Post Highlights MCM Hoods; Cool Listing Near Baltimore

Rock Creek Woods Sign

The Washington Post‘s new real estate blog did a nice post on some of the mid-century modern neighborhoods in the DC area. I love all the comments from people mentioning the many other neighborhoods that I try to regularly highlight that were not mentioned in the brief piece. While it is nice to see our local mcm hoods getting recognition, check out this listing a bit farther north near Baltimore. This flat-roof mid-century modern with a pool is on almost four acres in Owings Mills. The 5 bed/4.5 bath 4,100 square foot home is priced at $599K.  The listing says it is a “Classic Menefee-designed mid-century modern.” I found this obituary for Lawrence Ashton Menefee Jr., who died in 2005. He joined his father’s firm Menefee & Associates in 1964, 10 years after this houes was built so it looks like this home was designed by the senior Lawrence Ashton Menefee.
