This Week's Find is a mid-century modern home in Bethesda that screams that it is from the Mad Men era at every turn.
Built in 1963 by the parents of Potomac Pizza founder Adam Greenberg, the couple's passion for woodworking and vibrant interior design is obvious throughout the home.
No two rooms are alike, and the listing is packed with features that harken back to the 1960s - such as an intercom system connected to a record player that was used to play music for parties hosted by the family.
Perhaps the grandest room in the home is the primary sitting room - with vaulted ceilings with accented wooden beams, floor-to-ceiling windows, a chandelier, a grand fireplace and a wet bar with a hidden window to the kitchen.
Eccentric wallpaper themes throughout the house include tiger print, floral stripes, vertical black and brown chevron, feathers, false brick and red and white porcelain. The flooring includes variegated black tile, white and brown tile and various colored carpets in the bedrooms.
"It might be dated, but we think it's cool," Greenberg told UrbanTurf.
Throughout the years, Greenberg's father built a variety of additions, including the primary suite, which used to be a carport. Several of the bedrooms feature wall-to-tall armoires with built-in desk areas.
The basement features a boat-shaped bar area that has working headlights and barstool seating. It was designed by a friend of Greenberg's father who was an avid boater.
