This Week's Find is a newly-constructed contemporary home in the Forest Hills neighborhood. The multi-layered house, designed by DC-based architect Janet Bloomberg, takes advantage of its peaceful surroundings a short walk from Rock Creek Park.
Floor-to-ceiling windows are abundant throughout the 7,300 square-foot house, flooding the interior with light and highlighting the park environment around the site. The living room enjoys a remote-controlled gas fireplace and double-height ceilings with stacked windows. The kitchen with marble countertops and a waterfall breakfast bar-island looks into the living space and has a separate pantry with wall-to-wall shelving.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has a wall of windows and a private terrace. Its walk-in closet contains a wall-to-wall organizational system.
In addition to its five other bedrooms, the house also has an extra family room on the second floor, two laundry rooms, a recreation room on the lower level with glass-enclosed wine cellar, a sauna and built-in surround sound.
Each story has an outdoor terrace, and the expansive rear deck includes a heated pool with BADU Stream technology. The house also has an elevator and an interior two-car garage with two electric vehicle charging stations. More details and images below.
