Out back, brick walls and an open-air garage door frame the multi-use parking area.

For the Avid Entertainer in Silver Spring

This home in Silver Spring has an airy and slightly mid-century modern feel. A stone fireplace in the formal living room acts as a focal point 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. A secondary dining room can accommodate larger dinner parties. 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.
