$20,000 Premium For a Silver Spring Home With Mid-Century Feel 

This Silver Spring listing, with an airy and slightly mid-century modern feel, went under contract about four days after hitting the market and recently sold for $20,000 above its asking price. A stone fireplace in the formal living room acts as a focal point of the main level and a rounded window lets in ample light. An "L" shaped kitchen includes marble counters, light wood cabinetry, a curved breakfast bar area, a fishbone backsplash and entry to the screened patio. There's an office on the main floor that features lots of built-in shelving, perfect for an at-home library collection. An open basement might need some renovation but it has a fireplace and bar area - making it a great game or multi-purpose room. The spacious backyard features a pool and a gazebo for summer gatherings.
