Tucked away in this wooded sylvan setting off New Hampshire Avenue near White Oak is the Neighborhood of Quaint Acres in Silver Spring, Md.  A Washington Post Article describes the setting in this neighborhood 
to a tee. 

The setting is perfect for the Mid Century Modern houses that were built there in the early to late 1950's. There are 156 Homes, most were built between 1948 and 1974 and each lot is a little over an acre. These great examples of custom built Mid-Century Modern Homes are what makes Quaint Acres a "Mid Century Modern House Lover's Paradise".

The oldest home is the original farmhouse built in 1853 where Quaint Acres Drive and Applegrove Road meet inside the Entrance to the Subdivision. The old farmhouse was the home of Altus Lacy Quaintance, the namesake for the neighborhood. 

Contemporary Mid Century Modern architects and builders such as Charles Goodman and Frank Lloyd Wright  loved to make their homes seem as if they were one with nature.  Mid Century Modern Homes have simple, clean lines without a lot of embellishments. They use natural elements like stone, wood and glass, with a lot of floor to ceiling windows and vaulted ceilings. In a lot of the Modern homes, you get the feeling that you are outdoors when you are inside them. During this time period the homes in Quaint Acres were considered the epitomy of Luxury Living, much like the New Luxury Homes are thought of today.

This is a quiet, lovely neighborhood, where you can still find homes set back from the street on gorgeous, large, wooded lots, and NO McMansions what-so-ever.
