Villages of Bethesda is an elegant mews of 21 town homes developed by luxury home builder Larry Brant in 1999. Four groups of homes create one of the most interesting features of community: a courtyard that connects all 21 homes, affording functionality of a single family home with the front door of each home entering on the main living level, unlike traditional town homes requiring a set of stairs from a garage level. The courtyard is beautifully landscaped - a pleasant place to sit and lovely space to look on to from each home. (An echo of Gramercy Park?) Another bonus of this setup is that below the courtyard, accessed by the driveway of Edgemoor Lane, is a common garage that accommodates eight guest parking spaces. And this is the access for each home’s individual private 2 car garage - neat! *** In the heart of downtown Bethesda, the location is right across the street from the Bethesda library, a block from the Bethesda Metro station, 3 blocks north of Bethesda Row and 3 blocks south from Old Bethesda (as us locals call it). To list all the shopping and restaurants would take a separate flyer – needless to say, everything you need is in carless proximity. *** Completed in 2011 and a culmination of 2 years and more than $500,000, this to-the-studs renovation is a complete transformation from traditional to modern - in aesthetics and in function. The former side hallway/living room/dining/kitchen is now a stunning example of today’s must-have open concept living. The well regarded Stuart Kitchens of Bethesda in collaboration with Ferguson ProVisions and Architectural Ceramics, all working closely with the owners to create their dream kitchen and baths. *** General features built in to the home include a complete Gramophone whole house control system, including HVAC, Lutron lighting and Crestron audio. All can be accessed by several control panels thru-out the house and can also be set up on an iPad. Silhouette shades thru-out the house are also controlled by remotes. 8 televisions (including 2 home theaters) are pre-wired thru-out the home, all but the one in the garage have built-in ceiling speakers. There are 5 Rinnai tankless water heaters on the roof, yes, just for this house. The house security system includes camera monitoring from the doorbell and 3 other cameras front and back, all with audio alert. *** The living area features full home theater with front and top speaker channels plus a built in subwoofer (action movie fans rejoice!). Below the TV screen is contemporary gas fireplace creating a mesmerizing flame band. *** The kitchen could be its own brochure: Stuart Kitchen upped their game when creating the owners’ dream. An expanse of Galaxy black granite counters includes a breakfast-bar peninsula with seating for three. There is also an oversized island with a gleaming white quartz top framed with the matching black granite and offers additional seating for two. Anchored by the stainless Subzero fridge and 36” Wolf stove with 4 burners plus full depth griddle, there is a below counter microwave drawer, under-counter Subzero refrigerated beverage drawers and an under-counter commercial ice-maker – nice. Details details: the 3 pendant lights over the peninsula are Schonbek crystal, custom ordered to match the colors from the backsplash tiles. The dining area is spacious and airy with a large triple window overlooking a private patio and the lovely community private courtyard. This level is completed with the powder room highlighted by a dramatic tapered column pedestal sink and an attention grabbing ‘wavy tile’ accent wall by Porcelanosa. *** The second level has a bright open den with great window expanse - a perfect lounge retreat or indulgent home office. Remotely shut the blinds and enjoy the home’s second home theater. There a second fireplace in this space. *** The owner’s suite encompasses the entire width of the home and faces the tranquil courtyard. There is a large walk-thru closet completely outfitted with a tall double dresser and ample shelving & hanging space. The master bath features heated flooring, elaborate tiling, sculptural freestanding tub, beautiful glass-enclosed multi head shower (Porcelanosa tile in shower), double vanity with vessel sinks and Robern medicine cabinets with heated mirror, interior plug and nite-lite feature and a built-in TV facing the tub with recessed ceiling speakers. *** The top floors feature 2 generous bedrooms each with en suite full bath with the continued theme of beautiful tile and fixtures. (Lucky children or guests will not want to leave!) *** The lower level is no throw away. Entering from the garage, there is a clever shoe drop alcove (mud nook?) with a bench facing a shoe & stuff cabinet. Adjacent is good sized room perfect as a home office, hobby room or exercise space – heated floor and the TV with the ceiling mounted speakers! There is a closet with an electronic lock for valuables and in that closet a fire and water rated safe for the more seriously valuable valuables. *** Even the garage deserves special mention with commercial grade epoxy floor coating and of course a TV, the only one without ceiling speakers – still fine for that zoom yoga class. *** The often used phrase “totally renovated” is rarely realized to the extent of this wonderful home. It is truly a unique opportunity in the perfect downtown Bethesda location.
