Open House Picks: My Goodman, Carderock Springs and Custom Potomac MCM
I’ll be holding my listing in Rock Creek Woods in Silver Spring open from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday for those of you looking for a Charles Goodman in Montgomery County. Check out this copy from the original brochure: “The architect begins his concept with the beautiful, rolling, wooded terrain of Rock Creek Woods, and the homes have been designed to fit the rise and fall of the land, disturbing it as little as possible. All trees not actually in an excavation or street have been saved…the houses become part of the natural surroundings.” You can see more here about the house in my earlier post.
Here are a few others that caught my eye. This sprawling 1960 mid-century modern in Potomac was the personal residence of local mid-century architect Jerold Williamson. The price has dropped $85,ooo to $989K. Here are two open houses in Cardrock Springs in Bethesda: a 1962 5/3 Woodside model listed for $847K and an expanded 4/3 Hillcrest model listed for $825K down from $839K. Like Rock Creek Woods, Carderock Springs by Edmund Bennett and architects Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its mid-century modern architecture.
