Open House: 1950 Expanded Goodman in Hammond Hill – $369K
This expanded Charles Goodman-designed ranch in Hammond Hill was just listed for $369K and open today from 2-4 pm. Hammond Hill is a small, 20-home mid-century modern community by Charles Goodman on the northeast side of Viers Mill Road in Wheaton. It sits just across the road from Hammond Wood, which is in the National Register of Historic Places and where Michael Cook and I are doing this project.
Clare Lise Kelly, in her new book Montgomery Modern: Modern Architecture in Montgomery County, Maryland, 1930–1979, writes that “Goodman launched into the arena of tract housing driven by a social conscience and a desire to provide modernist houses that were affordable to the middle class.”
