A Park-Like Backyard in Silver Spring

Beyond the patio-esque front porch, the house enters into a wide living room, with the fireplace on the opposite wall flanked by short recessed shelving units. The galley kitchen has coral-painted cabinets, varnished wooden ceiling beams and double exposure, and provides access to a family room. A screened-in-porch at the back of the house has a vaulted ceiling with exposed wooden trusses, and is surrounded by windows which frame views of the forested backyard. Stairs on the other end of the porch lead down to a deck, which then walks down again to a another deck, also accessible from the rec room and bedroom.
