The kitchen, which has been renovated and has plenty of counter and cabinet space, leads out to a garden and off-street parking. The three bedrooms are on the upper level, and there are beautiful plantings that surround the home that have been maintained by the longtime owner.

A Mid-Century Modern with a Central Atrium 

A mid-century enthusiast snatched this Bethesda home up three days after it hit the market, and the home's plentiful outdoor space also likely helped the home move quickly. The centerpiece of that outdoor space is a spacious Brazilian hardwood deck and a porch that runs parallel to the home's floor-to-ceiling windows. Smack in the center of the listing, an atrium encased in glass allows natural light to filter throughout the center of the home. A stone fireplace divides the open concept main living space. The kitchen features built-in shelving, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar and room for a kitchen table. Downstairs, a large, carpeted living area could be perfect for a game or movie room, and a built-in bookshelf and desk could make for the perfect home office. The listing also features a grassy backyard on half an acre of land.
