One of the prettiest Washington, D.C. bedroom communities is on the Maryland side in Bethesda. Popular with home buyers for its wooded neighborhoods, parks and proximity to the Potomac River, Bethesda is a short drive into downtown Washington.
Built in 1933, the same year the Berlin-based Bauhaus School was closed by the Nazi regime for being a socialist concept, a Bauhaus-inspired house was built overlooking a reservoir between Bethesda and Washington near the river. That house is now for sale.
Designed with simple straight lines and an occasional round window, in direct opposition to the previous Victorian curlicue style, all the riotous patterns, colors and curves were best left to the surrounding grounds of rolling lawns, flowering shrubs and water view. Sited on 2.5 lush acres with pool and tennis court, the 7,600-square-foot house has six bedrooms, eight baths, large formal rooms and two family rooms. There are many floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights, a sun room, fireplaces, private terraces and a private sundeck off the master. Original Bauhaus style, priced at $8.8 million.
