This one is not like the other ones. This thoughful renovation is an ultra-modern retake on mid-century modern. You have to see it to believe this breathless, all-new extraordinary renovation in a tranquil setting near public transportation and a 1,754-acre park - easy access, peaceful refuge nearby - all in the confines of the city. This latest renovation, by C2 Contracting, a lauded local design/builder, boasts an airy and contemporary open floor plan. This beautiful, spacious mid-century home in North Portal Estates/Colonial Village has been completely gutted and renovated and updated for today's living. Enter into the foyer - with a clear sight line to the back of the house. No entryway could be complete without a powder room and hall closet - added to facilitate today's lifestyle - with lights embedded in the baseboards all the way up the stairs. The foyer leads seamlessly into an open living room, complete with wood-burning fireplace. Excellent flow as the living room extends to an open dining room/kitchen that pours into a sunlight bonus/sunroom. Open the sliders to the patio, allowing you to extend your living space outside and onto the tiered, roomy backyard. Total of 4 bedrooms/3.5 baths (three BRs/2 BAs up), plus a rec room with outside access and another lower level with a full bedroom and full bath. LED light fixtures abound throughout the home - from the outside lighting (drive by after dusk to get the full effect) to the entry light fixtures to the kitchen/dining room and hallways. The recessed lighting has been placed intentionally - to diffuse the soft light in such a way to maximize use of the light. Modern geometric patterns adorn the 3 full bathrooms: with ceramic tile and/or marble and modern faucets and rain showerheads (a double set in the primary bath). In the kitchen, cabinets (with under-cabinet lighting) blend in wonderfully with the quartz waterfall counters, with matching backsplash, a cafe stove, range hood and an island that seats at least three and conveniently stores the microwave and has space for extra. The stainless appliances showcase thoughtfulness for easy living and include a smart fridge. Here's a bonus: 220 electrical outlet in the attached two-car garage for electric vehicle charging. The basement, with outside access on the first and second level basement, includes space for a TV room, rec room, laundry room and a bedroom and full bath and storage. Further: It is equipped with the electrical and plumbing needed to add a kitchenette, if the new homeowner so desires. Minutes from downtown DC, Bethesda, and Silver Spring, this property is close to the metro/bus lines, as well as shops, and restaurants in nearby Silver Spring, and the many trails at Rock Creek Park. Still not enough? This home is minutes from Walter Reed, a 66-acre development on the historic former army medical center that boasts residential and retail, including Whole Foods, outposts for Children's National Medical Center and the state department, a bi-weekly farmer's market and loads of activities. Needless to say, this home will not last long.
