McLean, VA - 1958 Eames-like MCM

Postby Mid-CenturyMike » Tue Jul 03, 2007 11:34 am

When I first saw this home located in Braewood in McLean, I thought of the Eames' Case Study House #8 with the horizontal colored panels, and of course, all those windows. This 4/2.5 home sits on more than half an acre and backs up to Dead Run Park. As you can see from the bottom picture, the back is almost all windows, bringing the backyard nature into the house. There are definitely things needed to be done inside, but this looks like a good outer shell to begin with.
