Currently owned by a Lockheed Martin SVP, the home has 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and 7,565 square feet of living space. Amenities include a home theater, a dog shower, and a lower level bar. The lot is 0.33 acres.
The Bannockburn neighborhood of Bethesda, where the home is located, has a median sale price of $1.2 million. Commenters on DCUrbanMom had the following to say about it:
“A neighborhood for oddball houses and people.”
“It certainly attracts people who don’t fit the ‘Bethesda’ stereotype. It’s a very community-oriented, nature loving kind of a place, with a past history of activism against racism and other societal ills.”
Exterior – 5.0
Not as compelling as this previous take on the same model. While neither are winning a beauty pageant, the colors and materials on the first created a much more memorable look. Judging by the Google earth snap, it must stick out like a sore thumb, unless there’s been more teardowns on the cul-de-sac.
Interior – 6.0
Seems too vanilla for this exterior and price. If I was going for this home, I would some edge, or a feeling of opulence. It starts out with the right idea, with the thick detailing and crazy light, and you get some glimpses in the basement, but overall it’s stale. Particularly in the primary bedroom.
Kitchen – 5.4
It seems like they at least tried to make it flashy, though it ends up falling short. Way too much grey, and how does that curtain fit into all of this?
Bathrooms – 6.3
Don’t really like the grey here either. But good enough layout. The shower is nicely sized, and you can check yourself out in the huge mirror across from it. Secondaries are pretty ugly – none of the showers make any sense to me. I’m editing this later and don’t know why I gave this as high of a score as I did.
Amenities – 6.8
The dog shower will certainly appeal to a lot of families, and the wine cellar/wet bar to many adults. You do get some nice extras with the theater (which needs a bigger screen), deck, etc, but nothing that makes it above and beyond for this price range.
Overall – 5.9
