The Tager House as it looked when on the market in 2014.

Hugh Newell Jacobsen’s Tager House Saved

Too many times during the past 10 years I have posted about a mid-century modern home in need of serious repair meeting the wrecking ball and being replaced by a McMansion. Not this time. It is good to see that the 1960 Tager House by Hugh Newell Jacobsen was saved and renovated by the new owners. The house on 2.3 acres in Bethesda sold for $1.8 million in July 2014. In Sunday’s Washington Post magazine, Debra Bruno explores the complete renovation by owners Ted and Ruth Kassinger and architect Ben Van Dusen. Jacobsen himself approves.
