Mid-Century Moderns Moving Fast

Mid-century modern homes in the DC area are flying off the market. My two new listings went under contract in a matter of days, not lasting for the planned open houses this weekend. Properties are intense seeing bidding wars, even properties being marketed off the multiple listing service. You have to move quick if you want snag one. Call or email me if you are looking.

My listing in Wheaton, a custom, vintage mid-century modern being sold by the original family went under contract in an intense bidding war. (All photos by John Cole.) The house was designed by Frank A. Dean, an engineer, for his family. The full wall of glass in the living room looks out over the backyard and park.

My listing in Annandale with its unique, two story atrium was snapped up immediately. Talk about a party space or place to display modern art.

Here are few new interesting listings new to the market:

  1. A 1975 Deck House in Fulton, MD for $589,900
  2. A 1970 Deigert & Yerkes-designed house in Truro in Ananndale, VA for $690K
  3. A 1961 Cross & Adreon-design home in Woodside Park in Silver Spring for $975K

    Mike, these are both great houses. I wanted to point out for the benefit of those interested in the work of Don Scholz that the Frank A. Dean House is almost certainly based on, or borrows heavily from, Scholz’s Mark ’58 “House of the Year” model. Of course, the Mark ’58 continued to be offered into the early 1970s. There are two identified Mark ’58s in Prince George’s County; I don’t know of any others in Montgomery County.
