From 16th Century Jerusalem to Mid-Centuries in Bethesda

As I write this I am looking at the wall surrounding the old city of Jerusalem, which was built in the first half of the 16th century by the Ottoman Turk, Suleyman the Magnificent. Here are two structures built some 400 years later in the mid-20th Century:

1964 5/3 in Bethesda’s Charred Oak Estates – $815K – A nice mid-century with a wall of windows overlooking the backyard of a half acre lot. The kitchens and baths have been updated. This is open Sunday, May 27 from 1 to 4 p.m.

1964 4/3 in Bethesda’s Carderock Springs – $849K – Here’s another Carderock contemporary on more than half an acre. The listing highlights the “open floorplan; Cathedral Ceilings, Skylight, Glassed Walls creating a ‘tree house’ effect. Hardwood floors. Remodeled Eat-In Kitchen with Granite tops.”
