Contemporary homes come in all shapes and sizes, and the latest to cross our desk is this five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath beauty located in Bethesda, Maryland. The original home was constructed in 1969 before it was renovated by Washington, D.C.-based architect David Jameson in 2013.

The renovation added 1,850 square feet to the home—bringing the total to 4,724 square feet—and Jameson used a frame of weathering steel to act as a “portal to the landscape.” Jameson is known for focusing his designs on a show stopping centerpiece, and in this case it’s a glass cube on the home’s second level that is surrounded by an outdoor patio with Potomac River views.

The airy, open concept living spaces on the main floor have soaring ceilings and were designed, according to Jameson, to be “veiled in stucco, acid etched, and transparent glass.” A hand-forged floating staircase leads to the second level, while the kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances and a spacious island. Interested? 6415 Dahlongea Road is on the market now for $3,495,000.
