After 30 years of living and raising a family in the prior house on this lot, the homeowners decided to build new and continue enjoying the location they had grown to love. The new home design greatly expands their living space with highly desired room for entertaining and hosting their growing family and future grandchildren.
The traditional façade opens up to a modern living space inside. Beyond the elegant entry stair hall, a paneled archway leads through to the an open concept family room and kitchen, which continues onward to a combination of large sliding glass doors that reveal the rear yard gardens and patio, filling the home with plenty of outdoor light.
Designed to transition along with the owners, the home’s guest suite on the main level can adapt to become the master bedroom in the future. There are also no stepped level changes from the street to the main floor of the house. All the bedrooms in this house feature en-suite bathrooms with curbless showers, and the upstairs Master bathroom opens onto its own private balcony as well.
An additional, whimsical feature is found in this house’s attic level with built-in beds and reading nook. There is also a ships ladder that leads to a roof hatch and roof deck above – a great place to enjoy some sun, the cool breeze and the views over Bethesda.
