Property Description

Welcome to 6917 Persimmon Tree Road, a stylish brick contemporary sited on an exclusive, spacious corner lot in an incomparable location. A rare expanded Pineview model in sought-after and historically significant Carderock Springs, this home offers the livability afforded by a spacious, traditional two-story floor plan without sacrificing any of the mid-century modern style originally conceived by visionary developer Edmund Bennett and renowned DC architects Keyes, Lethbridge & Condon. The architectural significance is immediately apparent upon entry, where one is greeted by a minimalist solid-timber staircase illuminated by two-story windows. To the right, a cozy living room offers a quiet space for post-dinner retreats or can serve as the perfect home office. To the left, a possible main level bedroom introduces the flexibility afforded by the spacious, 3,800 square foot floor plan. At the heart of any home is the kitchen — in this case boasting ample counter space, high-end cabinetry, and Subzero appliances. In true open-concept fashion, the kitchen is open to a large family room with vaulted ceilings, a spectacular window-walled sunroom, and an embassy-sized dining room, offering private access to the lush rear lawn. An expandable, attached one-car garage completes the main level. Upstairs, the owner’s suite once again boasts mid-century modern vaulted ceilings, in addition to a private balcony offering idyllic wooded views, and a newly-renovated ensuite bath. Three additional light-filled bedrooms on the upper level each offer ample storage space and are served by a fully renovated hall bath. The lower level provides even more accommodation via an ample bedroom with a large walk-in closet and third full bath, plus recreational space, abundant storage, and laundry facilities. Out back, enjoy a fully fenced backyard from the expanded flagstone patio with direct access to the main level. Adjacent to a 3-acre park, it is easy to forget that the home is situated in close-in Bethesda, moments away from the Beltway, Carderock Swim and Tennis Club, and the assigned elementary school. Factor in the spacious floor plan, unique architecture, and nationally renowned Whitman/Pyle/Carderock school pyramid, and 6917 Persimmon Tree is an opportunity not to be missed!
