Price Drop: Lyle Rowley-Designed MCM in Moyaone Reserve Reduced $100K

This 1957 MCM home attributed to a design by noted Dallas modern architect Lyle Rowley is now listed at $299K, dropping $100K since I posted it back in March. The house, which looks pretty much untouched, features a low-pitched roof, slate floor in the foyer and some nice wood walls. The 3/1.5 home sits on more than five acres in Moyaone Reserve in Accokeek, Md.

Rowley and his partner Jack White led Ju-Nel Homes Inc., which designed an built MCM homes in Dallas in the 1950s and ’60. “Inspired by Howard Meyer and Frank Lloyd Wright, Wilson and Rowley wanted to break the cookie-cutter mold of the traditional ranch homes being built during the mid-century period,” according a web site dedicated to the work of the duo. “Instead of the usual ranch house, they designed and built contemporary homes with open floor plans, using unusual ideas and innovative products.”
