1968 Charles Moore Modern in Bannockburn – $2.95 Million

Located on Crail Road in Bethesda along side a number of mid-century modern properties, this late 1960s modern is by Charles Moore, who studied with Louis Kahn and followed Paul Rudolph as the dean of the Yale School of Architecture. The soaring lines on the house evoke one of Moore’s most famous projects, the 1965 Sea Ranch Condominium in California, built just a few years before this house in Bannockburn.

Architecture critic Paul Goldberger described Moore as the “Pied Piper of post-modernism” in this New York Times piece just after his death in 1994.
