Welcome to Carderock Springs

Carderock Springs is a vibrant community located in Bethesda, Maryland, featuring distinctive modern architecture, a mature green landscape, and a community spirit where residents know each other, support our top-performing local schools, and connect with a variety of social activities. Summers are always active at our Clubhouse and Swim & Tennis Club.

Carderock Springs appears on the National Register of Historic Places as a prime example of Mid-Century Modern/Situated Modernism Architecture — a style where modern houses complement and blend in with the natural landscape. Opened in 1962, it's long been featured in consumer and professional publications as an excellent example of both modern design and environmental stewardship. 

If you're modifying the exterior of your home, you'll need approval from the Architectural Review Committee, which has ARC Design GuidelinesCovenants govern all properties. Because the natural environment is so integral to the neighborhood's appeal, we also have Tree Removal Guidelines.
