Modern Colonial in Chevy Chase – $1.35 Million

4614 Nottingham Drive - Home front

Obviously, this site is not a huge fan of colonials. But I had to show you this one just listed for $1.35 million. From the front, this 1935 colonial in Chevy Chase gives some hints of what is behind the traditional front exterior: the modern grey color, concrete slab walkway, white handrails, glass front door and those modern planters and porch lights. The interior clearly shows how the  Cunningham Quill renovation with 3-story expansion differs from the original 1930s floor plan. The open kitchen and family room spans the back of the house, which now has large expanses of glass. You can see all the pictures here. Definitely a colonial a modernist could love.

The open kitchen and family rooms spans the whole back of the house.

The 1935 colonial still has a traditional front to go along with its modern back.
