Rent a One-of-a-Kind Goodman Retreat
If you have always wanted to see what it is like to live in a Charles M. Goodman-designed home or you have relatives or friends looking for a stunning modern space to stay while here in DC, take a look at this Goodman transformed by architect Michael Cook and developer Steven Wheeler. The property is for rent via airbnb. (All photos by Ulf Wallin.)
The restored and expanded two bedroom/two bathroom mid-century modern home in Hammond Hill with ultra-gourmet kitchen and master bathroom spa suite is located in a quiet park-like setting just 6 miles to the Washington, D.C., border and 4.5 miles to the restaurants and shops of downtown Bethesda. The Wheaton Metro is just 1.5 miles away.
The house comfortably accommodates 4 adults. The office space can be arranged to accommodate 2 children or a 5th adult. The house, designed by Goodman, Washington’s foremost residential modernist architect in the 1950s through early 1970s, features recycled brick from Baltimore and Brazilian cherry wood flooring and is furnished with a beautiful collection of mid-century modern designs.
The state-of-the-art open modern kitchen with soaring ceilings features a center cooking island with seating for 8 with views of the gardens, Viking professional 6-burner range and convection oven, high-end Poggenpohl cabinets, Silestone countertops and Bosch dishwasher.
The master bedroom suite features a Queen bed, cable TV and contiguous connection with an opulent spa-like master bathroom including glass enclosed steam-spa bath with a 6 foot bench, a 6′-3″ sunken soaker tub, and regular as well as handheld shower.
The second bedroom also has a Queen bed. There is also a large space connected to the kitchen that can be used for additional guest quarters (air mattress and pump provided). Views throughout the residence look on to gardens complete with a pond and waterfall. Reinforcing this natural connection already experienced inside using free, open, outward-looking spaces with high ceilings and window walls allowing for plenty of natural light, the house is sited toward the end of a quiet cul-de-sac bounded by church campuses on both sides and the 21.1-acre Wheaton Claridge Park.

If you see what you like, Michael Cook and I are currently renovating a two-level Goodman just down the street in Hammond Wood. More updates coming soon on that project, which we plan to sell this fall.
