For Sale: Mid-Century Moderns in Maryland

For those looking in Maryland, here’s a roundup of some mid-century modern listings from Rockville to Baltimore.

The modernist  totem pole above marks the entrance to New Mark Commons, a mid-century modern oasis not far from the hustle and bustle of Rockville Pike. The wooded community, a Planned Urban Development of single-family homes and townhouses, was developed by Edmund J. Bennett and designed by the  modern architectural firm of Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon. This house from 1968 listed for $659K looks nice and is largely untouched.

Want to be near the water? How about this 1974 Deck House on more than one acre in Annapolis? Listed for $749,900. Or this project on three acres in Edgewater? Listed for $470K.

Or maybe you want to live in a park in Baltimore. This custom flat-roof mid-century  pavilion home by architect John Black Lee, known for his work in New Canaan, Connecticut, is being listed for the first time since it was built in 1959. It is listed for $695K, and looks similar to the System House designed by Lee and Harrison DeSilver in New Canaan. More than 1,000 sets of the plans were sold after appearing in Better Homes and Gardens.
