$76,000 Above Asking For Mid-Century Modern Charm
A mid-century enthusiast snatched this Bethesda home up three days after it hit the market for a $76,000 premium. The centerpiece of that outdoor space is a spacious Brazilian hardwood deck and a porch that runs parallel to the home's floor-to-ceiling windows. Smack in the center of the listing, an atrium encased in glass allows natural light to filter throughout the center of the home. A stone fireplace divides the open concept main living space. The kitchen features built-in shelving, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar and room for a kitchen table. Downstairs, a large, carpeted living area could be perfect for a game or movie room, and a built-in bookshelf and desk could make for the perfect home office. The listing also features a grassy backyard on half an acre of land.
