April 10, 2010 Mid-Century Modern

Nationwide Open House Weekend

Hugh Newell Jacobsen's 1976 'Three Linked Pavilions'

With the National Association of Realtors (I am a member) promoting Nationwide Open House weekend, I did a MRIS search and found 90 open houses for Sunday (April 11)  in D.C. and the immediate surrounding suburbs listed under the “contemporary” category. From these 90, I picked six houses that I thought mid-century modern and modern fans would especially enjoy.  Make sure to check the individual listings for the exact open times. Have fun if you go see any of these or any other modern opens that you may find.
