Deigert & Yerkes MCM in Wessynton
Renovated mid-century modern designed by Deigert & Yerkes in Wessynton. 5 bedroom/3 full bathroom home with two-car garage on beautiful corner lot. Robert Deigert and David Yerkes, leading modernist architects well known for the National Arboretum Administration Building, designed a number of “contemporary” communities developed by Miller & Smith in the 1960s and early ’70s, including Manor Woods in Rockville and Truro in Annandale.
The model is known as The Meadow Home and is nearly 70-feet long. The Deigert & Yerkes signature design is the architectural fireplace in the open living-dining room with a full wall of glass overlooking the slate patio and backyard. The floating fireplace helps define the dining and living areas while still keeping an open and modern feel.
The entrance of the home, which has a total square footage of nearly 3,400 (estimated), is marked by original textured glass sidelight and modernist railings on the stairs that lead up to the bedroom wing and to the lower level.
In addition to the living-dining area, the home’s main level features a large eat-in modernist kitchen and access to the large two-car garage. The top-level includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, including private primary suite with an updated bathroom and multiple closets.
The lower-level features two additional bedrooms, third full bathroom and large den/family room with wood ceilings. The lower level is a large and utility/laundry/storage area.
