House of the Week: McLean mid-century home designed by Charles Goodman

View Photo Gallery: The Washington Post’s picks of local distinguished homes on the market.

This week’s featured home was designed by Charles Goodman, the mid-century architect behind Reagan National Airport.

The six-bedroom home sits on five acres of land and overlooks the Potomac River.

“The architecture really marries the house to the land,” said Mark McFadden of Washington Fine Properties. “The way it’s positioned, the house has views all the way up the river and all the way down the river.”

The house was built in 1959 and features built-in bookcases, four fireplaces and an intercom system. It is on the market for $6.9 million.

On a related note: Our ‘Mad Men’ Look Contest ends Monday. Submit photos of your mid-century-inspired home for a chance to win. We’ll announce finalists on Tuesday.
