Situated within a cross-sloped clearing of an otherwise wooded lot in Bethesda, this one-of-a-kind custom home melds a single-story contemporary Ranch Style form with a two-story modern farmhouse, evident throughout both the interior and exterior of the 8,700 sf residence. Its appearance from the street is quite modern, with understated white façade, lap siding on the ranch portion and vertical board & batten siding on the two-story farmhouse portion. This exterior expression continues at the rear yard where another single-story wing extends deep into the yard, defining a private outdoor courtyard, pool and spa area.
Residing inside a building extension wing at the rear yard is a ground floor Master Suite, flooded with natural light and wooded views from an abundance of glass picture windows. Far from this tranquil Master Suite, at the opposite “Farmhouse” side of the home, a partial second story houses three additional bedroom ensuites and a casual loft area.
Perhaps the most defining architectural expression of this contemporary Ranch Style home is a remarkably grand, shiplap-clad vaulted ceiling that spans the length of the open concept Kitchen, Breakfast and Family Room area. This dramatic feature takes full advantage of the single-story style.
