Silver Spring | MD
Ingenious design, organic materials and a mindfulness of the environment. Those and many other details make this five-bedroom, four-bath (3 full, 2 half) new home smart and modern, and just as important, elegant and efficient. The facade evokes a Frank Lloyd Wright design, with its minimal lines and large panes of glass windows. The stacked-stone exterior, with black wrought-iron balcony and window trim, as well as the neutral monochromatic colors, all combine to give a sleek, contemporary flair! The interiors are no exception, featuring the same color and design theme with open, flowing spaces and smartly-placed appliances & fixtures.
From the flagstone covered porch, the front door opens into a gracious FOYER that flows into a large RECREATION ROOM. The floors are lined with polished concrete for easy maintenance. A HOME OFFICE/DEN with a closet, and a HALF-BATH with linear lighting and a floating vanity, and a huge storage closet also make up this ground level. The closet, identical in size to one on every level of the home, has been designed to accommodate a future elevator, should the owners desire. The den can serve as an additional bedroom.
The stairs to the upper levels WOW with their open design and huge panes of corner windows that stretch to the soaring ceiling, creating a bright & airy feel throughout. The 10-foot ceilings and a stacked-stone veneer accent wall add another WOW factor as one comes off the stairs, which flow right into the FAMILY ROOM.
A linear, remote-controlled natural gas fireplace, flanked by a pair of vertical picture windows, highlight the open family room that also features LED recessed lights. A second HALF-BATH is off of here, as is a huge storage closet (or a future elevator). White oak wide planks line the floors on this floor and the upper-level hallway. A wall of oversized sliding glass doors access the large covered patio.
To the left, the spacious GOURMET KITCHEN is any chef’s dream with an oversized center island topped with bright-white Quartz countertop with an overhead linear light pendant. The cabinetry is engineered veneer for a natural and clean look, as is the textured porcelain tile backsplash. Brand new stainless-steel appliances include Jenn-Air refrigerator and a six-burner gas stove that can be programmed to cook many popular dishes, including steaks, with a touch of a button! There’s a large walk-in pantry, a side window, as well as touch-free, under-cabinet lighting and a USB charging station for phones & other electronic devices.
The attached DINING ROOM can accommodate a banquet-size table, and has a side door accessing a balcony overlooking the front. Oversized double windows in the dining room also overlook the front. All windows throughout the home are cased with wood trim, as are the glass sliders to the patio/deck. The PATIO/DECK, built with fiber cement and flagstone for durability, is open and flows onto the lawn, and can be screened-in if desired. A modern lighted overhead fan, recessed LED lights and built-in speakers come together to make this fabulous, open-air patio ideal for outdoor entertaining. The leveled yard is fenced-in for privacy. Dual air-conditioning units and a large storage closet sit discreetly in a separate covered area to the left of the patio.
Four bedrooms, three full baths and the laundry room are part of this expansive level, with 9-foot ceilings. All the rooms have plush carpeting. The OWNERS’ SUITE at the end of the hall stretches from one side of the home to the other. It features wide-plank white oak flooring like the main level. Vertical picture windows flanking a trio of highly-placed casement windows at the rear wall highlight the master bedroom, which also features a contemporary lighted ceiling fan and recessed lights. A dual-entry walk-in closet is huge; the owner has the option to customize this space.
The MASTER BATH, like the rest of the house, has a clean, sleek look with his/hers floating vanities, an oversized glass-enclosed shower with a built-in bench, separate soaking tub and bright-white textured porcelain tiles. Large casement windows offer lots of natural light. BEDROOM 2 is a full suite and has a large side window, a walk-in closet and a private FULL BATH with a shower/tub combination and a floating single vanity.
BEDROOMS 2 & 3 have generous windows and closets, and connect to a Jack-and-Jill BATH with floating double vanities, a tub/shower combination, a large window and porcelain floors and tub/shower surround. The front bedroom has floor-to-ceiling picture windows for a great view of the front. The LAUNDRY ROOM has upgraded washer/dryer and a utility sink, and a huge CLOSET complete this level. The closet here, like those on all levels, can accommodate an elevator if preferred. The attached two-car GARAGE has a wide driveway for extra parking.
This new construction — with easy access to downtown Silver Spring and Washington, D.C. (the Takoma Park Metro is just a mile away!) — offers all the detailed makings of a smart, energy-efficient home that’s modern & elegant. Welcome home!

Silver Spring is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) located inside the Capital Beltway in Montgomery County, Maryland. It had a population of 76,716 according to 2013 estimates by the United States Census Bureau, making it the fourth most populous place in Maryland, after Baltimore, Columbia, and Germantown. Silver Spring consists of the following neighborhoods; Downtown Silver Spring, East Silver Spring, Woodside, Woodside Park, North Hills Sligo Park, Long Branch, Montgomery Knolls, Franklin Knolls, Indian Spring Terrace, Indian Spring Village, Clifton Park Village, New Hampshire Estates, and Oakview. The urbanized, oldest, and southernmost part of Silver Spring is a major business hub that lies at the north apex of Washington, D.C. The community has recently undergone a significant renaissance, with the addition of major retail, residential, and office developments. Silver Spring takes its name from a mica-flecked spring discovered there in 1840 by Francis Preston Blair, who subsequently bought much of the surrounding land. Acorn Park, tucked away in an area of south Silver Spring away from the main downtown area, is believed to be the site of the original spring.
At the beginning of the 21st century, downtown Silver Spring began to see the results of redevelopment. Several city blocks near City Place Mall were completely reconstructed to accommodate a new outdoor shopping plaza called “Downtown Silver Spring. Beginning in 2004, the downtown redevelopment was marketed locally with the “silver sprung” advertising campaign, which declared on buses and in print ads that Silver Spring had “sprung” and was ready for business.In June 2007, The New York Times noted that downtown was “enjoying a renaissance, a result of public involvement and private investment that is turning it into an arts and entertainment center.” Downtown Silver Spring hosts several entertainment, musical, and ethnic festivals, the most notable of which are the Silverdocs documentary film festival held each June and hosted by Discovery Communications and the American Film Institute, as well as the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade (Saturday before Thanksgiving) for Montgomery County. The Silver Spring Jazz Festival has become the biggest event of the year drawing 20,000 people to the free festival held on the second Saturday in September. Silver Spring is serviced by the Brunswick Line of the MARC Train, Metrorail Red Line, Metrobus, Ride On, and the free VanGo. The bus terminal at the Silver Spring Rail Station is the busiest in the entire Washington Metro Area and provides connections between several transit services, including those mentioned above. This transit facility serves nearly 60,000 passengers daily.
