This Charles M. Goodman-designed 1955 house on an acre in Vienna, Va., is being marketed as a tear down. Goodman designed the house for prefab home manufacturer National Homes.
A 1954 Time article on National Homes mentions Goodman, who served as a consulting architect to National Homes for five years beginning in 1953. “In his mass operation, Price has not neglected style. The 31 models in his 1955 line, now starting in production, were designed by Architect Charles M. Goodman of Washington, D.C. Says Price: ‘We can fight it out on a mass or class basis. We can provide a home for somebody who hasn’t any kind of home, or give a rich man a home where he can entertain a Rockefeller.’” The price recently dropped from $799K to $759K.
