Designed by architect Robert Gurney, FAIA., The Kessler Residence is celebrated for its universal accessibility, a concept so good that it begs the question “shouldn’t we design more homes like this?” It is an AIA National award-winning home, in addition to six more prestigious awards for exceptional architecture and design from local AIA chapters, the Washingtonian, and Custom Home Magazine. A brilliant purpose perfectly executed. The home rests comfortably within its coveted Chevy Chase community, with a striking façade that impresses while politely complimenting the architectural elements of the neighborhood. Beneath the glass entry of steel-framed windows and doors is a decadent interior of quarter sawn beech millwork, and glowing Brazilian cherry hardwood floors. The foyer offers an immediate preview of the stunning landscape and swimming pool in the backyard. The kitchen, living, and dining spaces are generous and open, enhanced with clever storage and convertible home office niches. Upstairs via the beautiful staircase, or the elevator allowing accessibility to all four levels, are the primary suite and two more guest rooms. The upper-most level includes the fourth bedroom or a home office to admire! The exposures from the fourth level are beautiful too, with open skies facing southwest over the community. The backyard is a verdant gem, with a low-maintenance landscape design that incorporates amenities like lounge seating, and an outdoor shower that’s best enjoyed after a swim in the stunning 75ft lap pool. A home like no other in the DC region offered for sale for the first time since its completion, it is an incredible opportunity.
