In Bethesda, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom modernist house built in 2011 boasts bright spaces, brick veneer, and fiber-cement siding. It was designed by Bethesda-based architect Tom Shiner and draws on Scandinavian influences, according to the listing agent, Michael Shapiro of Compass. The home has two level and is currently listing for $1,650,000.

The property lot is roughly 6,000 square feet and also includes a detached studio building (with solar panels on top), a fenced lawn, and gardens. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances and lots of cabinets. Sliding glass doors in the dining room walk out to a sizable terrace, and there is parking too. Little Falls Stream Valley Park is nearby, to the southwest.

The house is situated right across the District’s Northwest border with Maryland at 4798 Western Avenue. It is about a 20-minute walk from the Friendship Heights Metro station.
