Maryland’s most beloved neighborhood—and the coolest house! A true retreat, exquisite city style on a quiet street just minutes away from downtown Silver Spring. Every detail of this house has been meticulously planned, perfect condition in the dreamy neighborhood of Woodside.

9212 Midwood Rd., Silver Spring, MD 20910, front elevation

This elegant brick home has traditional elements beautifully blended with modern style, both inside and out. This home has the “must-have” outdoor spaces — an expansive deck cleverly designed to extend your living spaces into a private series of patios and lush lawn. Downton Abbey on this side of the pond! The home’s natural landscape was designed by a master gardener to showcase the colors of every season. Every view is breathtaking.

Interiors

A wide entry foyer is filled with natural light and dramatic views to the living room and exquisite 2 sided gas fireplace. This vent-free gas fireplace is a work of art. The surrounding stone is “Absolute Black” granite with an original classic colonial mantel that sets the tone for this stunning first floor. Original white oak floors gleam with a special glow from the custom lighting.

A see-through hearth gives a glimpse of the built-ins and dreamy space of the custom sunroom. Three walls of windows and a French door exit to the deck and garden patios give a glimpse of the green oasis.

The clever and dramatic entryways to the sunroom are architecturally pleasing. Casement windows frame this sanctuary. Built-in bookcases are crisp and functional. There is plenty of room for a television and books and art.

A glass french door leads to a private deck space. A view to this outside dream awaits. A glass of wine or morning coffeeis the perfect compliment. Check your emails in serenity. Gradually enter reality in a civilized manner.

Gathering:

The dining room stuns with a wall of French doors! The dining room is perfect for today’s lifestyle – elegant and comfortable, perfect for work, play and dining too. Dining rooms are not just for eating anymore.

The Kichler light blends beautifully and functions as a task or soft light for that special dinner. “Stone Harbor” wall colors from Benjamin Moore accent the designer lighting and elegant doors to the garden.

The Cook’s Kitchen: Black and White never goes out of style!

Perfect for work or play while whipping up that special dish from your favorite Food Network favorites! You can be a Barefoot Contessa or a even a Count! A chef’s dream, a Cavaliere commercial grade stove hood works hand in hand with the Architect Series II slide-in range. Two sinks of course! Hans Grohe Faucets and an Expanko Cork floor is just spot on. Glass cabinet doors and shelving allow for some showing off of special dishes or art. “Brick Red” Benjamin Moore wall accents with designer style! Beveled biscuit colored subway tiles frame this super functional space.

The Must Have:

The first floor powder room has the brand names to trust, Kohler and Hans Grohe and a stylish Hexon hexagonal floor tile continues the cool factor of the first floor.

Up the Stairs:

An original wood staircase leads to the haven above. Two bedrooms with two full baths await. The en-suite Master is a dream. Garden and tree-top views will set the mood. A sweet walk-in closet even has a window. Elfa Shelving keeps you organized and looking good! The bath is updated and earth tones soothe.

The second bedroom is another special space. Front and side windows offer additional tree top views. Over-sized with wood floors and even a walk-in closet, Elfa shelving of course!

The hall bath is mere steps away. White Hexon tiles with a subtle pattern, edged to perfection.

The sweet aerie (third floor retreat)

A secret staircase ascends to the top floor. A glass French door draws you up the stairs towards the light. Heart Pine floors stretch the space and your imagination. This third bedroom is a tree top retreat. Windows on either side of the room frame this special space. A deep walk-in closet completes this space. This third bedroom space has so many possibilities.

Landscaped exterior

Three levels of carefully landscaped decks and flagstone patios are reminiscent of an elegant British country house. Azaleas and Abelia (think Honeysuckle) plantings lead your eye to a spectacular early 20th Century cast iron urn that conveys. Lush green grass bordered by river birches and sculpture-like trees frame this pastoral landscape.  400 daffodils are staged to bloom from February to May.

9212 Midwood Rd., Silver Spring, MD 20910, patio and garden

A glass French door allows easy access to the three-level outdoor spaces. Custom crafted flagstone patios and decking flow from the kitchen and dining room. A special area designed for the barbecue, a gas line awaits.

Brick planters enclose this space and frame for the ultimate privacy. Of course there’s already the must-have herbs planted! Reach for lemon thyme, Munstead Lavender plants and a varietal herb garden with sage, parsley, thyme, even lemon verbena. Room to grow your special seeds…or the perfect quiet sancturay to wait for dinner to be delivered,  Downtown Silver Spring has restaurants that deliver savories from every corner of the world and in less than a half hour!

Lower level

Another glass French door leads to the finished basement.

Two distinct finished spaces await. An office or guest space or just the perfect place to watch a movie or the latest show you taped on the DVR. Room for everyone and another powder room. Vintage and function blend together.

A great storage/pantry space awaits. A freezer conveys to make life easier after that run to Costco or the Urban Butcher. Shelving for coolers, suitcases, mixers…everything. Access to the utilities too.

The garage is on this level. Great for bikes and storage. A garage door opener lets you get right out.
