Prime quarter acre on the Arc of Parkwood Terrace! Mid-Century Modern Contemporary home fans out along angled lot lines, leading to a private path to Rock Creek Park and Trail! You can bike or drive to Grosvenor Metro in 5 minutes, or stroll there via the Park & Beach Drive. This unique home features expansive spaces flooded with light from a dozen skylights, transoms, and soaring Glass Walls. Cathedral Ceilings enhance the light ,airy, open feel and durable tile, marble, and acid-stained concrete floors on the main level make this home ONE OF A KIND! Designer programmable lighting includes suspended cable, track, pinspots, recessed and concealed low voltage lights. Anderson glass doors and windows surround the private slate patio, bringing the outdoors in. Have your morning coffee and enjoy panoramic views of The Park!. On the public side of your home, a ribbon of Pella windows with internal shades give you light but offer privacy if you wish. The open Great Room will host a holiday gathering, from the gracious entry with seating , coat closet, an art wall, an intimate conversation space by the wood burning fireplace, and dining for a dozen! The gourmet galley kitchen has stainless Viking and KitchenAid appliances, maple and glass cabinets, featuring accent lighting as well as custom touches -a spring-loaded mixer cabinet, pantry cabinet and plate & cookware drawers. Adjacent to the kitchen is a huge walk-in pantry, which is shared with the Media Room. A long granite wet bar with a wine fridge, rests on hand crafted cabinetry for party necessities. The Powder Room, hallway and game closet, are by the glass door to the quiet side patio and Studio Entry. The bay window seat in the Studio foyer creates a peaceful reading nook next to the Studio/Family Room. The 16 foot ceilings in this spectacular space oversee grand celebrations or quiet evenings by the dry laid stone hearth (a Mendota Gas Fireplace) surrounded by nature. Your work/living /studio is anchored by a 27 foot Artisan Bookcase topped by transom windows. You can work or muse at the expansive 12 foot desk in a glass bay, taking in the green space surrounding your home. Entertaining goes from inside out thru the 4 sets of sliding doors to the private slate patio and Park beyond. The Primary Bedroom wing is a woodland refuge! Watch as the seasons change, relaxed on your 10 foot bay window seat (concealing a drawer and a cedar storage chest ) under cathedral ceilings, with sunlight streaming thru your glass walls. Then in the evenings, enjoy the peace of a cylindrical Rais gas stove and sleep in privacy with Hunter Douglas horizontal shades. Two distinct dressing areas with built-ins and a vanity are separate from the large bath with glassed-in shower & Bain-Ultra tub,. An outfitted Laundry completes your private retreat. Guests or family can stay in the main level Bedroom with a tiled full bath just off the Great Room. Stairs to the second floor have a stained forged iron and wood railing. At the sunlit mezzanine, a large walk-in attic with cedar closet is over the carport . The second level has a linen closet, a third bedroom with bookcase stairs leading to a cozy sleeping loft over a walk-in closet. The spacious, skylit fourth bedroom/office overlooks the Park with lovely views from the transom and corner windows. This home is framed in wood and steel, sheathed in low maintenance materials and has a 40 year Architectural grade shingle roof. I hope you enjoy it as much as the owner/agent has!
