Our single family residential projects are typically owner occupied. One has become an exception to that rule: the Bethesda Renovation/Addition. In this total gut renovation and addition project, a non-descript 1950's house was radically transformed. You may recall this blog post about the project, written during the design process.
The house is nearing completion, and is now a gracious 4,500 sq 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom contemporary home on cul-de-sac in Bethesda's exclusive Fort Sumner neighborhood, minutes from Washington DC.
Although in love with their new home, after an unusually long construction process due to a change in contractors, the owners have decided to sell the property. That decisions presents potential buyers with the rare opportunity to own a brand new, custom designed residence that was not a quick-flip led by developers, but a carefully designed, sourced, and constructed luxurious residence. 5006 Wyandot Ct, Bethesda MD, is a truly unique home, and is being offered at the price of $2,000,000. For the official listing, go here.
In addition to bright, spacious rooms throughout, the nearly finished home includes several unusual perks such as a gourmet kitchen with cabinets from Zampieri Cucine and high quality appliances (Miele ovens and built-in coffee maker, Wolf induction cooktop, and Liebherr built-in refrigerator), high end LED lighting throughout, 2 fireplaces, a large master suite with open dressing room and master bath (which includes a steam shower, soaking tub and custom concrete sink), several integral plaster accent walls, a large lower level recreation room with direct access to the backyard at grade, a large home gym/playroom. In addition, sustainable materials and practices were used throughout this home.
Some finishing touches still need to be applied, but the first open house took place on 7/15/17. Interest is already high.
