1968 Deigert & Yerkes in Manor Woods
On the market for the first time since being built, this 1967 mid-century modern designed by Deigert & Yerkes is located in Manor Woods in Rockville. The 5 bedroom/2 full bath side-split home features three levels and has a brand new roof, newly refinished hardwood floors, and has been freshly painted.
Robert Deigert and David Yerkes, leading area modernist architects well known for the National Arboretum Administration Building, designed a number of “contemporary” communities developed by Miller & Smith in the 1960s and early ’70s, including Manor Woods and Wessynton and Truro in Virginia.
The Deigert & Yerkes signature design in Manor Woods is the architectural fireplace in the open living-dining room with a wall of glass. The floating fireplace helps define the dining and living areas while still keeping an open and modern feel. The living room, which has built-in bookshelves, opens to extensive outdoor space including screened-in porch with skylights, a patio and open deck to enjoy the .22 acre private yard with mature trees.
The entrance of the home, which has a total square footage of 2,545, is marked by original textured glass sidelight, slate floor and modernist railings on the stairs that lead up to the bedroom wing and to the lower level.
In addition to the living-dining area, the home’s main level features a large eat-in kitchen with dual pantry closets, and adjacent family room opening up to the deck. The top-level includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, including private master suite with an updated bathroom and multiple closets.
The second bathroom is in well-preserved, vintage condition.
The lower-level features two more good-sized rooms (the larger of which has a wall of windows and direct outside access), cedar closet, rough-in for third bathroom and utility/laundry/storage area. The paved driveway can accommodate at least three cars.
Located conveniently to Georgia Avenue and the ICC, the house is just 3 miles from the Rockville Metro Station. The Manor Woods Swim Club is just 1/2 mile away. The home is just around the corner from Lucy V. Barnsley Elementary School and just over a half mile on foot to Earle B. Wood Middle School. The house is also close to shopping, the Bauer Drive Community Recreation Center and Earle B. Wood Park.
