An Award-Winning Craftsman 

This Silver Spring craftsman won the Best in Living Home award from Professional Builder Magazine nearly 20 years ago. The owner, who designed the four-bedroom home, used lots of warm wood, which can be seen in the door and window frames, crown molding, cabinetry and exposed living room ceiling beams. The primary suite on the main floor has a gas fireplace, radiant heat floors and a large spa-like bath with a soaking tub, a glass door-less walk-in shower and dual vanities. A wet bar stands out in the basement entertainment space and French doors lead to the backyard and hot tub area. A wrap-around front porch is perfect for entertaining on summer evenings.

The primary suite has 12-foot ceilings, peacock wallpaper and dual closets with an organization system, and a rooftop solar setup will save the future owner on electricity costs.
