A private sitting room off the dining area is accessible through two glass French doors, and the primary suite, with a full bathroom, is located on the top story. The private rentable basement includes tiled flooring, a full kitchen with granite counters and a walk-out exit to the backyard.

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.
