For so many years, Arts & Crafts homes seemed to be popping up everywhere. And Sandy Spring Builders was well-known for building those homes. But with our knowledgeable team and collaboration with great architects and quality subcontractors, we can build anything. One such home was this modern gem designed by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA for our client in Bethesda. From the moment you first enter this home you notice the clean lines, openness and light. The open riser stairs and glass rails ascend to a large window and draw your eye up and away to beautiful view of the trees and sky. The open Kitchen, Breakfast, Family Room with floor to ceiling glass that overlooks a picturesque and private back yard with pool, spa & patio are spectacular. The floor to ceiling windows have black metal frames which work nicely with the modern look of the home. The floor to ceiling glass in the Kitchen goes from the countertop to ceiling and you get the feeling like you’re outside. This is a real hidden gem in close-in Bethesda, and we are proud to be the builder.
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.
