A home designed by an architect for his own family with Mid-Century Modern accents in an easy living floor plan. Entry is gained through double doors into a large foyer with 10-foot ceiling and a random colored slate floor. Through a wide archway to the right is the living room, also with a 10-foot ceiling, beautiful oak hardwoods, windows in a floor-to-ceiling bow, indirect and accent lighting, and a fireplace set in a brick accent wall above a raised hearth. Then, through another wide archway you enter the dining room, again the 10-foot ceiling, oak floors, and a marbled glass window for light and interest. From the dining room one can enter the kitchen, which has oak cabinets and designer Corian countertops, with a center island on wheels, and a large skylight. The dining room and the kitchen both have wide archways that communicate with the family room/sun room in the back, which has lots of picture windows showing the beautifully landscaped backyard, and which repeats the colored slate floor seen in the foyer. The kitchen also has a door back to the foyer which is convenient for parties. Up a half flight of stairs from the foyer are three bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom looks out on the landscaped backyard through large windows which let in lots of natural light. There are three closets, and a master bath, of course. The other two bedrooms each have vaulted ceilings and share the hall bath. The bedrooms also have the oak floors. Down a half flight from the foyer is the spacious rec room, again with lots of natural light, and which has a second fireplace in a brick accent wall and the raised hearth complementing the fireplace in the living room. Here there is new carpet and fresh paint as well. Completing this level is another bedroom/den, a full bath, and a laundry room. From here, there is another half flight down, to access a large pantry/storage room, a large utility room/storage room, a separate workroom originally designed as a photographer's darkroom, but used as a wine making room by the current owner (future wine cellar?), and the garage. All of this on a quarter-acre lot, in a great neighborhood less than 15 minutes from the White House, and within a short walk of several County and Regional Parks encompassing close to 100 acres.
