The Houses of South Four Corners

Developed Around the Original Argyle Country Club (Now Sligo Public Golf Course) before the Beltway bisected the country club grounds. Thus the Sudivision names such as, "Country Club View", "Fairway" and "Argyle Forest" The Oldest Houses in South Four Corners date back to the late 1920's and early 1930's. 

There are 5 houses in South Four Corners that make up a Montgomery County "Historic District".  They are the "Polychrome Houses" built by John Joseph Early in 1934 and 1935. The houses are outstanding examples of the Art Deco Style with richly ornamented appearance and relatively rare examples of pre-cast concrete panel 
constuction in single family homes for the time period. 3 polychrome houses are on Sutherland Road and 2 of the polychrome houses face Colesville Road near the exit ramp to the Beltway. A Silver Spring Blogger recently wrote this article about the Polychrome Houses.  A Recent Article in the Washington Post  is about these houses - from Montgomery County The Historic Polychrome House District Article and from 2005 another Washington Post article .  Many people seem to be fascinated with these houses.

Popular House Styles are the Cozy Cape Cods, Storybook Tudors and Traditional Colonials built  before, during and just after WWII.  During the post war building boom years -  the 1950's and 60's brought newer mid century modern ramblers and split levels to complete the neighborhood.  There are approximately 1,100 Single Family Homes within the Neighborhood boundaries of South Four Corners.
