Modern living just got a bit more modern. This 10,000-square foot cubist home in Bethesda features an infinity pool, three-story elevator, fire pit and heated floors made of precious stone.

The house is made of two rectangular spaces: a formal section, which includes the living and dining rooms, and an informal rectangle that houses the kitchen, breakfast area and bedrooms. A glass bridge over a koi fish pond connects the two parts.

“It’s breathtaking,” Jayne Ehrens of Sotheby’s said of the home. “There’s something beautiful to look at from every window.”

The four-bedroom house, designed by District-based architect Robert Gurney, was completed in 2011 and is on the market for $6.9 million.
