Serenely nestled in the heart of this close knit Bannockburn neighborhood of Bethesda lies a spacious, unique, and contemporary diamond in the rough. Perfect for those who understand art, design, space, light, and perhaps the supreme satisfaction of zigging while others zag. Designed and built by a prolific and accomplished artist this home beckons to the whimsy and wonder in all of us. Boasting soaring vaulted ceilings and sun-drenched spaces with oversized windows and skylights throughout on 4,400+/- square feet of living. Mature, tree-top views can be enjoyed from the private back deck, patio, and sunroom with a 10-foot glass ceiling. A wrap-around front patio leads to a covered entryway and beyond to the dramatic, bright foyer. The eat-in, table space kitchen is connected to the dining room, creating excellent flow for everyday living and entertaining. Stunning floor-to-ceiling windows and exterior access from multiple rooms bring nature into the spaces; from the sunken living room with deck access and the sizable family room opening onto a charming covered porch, to the recreation room with front patio access. Additional offerings include a handsome study, a first-floor powder room, and a first-floor laundry room. The upper level boasts a spacious and airy master retreat with soaring vaulted ceilings, a sun-drenched sitting room, and an en suite full bathroom.
