Under Contract: Mid-Century Modern in Carderock Springs – $695,000

My new listing for this 1968 mid-century modern in Carderock Springs is an incredible opportunity to get into the modernist neighborhood in Bethesda. It is listed for $695,000. The house, located here, is on the market for the first time and is being sold by the original family.

Designed by local modernist architectural firm Keys, Lethbridge and Condon-designed , and developed by Edmund Bennett, the homes in Carderock Springs are sited seamlessly into the mid-century modern wooded community. This 4 bed/3 bath custom split-foyer Hillcrest model has custom carport with extensive storage and screened-in deck.

The main level features an open living-dining room with walls of glass and cathedral ceilings. In 1963, the Hillcrest model was certified by the “Congress on Better Living”  program sponsored by McCall’s. The Hillcrest also received a design award from Practical Builder.

The screened-in porch is accessed through the kitchen and dining room.

The kitchen and bathrooms are vintage mid-century, including the original kitchen cabinets.

The main floor has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the master suite.

Original hardwoods are newly refinished. Brand new luxury vinyl title has been installed in the lower level and the entire interior and exterior of the house has been painted.
