Open House Picks for Sunday

4007 Ingersol

I'm holding my Goodman listing in Rock Creek Woods open on Oct. 10 from 12-3 p.m.

The price on my Charles Goodman listing in Rock Creek Woods has dropped another $20,000 to $519K. I will be holding an open house this Sunday (Oct. 10) from 12 to 3 p.m. The 5 bedroom/3 bath home  is the only Goodman currently on the market in Montgomery County, so come on out and take a look. Read more here.

Here are some other interesting mid-century modern homes open on Sunday. Take a look at this 1964 modern on more than an acre in Mt. Washington in Baltimore listed for $565K. If you are searching in Virginia, take a look at this 1955 mid-century in Lake Barcroft that I wrote about here.  Looking in D.C., check out this new listing in the Palisades for a 1979 contemporary with an open, modern interior.

Located in a peaceful setting of mature trees in the National Register of Historic Places-designated neighborhood of Rock Creek Woods, this 1959 mid-century modern was designed by one of the 20th Century’s leading modern architects, Charles Goodman. The central focus of the two-level, 5 bedroom/3 bath home is the second-floor open living area. The expansive space features Goodman’s signature large brick fireplace, beautiful refinished hardwoods and wall of glass that allows for unfettered views of the trees, including the explosion of cherry blossoms in the spring. A large, wood deck allows you to enjoy the .2 acre lot and surrounding nature.

The home’s upper level features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, including master suite. The open, updated kitchen-dining area features Corian countertops and breakfast bar and wall of glass overlooking the deck. The lower-level features a large den with fireplace, two bedrooms, a full bathroom and large utility/laundry room with sink. The entranceway reflects the home’s mid-century pedigree with walls of glass, slate floor and dramatic open stairway. As part of a National Register of Historic Places-designated neighborhood, the home is eligible for tax credits for approved qualified interior and exterior rehabilitation work.

Located just outside the Beltway, the home is close to the shops, restaurants and MARC in Kensington, the Wheaton Metro and Beltway access off Connecticut Avenue. It is also located close to the popular cycling/running trail and playgrounds along Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park.
