$1,550,000 6705 Buttermere Ln, Bethesda, MD 20817
PRICE REDUCED! Take another look at this stunning property that's been thoughtfully redeveloped from the foundation up. This is an exceptional price for an almost-new home with private swimming pool in the fenced backyard. Designed by Chris Lapp, AIA, this home was conceived with modern living in mind. Step up to the charming flagstone front porch and make yourself at home!

Entertaining is a breeze on the main level of this home, featuring a sun-soaked living room, dining room, and kitchen with bay windows, sliding glass doors, and serene views of the resort-like backyard. The kitchen has been outfitted with custom wood cabinetry by Forevermark, white quartz countertops and stainless Bosch appliances. Custom tile work above the 36" Bosch gas range adds to the sleek look of the gourmet kitchen. A large kitchen island allows multiple seating options, in addition to the large dining room.

The second level provides three bedrooms with ample closets and a full bathroom with a tub and shower combo finished with custom tile work. The third level provides the homeowner with a welcome and private respite from a busy day. Large glass doors lead to a Juliette balcony overlooking the backyard. The primary suite features a lovely primary bathroom, and a custom walk-in closet; you may never want to leave! One of two laundry rooms is also found on this level (never again mix your lovely things with dog towels and hockey gear!).

A spacious family room with wood burning fireplace walks out to the backyard. Go ahead and buy that big, comfy sectional for movie nights ... it will fit perfectly in this room! There's a full bathroom and a custom mud room with washer and dryer, built-ins for storage and a tile floor. This room provides another point of access to the backyard, and it's the perfect place to access the house after a refreshing dip in the pool!

Finally, the lower level has flex space, perfect for a home office, playroom, or exercise room. There's a fifth bedroom on this level with a large window.

Note the quality of work at this property. The home was built by professional craftsmen, using fine products and finishes. The heated pool has been completely rebuilt, including brand new pool equipment. Zoned, high-efficiency HVAC keeps the home comfortable throughout the seasons. Pella doors and windows provide additional energy efficiency.

Sited on a quiet, tree-lined street in the desirable Stratton Woods neighborhood of Bethesda, this home provides easy access to all major DMV commuter routes. Stroll down the block to Stratton Park or check out one of the local restaurants or shopping venues. This is truly one of Bethesda's most convenient neighborhoods!
