Imagine…a long gravel driveway winding through nearly 6 heavily wooded acres that quickly transforms any mindset from the hustle and bustle to the serene and pastoral. Imagine…at the end of the driveway getting out of your car and walking up a wood chip path, lined with azaleas, ferns, and daffodils. You might pause along the path to peer through the woods to watch two meandering streams converging in the valley below—all part of your property. Resuming your walk up the path to your home, imagine a log cabin built in 1934 (by log cabin builders from Tennessee), expanded over time. Imagine…your rustic home tucked away in the woods, but easily accessible to all the amenities available in North Bethesda/Rockville.
As you enter the pine-floored cabin you will find a large common space to your left, a kitchen separated from the dining room by a long butcher block counter, and to your right a huge freestanding stone fireplace, built with stones hand-carried from the stream below, in the middle of the living room space. Imagine…walking down the hallway containing 3 bedrooms and into the master bedroom that includes a private office/library suite. You can peer out the large corner windows of the master bedroom to view a hidden garden with a large variety of annuals and perennials, and a bird feeder populated by red-bellied woodpeckers, cardinals, elegant nut hatches, sparrows, red-winged blackbirds, doves, and purple finches. And at night, imagine…being serenaded by a pair of great-horned owls, calling to each other with their complex hoots.
Imagine…living in the lovely cabin nestled in 6-acres of woods and streams that, although living in seemingly splendid isolation, having access within a 2-3-minute walk to an extraordinary school (Green Acres), and within less than 5-10 minutes of driving to 3 shopping centers (Pike and Rose, Montgomery Mall, White Flint), movies, and restaurants. The log cabin could be integrated into a new home as a guest cottage or studio…or replaced.
