1977 ccontemporary home designed by Henry Doyle Norris

Slow down and immerse yourself in nature — a vacation every time you come home. Sited on 5 stunning acres, this sprawling 1977 contemporary home was designed by noted modernist Henry Doyle Norris.

The home totals more than 5,100 square feet with nearly 3,800 of finished square footage over two levels. It is located in the Moyaone Reserve, a community in Accokeek with a long tradition of preserving the natural environment. The sellers have made extensive updates and added custom design features such as closets with built-in storage, new modern-style baseboards and light fixtures, and stained-glass windows flanking the carved-wood front door.

The main entrance opens into a wood-ceilinged foyer, and beyond, a sunken living room with large stone walk-around fireplace, soaring wood cathedral ceiling, clerestory windows, hardwood floors, and wall of glass overlooking the backyard and deck. The open kitchen/dining area features original cabinets, leathered granite countertops, Fireclay Tile backsplash, extra-deep workstation sink, reverse osmosis water filter, induction stove, Bosch dishwasher, and column refrigerator.

Just off the kitchen, leading to the two-car garage, is a mud room / laundry / pantry with washer, dryer, sink, and column freezer. Stairs down to the lower level separate the public spaces on the north end of the home with the expansive bedroom wing on the south end, where you will find four light-filled bedrooms and three full baths.

The upscale modernist hall bathroom underwent a full gut renovation with slate floor, honed granite countertop, walnut vanity, and Kohler fixtures. Heritage Tile wraps the walls of the “wet zone.”

Bedroom 1 features built-in closet storage. Bedroom 2 is spacious, with a walk-in closet and distinctive circular window. Bedroom 3 has an ensuite bathroom and large walk-in closet. At the end of the bedroom wing is the massive primary suite with bathroom and thoughtfully-designed, walk-in closet with wood ceiling that mirrors the living room. The 415-square foot bedroom has 10-foot ceilings. The suite includes a bonus room, currently set up as a nursery, that would work as a library, media room, or second closet — and a glass-walled, light-filled office / artist’s studio / sitting room.

On the lower level is a cozy, carpeted family room with full brick wall fireplace with wood-burning insert and outdoor access via sliding door. On the other side of the lower level’s finished area is a large, bright room perfect for use as a playroom or craft area. The adjacent, large unfinished storage space receives plenty of light through glass-block windows and could be used as a gym or workshop. Currently, the space is set up with a mini rink for ball hockey. Other storage space includes a conditioned crawlspace and a backyard shed built into the landscape.

The peaceful, secluded lot has a winding ½-mile trail to enjoy massive 100-year-old tulip poplar trees and other flora and fauna. The sellers have planted or grafted dozens of young fruit trees and shrubs, notably named pawpaw varieties, fig, elder, and goumi trees, and nestled vintage playground equipment in the woods. The lot is located on a private gravel road that dead ends at the national park.

The Moyaone Reserve is a truly unique 1,400-acre wooded residential community and National Register of Historic Places-designated historic district situated along the Potomac River contiguous to Piscataway National Park. Nearly all lots in the community are five acres or more and are protected by deeded federal scenic easements. The community is home to the National Colonial Farm and Hard Bargain Farm, an environmental education center. It is located approximately 30 minutes to Washington DC’s National Mall and 20 minutes to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Canoe and kayak launch sites and the Fort Washington Marina are only minutes away. Annual neighborhood association fee of $820 covers road maintenance, pool membership, and access to the
