Goodman Rental in Rock Creek Woods – $2,200/month

Rock Creek Woods Rental

I was in Charles Goodman’s Rock Creek Woods today and spotted this mid-century modern rental. The house is the 4 bedroom/3 bathroom split-foyer “Woodview” model, one of the three models Goodman designed for the neighborhood located just north of Kensington. Asking rent is $2,200 per month. The 76-home community is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Here’s a taste from the original 1959 brochure: “The architect begins his concept with the beautiful, rolling, wooded terrain of Rock Creek Woods, and the homes have been designed to fit the rise and fall of the land, disturbing it as little as possible. All trees not actually in an excavation or street have been saved . . . the houses become part of the natural surroundings.”
