Gold Award |Best Custom Home 5,000-7,500 Sq. Ft

We are proud to feature one of our Gold Award Custom Home winners in the Maryland Building Industry Association 2019 awards program. One of our client’s major requirements was that the house be a classic front exterior, something that was very unassuming, yet elegant and proportional …  but once you go in the front door, the home opens up with glass and many contemporary features. What a stunning surprise you have once you come through the entrance as you are immediately looking centerline right through to the 9′ tall folding glass doors. This absolutely brings the rear property in to the fabulous interior space when the doors are open. The first floor master bedroom, master bathroom, and office all look out onto the backyard through the expansive glass. It allows the owners to enjoy the view, but they can always bring down the blinds for privacy. The owners love to entertain and host fundraisers, and guests marvel at the wonderful flow from the kitchen and family room to the outdoors. In addition to the pool, there is a wonderful covered porch with an outdoor fireplace, and an open fire pit and sitting area on the other side. The entire yard is exquisitely landscaped, and is stunning in the daytime and evening. This home is simple, understated, and spectacular!

Featured Neighborhood | Edgemoor

Our featured home is located in the Edgemoor neighborhood of Bethesda, just west of downtown Bethesda. It 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 close by, 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. 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 this neighborhood, with 3 under construction now, 2 ready to start this summer, and others in the planning phase. And we are proud sponsors of the Edgemoor 5K race.
