1965 ‘Overlook’ in Carderock Springs
Designed as a bi-level plan for uphill lots, the Overlook, with redwood and brick siding, is one of the most popular Carderock Springs models. The design features a raised living room at tree top level with cathedral ceilings, wood paneled-end wall with fireplace and walls of glass. Large sliding glass doors bring light to the kitchen and dining area, with access to the front balcony and back patio. The entry level includes a family room, fourth bedroom and full bathroom—as well as laundry and utility/storage room. The house totals an estimated 2,882 square feet.
The open-tread staircase with wood-paneled walls and vintage globe light retains the mid-century vibe as you head to the top level. The Overlook received McCall’s Magazine Award for the Middle Atlantic area in 1963 and was published in the October 1963 issue of McCall’s and in House & Home in February 1963.
The top level with hardwood floors includes three bedrooms and two full bathrooms (with radiant floor heat), including the enlarged primary suite. The primary bathroom features double sinks, Jacuzzi soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. The bedroom has a large custom picture window with built-in daybed and custom walk-in closet. The oversized one-car garage has a Tesla wall charger and side storage area.
