This week’s featured house on Arrowood Road in Bethesda is a perfect place to relax and unwind without worrying about nosy neighbors prying into your home life. The six-bedroom stone-and-stucco manor is set back from the street and screened by mature trees.

“You can’t see any other houses from the pool or any of the rooms in the house,” said listing agent Lois Robins of Long and Foster. “You have this feeling of privacy.”

Set on a little bit more than an acre, the 9,200-square-foot home is well suited for indoor and outdoor entertaining. The gourmet kitchen comes with two refrigerators, a double-oven and a butler’s pantry. The 18-by-42-foot pool is surrounded by a flagstone patio, terraces and stonewalls.

“It’s understatedly elegant with well-proportioned rooms and an excellent floor plan for family living and superb entertaining,” Robins said. “It’s a gorgeous blend of house and land. They meld together.”

The dining room features a floor-to-ceiling window and one of the three fireplaces in the home. The marble foyer has a curved stairway that leads to the second floor. The master suite has two separate sitting areas.

The house is on the market for $3.35 million.
