I just listed this mid-century modern by Charles Goodman in Silver Spring. Address is 3500 Woodridge Ave. See all the pictures by John Cole here.
Located in Hammond Wood, a National Register of Historic Places-designated neighborhood, this 1951 renovated mid-century modern home by award-winning architect Goodman features two additions, including a large master suite, and double-paned windows throughout the house.
The one-level, 4 bedroom/2 bathroom home is nearly 1,600 square feet and perched on a landscaped and fenced private corner .19 acre lot with two slate patios to enjoy the wooded setting. Hammond Wood was developed in 1949 to 1951, and consists of 58 mid-century modern single-family houses nestled in a tract of heavily wooded, rolling land.
The house’s entrance features a slate-floored foyer/mudroom with large storage closet. The open living-dining room has cathedral ceilings with exposed structural beam, tile flooring, large brick end-wall Heatform circulating fireplace and signature Goodman wall of glass. The open and updated kitchen with breakfast bar that can seat four has Silestone countertops, tile backsplash and stainless steel Bosch and Kitchen Aid appliances.
Just off the kitchen, an addition serves as a den, TV room or play area. The addition also includes a custom utility closet with Bosch washer and dryer, sink and mod IKEA storage. Sliding glass doors lead from the den to the side patio, a perfect spot for grilling.
The master suite addition features clerestory windows, a custom walnut bookshelves/desk unit and sliding glass doors that lead out to a newly installed, large slate patio with professionally designed landscaping.
The large master bathroom has Silestone countertops, double sinks and a shower/tub. The large walk-in closet is a rare find in a Goodman. The house has three additional bedrooms and one bathroom, which was recently updated. All bedrooms have newly installed laminate flooring. Custom Smith & Noble window treatments are installed in the master bathroom and two additional bedrooms.
The house has excellent interior and exterior storage space, including a large gardening/utility attached shed in the backyard. Closets in additional bedrooms and hallway have built-ins. The home is has a security system installed and is wired for FIOS.
Located just north of the Beltway, the home is close to the shops, restaurants and MARC in Kensington. The Wheaton Metro is just over a mile away and can be reached by RideOn bus or trail system. The house is also close to the popular trail and playgrounds along Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park.
