Everyone Wants The Coolest Pool in the County
UrbanTurf deemed that this California contemporary in Bethesda had the coolest pool in Montgomery County and buyers took note: the home sold for $131,000 above asking a few days ago. On the two-acre lot that used to be part of a historical mining operation, the picturesque pool is accompanied by a brick patio, and then a short trail that leads to a small structure that could make the ideal art studio or playhouse. The interior also has many standout features, such as wood planking that lines the lofted ceilings and a primary suite that has its own fireplace.
