charred Oak Estates off Seven Locks Road. Listed for $780K.

The cluster of mid-century modern homes was developed by builder Ernest Cook of Cook Enterprises, whose designs won the “contemporary” category in the first ever design contest of the Suburban Maryland Builders Association in 1963. The neighborhood backs up to Cabin John Regional Park.

This 5 bedroom/3 bath, 3,000+ square foot home on .46 acre is being sold as-is and could be endangered. While the mcm neighborhood is largely intact, a number have been torn down and replaced with McMansions. Looks like the listing agent is holding an open Sunday, March 8 from 1-4 pm.
