Waterfront MCM in Lake Barcroft – $1.4 million

Looking for a waterfront  mid-century modern on a half acre inside the Beltway? Take a peek at this 5 bedroom/3 bath home in Lake Barcroft just listed for $1.4 million. Love the living room with wall of glass looking out over the water.  Lake Barcroft in Falls Church has one of the areas largest concentration of mid-century and mid-century modern homes, including some designed by Charles Goodman and one by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius. The driving force behind the community was Barger, who bought the 135-acre lake and surrounding 566 aces for $1 million in 1950, according to an interesting 2001 history of the community written by longtime resident Anthony Bracken.
