A Family Four-Bedroom in Silver Spring

This house in Silver Spring has been on the market for 81 days, but its four-bed, four-bath layout with a big backyard makes a lot of sense for a family looking to get more space for their money. It features lots of charming accents like exposed brick, built-ins, and fireplaces, as well as practical conveniences, like a finished basement.
