Project in Potomac – $750K

Cohen and Haft

Here is an opportunity for a modern renovation in Potomac. Listed for $750K, this 1970 three-level contemporary by Cohen, Haft & Associates needs a complete redo. Sited on a .3 acre wooded lot in the Red Coat Woods neighborhood in Potomac, the house has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. One of the key features of this model, which also can be found in the North Springbrook neighborhood in Silver Spring, is the open staircase with with wall of glass.

Clare Lise Kelly, in her book Montgomery Modern: Modern Architecture in Montgomery County, Maryland, 1930–1979, says Cohen, Haft and Associates, founded by Jack Cohen and Leonard Haft, designed roughly 200,000 residential units between the early 1950s and 1972.
