4 Barclay Avenue

If This Week’s Find looks a little out of the ordinary for Takoma Park, it’s because it was inspired by a famous home in California.

With a sunny exterior, fruit trees, and a kitchen garden, this five-bedroom was based on Pasadena’s Gamble House, which was designed to be the ultimate example of a bungalow. The Barclay Avenue listing does look like a bungalow on steroids, with extensive woodworking around every corner, including hand-finished doors, custom cabinetry and a wood-burning “Tulikivi” stove.

Besides California, the home took inspiration from a few other places: the bathtub is designed in a Japanese style, which means it is deeper than typical tubs, with stepped seating.

Other notable features include a third-story study accessible only by ladder, a steam shower, radiant floor heating, and a solarium. More details and photos below.

    The upstairs study areas (2) are accessible by the ladders in the 2nd fl bedrooms, or through doors on the 3rd fl which is accessed by a normal staircase from the 2nd floor.
