1968 Bannockburn Estates Contemporary – $1.295 Million; Open 6/1

I love the whole area where this late ’60s contemporary is located. Just drive around (or bike as I did) Nevis Road and the surrounding streets to see a wide variety of mid-century modern and contemporary homes. The area comprises Bannockburn Estates, Bannockburn Heights and Flint Hill. If you take Nevis north across River Road onto Beech Tree and Burning Tree, there are additional modern homes as well. The 3/3.5 contemporary pictured above is open on Sunday, June 1. A perfect opportunity to check out the area.

If you go, swing by this 1959 contemporary at 7200 Broxburn Dr. This looks like it could be a Flint Hill home by Edmund Bennett and Keyes, Lethbridge & Condon. Bennett won an award from the National Association of Home Builders for the neighborhood. The home is being marketed as: “Renovate or build new.” The listing has no interior images.
