This unique house is located walking distance to everything in downtown Bethesda. Our clients wanted a traditional shape that had contemporary and transitional elements to assure that it would be different from neighboring homes but still fit in the neighborhood. With the architectural expertise of Studio Z Design Concepts and a great deal of involvement every step of the way from the owners, this amazing house is both crisp and elegant, with beauty and charm.

Inside, the first thing you notice is the custom stairs and stair rails which are unique to this house and not only provide functionality but are also a major design element. It is an elegant foyer with interesting and exciting site lines and niches for art and furniture. The beautifully mixed contemporary kitchen cabinets and counter tops accent the wide open kitchen, dining and family room space which is comfortable for empty nesters, but also ideal for their entertaining needs. Off the back is a beautiful porch perfect for entertaining and observing the backyard water features, and there is also an observation porch from the owner’s suite above.

As you go upstairs, there is a private reading area tucked away for a cozy afternoon read with plenty of light coming inside. The master bedroom is warm and inviting, with oversized 12 foot sliding glass doors onto the rear deck. Their bathroom has unique tile finishes and a fantastic shower area. An elevator services all three floors. In the lower level, there is large open space for entertaining or grandkids to play in when they visit. The recreation area opens up to a finished garage with tiled floors that can store cars and also serves to double the entertaining area.  After living in their home for a year now, our clients said,

“We loved the designing and building stages as much as we love living in our home.”
