The Coolest Pool in Bethesda

This California contemporary was built on a two-acre lot that used to be part of a historical mining operation. While the interior has many standout features, such as wood planking that lines the lofted ceilings and other contemporary design choices, it may be what is on the outside that really sets the house apart. There is a tucked away, picturesque pool that is accompanied by a brick patio, and then a short trail that leads to a small structure that could make the ideal art studio or playhouse. The primary suite includes its own bathroom and a fireplace, and the fully finished basement includes recreation space and storage. 

  • Full Listing: 7307 Nevis Road (map)
  • Price: $1,599,000
  • Bedrooms: Three
  • Bathrooms: Three
  • Square Feet: 2,650
