Walking out from the huge sliding doors in the living room, the tiered patio features a fire pit and deck, and there's also a jacuzzi and grassy area below. The basement features a designated mirrored workout room and a wet bar with a clear beverage fridge.

A Seven-Bedroom Castle in Bethesda 

This castle-like Tudor property sits on just over an acre of land and was once owned by Harry Edwards, the architect who built Greenwich Forest of Bethesda. The indoor aesthetic rivals the drama of the exterior with a large fireplace, old-growth chestnut beams, and high ceilings. The back pond and gardens can be seen through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the white kitchen. A unique room featuring two skylights and a small loft with a ladder could make for the perfect studio. An enclosed glass solarium on the main floor is climate controlled and offers views of the grassy lawn beyond.
