Edmund Bennett was one of the leading builders of  mid-century modern (or “contemporary” as they were called at the time) homes in the DC area.  In addition to Carderock Springs, New Mark Commons and Potomac Overlook, his team of architects–which included at various times Arthur Keyes, Chloethial Woodard Smith, David Condon, Nicholas Satterlee and Francis Donald Lethbridge–designed homes in Kenwood Park and Flint Hill in Bethesda.  The house pictured above is in Kenwood Park and listed at $885K. it is open on this coming Sunday. This 1961 mid century listed for $845K is in Flint Hill, a community of 40 homes designed by Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon.  The National Association of Home Builders gave Bennett a design merit award in 1959 for the community.
