A Gurney Glass House in Bethesda

Over in the Edgemoor section of Bethesda, the block terminates at this contemporary house, designed by architect Robert M. Gurney. Clean lines and floor to ceiling windows define both the interior and exterior of the house, and the stairwell at the center has glass guards and is backlit by a double height wall of windows. The formal dining room has a wall of windows opposite a bar area set into a wall of cabinets, and there is a sunroom-like breakfast room in a separate corner. Windows take up much of the walls on either side of a slab fireplace in the living room, while the kitchen has a wall of windows instead of a backsplash, as well as marble tile floors, a double-length countertop, and a concealed fridge. The bedrooms are across two wings on either side of the second story landing, which doubles as a sitting room and has walls on windows on two sides. The house also includes an interior two car garage, a pool and a pool deck.

The second bedroom has one exposed brick and one corrugated concrete wall, and its bath has steel blue subway tiles lining the side by side shower and tub stalls.
