Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a retired architect. This is our primary home but my wife and I want to spend time with our children and grandchildren who are on the west coast. We plan to spend extended stays in San Diego and Portland OR and are going to try renting our house out for the months when we're gone.

Why the Owner Chose Bethesda, MD, USA:
We owned a big old country house in Chevy Chase in DC. Eventually Carol's parents were gone and then the kids moved out. We searched the DC area for a good neighborhood to down size into and found this house. It was an empty wreck, just what I wanted as an architect. We gutted it and built what we wanted, everything but the brick walls, floor joists, roof rafters and a few of the windows are new. The location has everything we want within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everyone who comes to our house loves it. It's beautiful and comfortable. It works well for just us or for parties or visiting relatives. The back yard and patio are soothing with the sound of a gentle waterfall. The house feels spacious but is not grand but intimate feeling. The house was written up as a feature article in the Washington Post Real Estate Section.
