Sited quietly among the treetops, this chic Mid-Century Modern style home is one of Bannockburn’s hidden gems! Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, the house sits back from the street … very private! Designed by Ernest Cooke (a disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright), this home was thoughtfully designed to fit within the natural setting, allowing a connection with nature from every room in the house. Walls of glass, vaulted ceilings and large skylights bathe the interior spaces in natural light throughout the seasons.
This home design was conceived with entertaining in mind, but it has proven to be an efficient design for multiple family members living together and working from home (pandemic tested!). There are communal spaces to come together and relax, yet there are plenty of private areas which encourage focus and creativity during the work day.
The formal living and dining rooms feature wood floors, cathedral ceilings, large skylights and a wood burning fireplace. Roll out your yoga mat in the sunroom and take in the beautiful view as you set your daily intentions. The primary bedroom suite includes a large walk-in closet and en suite bath with separate tub and shower. A glass door to the deck allows access from the bedroom. Two additional bedrooms and a full hall bath with modern tile work are also found on the upper level.
When the current owner (an architect) purchased the home she set out to replace the 1970’s kitchen with a design more suited to the style of the home. The chic Boffi kitchen is truly a masterpiece, anchored by a large center peninsula with stainless steel countertop. A wall of shelves provides a place to display pottery. High-end appliances and storage are easily accessed behind large panels that can be closed when not in use, keeping the look sleek and clean. Form + Function!
The stair railing has been replaced with frameless glass, providing another modern touch to the entry foyer. Unique walls and ceilings and interlocking spaces crisply painted in white provide a stunning backdrop to showcase art. This home is a sanctuary, inspiring peace, calm and wellness.
The walk-out lower level also features large windows and welcoming and serene backyard. Find yourself inspired by the view from the tucked away, private home office with built-in cabinetry, desks and storage. A family room, fourth bedroom and additional full bath, and spacious laundry room are also found on the lower level.
The garage provides ample room for two cars plus storage. Outdoor spaces are perfect for entertaining, including a private patio accessible from the kitchen. Spend lazy summer days on the deck or plant your dream garden in the raised beds on the south side of the property. This home features a brand new architectural shingle roof.
This property is a peaceful oasis, quiet and serene, yet conveniently located close to shopping, major commuter routes, fine schools and everything Bethesda has to offer. Hike down to the C&O Canal and enjoy a beautiful nature walk, take a quick ride into DC for a fabulous dinner, or hop over the bridge for great shopping in Virginia. It’s true what they say: location is everything! The view from the rear of the house is community owned parkland with a stream that winds down to the river. The Bannockburn Community Pool is accessible from the trail behind the home (pool membership conveys to the new owner). The Bannockburn neighborhood has a rich history of inclusiveness and community, and is known for its friendly and welcoming spirit.
