Bannockburn Highlighted by WashPost

Stokes House

In its latest neighborhood profile, the Washington Post highlights Bannockburn in Bethesda. Started as a co-op in 1946, the neighborhood in the woods off MacArthur Boulevard was packed with mid-century modern houses. While the community still has many mid-century modern homes, as each year passes more are being lost.  “Like many other suburban neighborhoods, Bannockburn is experiencing growing pains as some of those older homes are demolished to make way for vastly larger ones,” the story says. I posted here about the trend last year, including the eventual loss of the Stokes House (above) designed by by Hal Esten.
