Moyaone Reserve Homes Tour – April 30

Moyaone House

Moyaone Reserve is a special neighborhood in Accokeek, Md., just 20 miles south of Capitol Hill. The heavily wooded community of 180 home is situated along the Potomac River contiguous to Piscataway National Park, home of the National Colonial Farm, and to The Hard Bargain Farm, an environmental education center. The homes in the community–many are mid-century modern and contemporary styles–were first built after World War II by the likes of architects Charles Wagner and Charles Goodman. All the lots in the community are five acres or more  and are protected by federal scenic easements to protect the viewshed from Mt. Vernon, just across the Potomac River.
