Inspired and timeless, striking and soothing, understated elegance abounds in this Thomson & Cooke architectural masterpiece, skillfully executed by Magruder Design Build as the builder's personal residence and finished with the bespoke styling of renowned interior designer Erica Burns. Completed in 2019 and featured in Southern Home magazine, this 7000+SF home blends thoughtful touches of hidden pocket doors, cased arches, mixed material use of wood, stone and metal, reclaimed wood ceiling beams, and a neutral color palette to create spaces that are comfortable, elegant, and sophisticated. Sited on a cul de sac, the circular drive beckons one to the generous front porch replete with gas lamps. In the gracious foyer, the exquisite curved staircase welcomes guests, and a deep cased arch leads into the sunlit family room with one of four fireplaces and oversized slider doors that open to the expansive outdoor terraces. In the kitchen, the custom milled white cabinetry, honed quartz counters, and top-of-the-line appliances await, and the specially designed banquette and farmhouse table in the breakfast room complete the scene. From the kitchen, through the stunning butler's pantry enter into the spacious yet intimate dining room with fireplace and specially designed round table. Awash with high gloss lacquered walls that are classic, refined, glamorous, and unexpected all at once, the library and the adjacent owners' suite are serene, unpretentious, and calming. The white-on-white primary bath repeats the arch motif over the tub, and features dual vanities as well as dual commodes, and generous shower. A refined powder room with a hand-cut stone vanity top as its centerpiece is hidden off the foyer behind an inset door hidden in the cased arch. Finishing off the main level is a cheerful multipurpose work/control center/mudroom/laundry off the kitchen. The upper floor showcases three bedroom suites and a second laundry area. The largest suite has a living /TV room entry, arched hall into the bed chamber, a couture ready bath, and boutique inspired touches throughout. The soothing guest suite has a meditative zen aura, and the third bedroom delights the senses with the dramatic flair of its navy blue walls. The lower level is ushered in with a glass door entry into the wine tasting room with exposed brick wall and custom wine storage, a fifth bedroom with full bath, a state-of-the-art fitness room, and the panelled, club-like recreation room with hidden doors, second full kitchen with bar, a powder room, and ample storage rooms. To finish this striking home, the entire rear offers sublime terraces, a covered porch with authentic swing, gas fire pit and grill area, and a stone staircase that leads down to the hot tub and outdoor shower surrounded by impressive stone privacy walls. Adjacent to the Edgemoor footpath to downtown Bethesda, mature landscaping frames the property with lush greenery and perennials. Ample parking is found in the curved driveway and detached garage. Construction specs include zoned HVAC, dual hot water heaters, a generator, and a low maintenance exterior comprised of solid brick and cedar, an eco slate roof, and copper gutters. The custom furnishings of designer Erica Burns are offered to complete the sale.
