FEATURED HOME

This exquisite home has a very open feel to it, with spacious rooms and design elements that draw your eye towards the ceiling, such as the striking stairwell light fixture. Each room has its own unique color palette and design features, even the children’s rooms. Both of the owners have their own office retreat, with beautifully crafted built-ins. Functionality abounds, but the colors, fixtures, and décor also have a flavor of whimsy and fun. The home has that transitional quality of openness without being too contemporary. And many of the elements such as the stucco finish are more traditional. The lower level has colorful décor in the recreation area, and a partial glass wall hides the exercise studio. The backyard has a beautiful pool with swim-up bar, outdoor fireplace, and so much more that make it awesome outdoor entertaining space. Our clients worked with the team at SSB, the architect, and interior designer to create a fabulous new family home.

FEATURED NEIGHBORHOOD | EDGEMOOR

Our featured home is located in the Edgemoor neighborhood of Bethesda. Edgemoor’s exceptional reputation is only part of what residents say is special about the neighborhood, just west of downtown Bethesda. Edgemoor is within walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Bethesda Row and surrounds, and offers a short commute to downtown Washington and Northern Virginia. The Bethesda Metro station is also in walking distance, and a bustling social life is available through the Edgemoor Club, a private swim and tennis club, and the Edgemoor Citizens Association, which sponsors events throughout the year. Edgemoor was established in the early 1900s and has always drawn its identity from its proximity to downtown Bethesda, according to the Edgemoor Citizens Association. But residents say it wasn’t until the past decade or so, when downtown Bethesda grew into the bustling center of commerce and nightlife that it is today, that the neighborhood acquired its “panache”. Sandy Spring Builders has had the unique distinction of building more new homes and renovations than any other builder in the area. And we are proud sponsors of the Edgemoor 5K race.
