It is not every day that opportunities like this present themselves. We forever hear that location is the most essential aspect of any home because it is the one thing that cannot be changed. As land dwindles in our increasingly developed region, this importance becomes ever more apparent. 6500 Bradley Boulevard is unique in that it represents a handful of remaining properties not yet constrained by the opposing forces of location and space. One of the largest residential parcels located within the Beltway, comprising a total of 3.8 acres of land creates endless possibilities to build one of the finest estates in the Capital Region or subdivide into a spectacular new multiple-home community at the center of one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. The existing primary residence should not be overlooked, presenting an opportunity in and of itself. A spectacular, original mid-century contemporary, the home has been lovingly improved throughout the years while maintaining a certain retro charm. Step into a bold formal reception area, with checkered marble flooring and accent lighting, introducing a unique floor plan so distinct from today's mainstream, cookie-cutter homes. Straight ahead is the formal living room overlooking the rear lawn, suitable in scale for an embassy, with parquet flooring and a mid-century modern fireplace. The formal dining room is once again fit for a banquet and has its own set of large picturesque windows with lush views. The sunroom has windows on three sides and even above, with a skylight letting in the midday sun. A gentleman's library and marble-tiled kitchen featuring a separate full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer complete the public areas of the home. Nestled in its own wing, the owner's suite provides a true retreat, with an ample sitting area lined with custom built-in cabinets and a step-down sleeping area that connects to a spa-inspired bath lined with Carrara marble. Entertaining was a priority in designing this residence, with a lower level featuring an elegantly curved, paneled bar and multiple seating areas, reminiscent of the trendiest lounges from decades ago. In the rear, the vast, level lawn contains a full-size inground swimming pool overlooked by a loggia, tucked away to allow for alfresco dining in total privacy. Further along the rear of the property sits a fully-finished guest house with limitless possibilities, perfect for remote working, a retreat, or even a private meditation studio in the woods. Located an equidistant five minutes from downtown Bethesda and the I-495 entrance, 6500 Bradley Boulevard offers location, space, and most importantly, potential.
