Needs Love: 1960 Cohen & Haft MCM in Bethesda – $695K
Noted Washington architects Cohen & Haft designed a cluster of nearly two dozen mid-century modern homes in Bethesda off Fernwood Road and Michaels Drive just inside the Beltway. This one was built in 1960 and is listed for $695K. As you can see from the listing’s pictures, it is mostly being marketed for the half acre lot on a cul-de-sac. I recently toured the 4 bed/3.5 bath house and the entire house is in disrepair and needs work. It is a large mid-century home with four levels, more than 3,000 square feet and plenty of storage space. The entrance and open living room form the center of the house and both have walls of glass. Could be a great restored mid-century space or complete modern interior renovation while keeping the mid-century floor plan.
