This new townhome community in Bethesda, Md., delivers a contemporary take on traditional brownstone design, creating an urban aesthetic in a highly suburban market. These contemporary townhomes comprise large translucent spans of glass, wood-textured materials, metal panels and a stone base. The elevations emphasizing a more urban brownstone design are highlighted by dark contrasting bays, casement windows and precast brick.

These three-story townhomes offer an optional fourth-floor penthouse that opens onto an open roof terrace bringing vitality and visual connections to the neighborhood. The townhomes provide multigenerational living options by delivering a ground-floor bedroom with options to expand into a multigen suite.

The first-floor grand foyer paves the way to a dedicated mudroom, flowing to a flex space that can be used as a hobby or recreation room with an optional wet bar. The second level of the home features an open layout with mid-kitchen, dining area, great room and large covered outdoor terrace with an optional outdoor fireplace and kitchen, ideal for entertaining. The in-home elevator establishes ease of movement between the floors offering fluidity for multigenerational living.

From the Judges
These homes feature nice movement to keep the exteriors interesting instead of boxy. The segregation of each unit makes it feel individual. The front courtyard walls also help soften the view from the street. The homes feature great details as well, such as the interior stairs and the rooftop paneling.
