Rental: Goodman Hickory Cluster Townhouse – $2350/month

Hickory Cluster

My previous post featured a 1968 modernist townhouse in the city of Baltimore by living legend Hugh Newell Jacobsen. This post highlights a rental listing for a  townhouse in the suburbs of Reston that Charles Goodman designed just a few years before.  When Robert Simon, who just turned 99, started developing Reston as a modern planned community in the early 1960s, he asked Goodman to design the first set of homes:  Hickory Cluster –90 International-style townhomes nestled into the trees just across the street from Lake Anne.
