Perched on 5 privately forested acres off River Road, the design by Douglas Bothner seems to float amongst the trees, with direct access to the Sandy Branch Creek. This house has been submitted for prestigious architectural awards, including the AIA Maryland and AIA Baltimore awards. “THE STRIKING FACADE” The home’s arresting yet organic facade features shou sugi ban, a traditional Japanese charred cypress wood siding technique producing a rich ebony tone and texture. “THE SERENE, MINIMALIST INTERIOR” Inside, the open, symmetrical floor plan celebrates minimalism, serenity, and exquisite luxury finishes. Smooth Italian tile floors flow throughout, complemented by polished concrete surfaces and countertops of pristine quartz. Two lengthy walls of floor-to-ceiling glass in the central living area create a pavilion-like feel, framing panoramic woodland views while connecting to the well-appointed bedroom suites at either end. “THE THOUGHTFUL LAYOUT” Adhering to feng shui principles, the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath layout positions the sumptuous primary suite in the auspicious northeast corner and the generous in-law suite in the southeast. Two architecturally sculptural staircases with floating treads and glass railings access the lower-level recreation spaces, including two additional en-suite bedrooms, a large recreation room with projector and media capabilities, fully outfitted laundry room, and mudroom with built-in storage. “LUXURIOUS AMENITIES” No luxury detail was spared, from the sleek kitchen with top-tier appliances integrated into the minimalist cabinetry to the lavish bathrooms featuring oversized glass-enclosed showers and massive walk-in closets with custom systems.

The home enjoys direct access to a private creekside setting along the Sandy Branch, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in natural surroundings. “SUSTAINABLE, GREEN DESIGN” The architectural concrete, steel, and wood forms meld seamlessly into the landscape through brilliant green design elements like micro bioretention planters filtering rainwater at the home’s corners, while dramatically suspended rain chains create a sculptural water feature. The pervious driveway allows runoff to absorb on-site, and the residence connects to municipal sewage, minimizing environmental impact. Energy-efficient insulation contributes to the sustainable LEED-inspired design. “A PRIME POTOMAC LOCATION” Conveniently located just minutes from elite educational institutions, this internationally-inspired contemporary sanctuary has been nominated for multiple prestigious architectural awards. A transcendent work of art uniting innovative design with nature, opportunities like this are exceptionally rare in Potomac’s lush woodlands.
