“This home’s position offers privacy and access to nature via the large architectural windows which brings the outdoors in, a Mid-Century Modern principle. Walkability to Rock Creek Shopping Center just a block away! There are not many locations in the city where you get over 4,000 square feet spread across 2 spacious floors, a garage, and almost 1/5th of an acre adjacent to a national park. The main level has 2 distinct wings adjoined by the foyer. On 1 side is a large living room with a fireplace as its centerpiece, a dining room ready to host, a chef’s kitchen with a wolf gas range, a double oven, a pantry, solid wood cabinets and new quartz countertops. Off the kitchen is a large eat-in kitchen and space for your home office. On the other side of the home is the sleeping wing with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All 3 bedrooms are spacious. Storage challenges will be a thing of the past with 8 closets on this wing of the home!”

“The lower level has a large rec room with multiple zones for relaxing, playing, working from home, connecting, home schooling and entertaining. Also off this space is a second fireplace, a laundry center, and a kitchenette saving you a trip upstairs when you want a drink or a snack. On this floor is the 4th bedroom with a luxurious bathroom that has both a standup shower and an imported Italian soaking tub. A mud room, 2 more large closets and a 2 car garage complete this home. The backyard is fenced with an extensive slate patio, a brick oven and a flat green yard with professionally landscaped flower beds. Minutes from downtown D.C., Bethesda and downtown Silver Spring. Walk to shops, restaurants, serene trails of Rock Creek Park and the Purple Line’s upcoming Laytonsville Station.”

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.

Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
