Bethesda Modern Home in Edgemoor Reaps Design Awards!What happens when you combine a modern exterior design with a sleek, brand new interior in the middle of traditional suburban Bethesda bliss? You get a Washingtonian Design award-winning residence that revels in the beauty of architecture. Our listing on at 5104 Hampden Lane, designed by famed architect Robert Gurney is known for his ultra-modern masterpieces that put residences above the fold.
This home, located in the coveted Edgemoor neighborhood (Downtown Bethesda), is decorated in concrete blocks and geometric windows, measuring 2,200 square feet of living space and an extra 1,100 square feet of outdoor space located on its rooftop terrace. Surprisingly, it’s a third smaller than the original home that was torn down to give way to this fantastic renovation.
The entire lot size amounts to a little less than 9,000 square feet; the perfect space for a luxurious outdoor swimming pool. With four bedrooms, three full baths and three half baths – you’d think this house was over packed with barely-there space.
But that’s just what the three jurors swooned over when picking this lot, and six other designs, out of 86 homes. This Bethesda Modern Marvel serves up incredible functionality with an airy, open feel. You can walk into this home to a tile-floored entryway with a two-story ceiling. Then venture through every nook and cranny on black walnut floors to a spacious living room/dining room, backed by an open gourmet kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and a breakfast bar. There’s also plenty of closet space and built in storage – all custom designed. Oh yeah, and the rooftop deck...
