One of our area’s largest mid-century modern neighborhoods was highlighted in a recent Washington Post ¬†“Where We Live” column. The article features Carderock Spring’s situated modernism. “Unlike a lot of suburban neighborhoods in Montgomery, Carderock Springs is marked by ‘situated modernism,’ a style dating to the 1960s,” writes Harriet Edelson. “Houses were designed to blend with the natural landscape.” The¬†National Register of Historic Places-designated¬†neighborhood was developed by Edmund Bennett and designed by architect Francis Donald Lethbridge of the modernist firm Keyes, Lethbridge and Condon.
