Mid-Century Contemporaries in Rock Creek Palisades; Open House Today

Here are listings for two mid-century contemporaries in Rock Creek Palisades in Kennsington, Md.

The neighborhood has many small two-level contemporary-style homes from the mid-1950s that feature a lot of windows and cathedral ceilings.

1955 3/2 – 479K – This house also has a backyard with a California feel: deck with hot tub surrounded by bamboo. It’s located here.
