If you are looking for a modernist home in Bethesda, run to see this one in Bannockburn Co-op. Offers are due Tuesday at 3 pm. This 2008 custom, ground-up build by Division 1 Architects sits on Braeburn Place, the original street in the neighborhood.

Bannockburn Coop was founded in the mid-1940s by individuals who formed a housing cooperative to build homes and a community. The coop hired architects Burket, Neufeld and DeMars to further develop co-op member Mary Goldwater’s idea (She was an architect and planner.) The first two dozen homes were built on Braeburn Place. ┬áThe original land, 75 acres near the Potomac, cost $193,000, which the co-op paid off in three years, according to a history of the neighborhood by Mary and Jack Herling.
