Wissioming Residence

February 10th, 2011




This house located in Glen Echo, Maryland and sits among the trees overlooking the Potomac River. The stunning palette of the wood siding and the stainless steel fit perfectly with the surrounding trees. As you step out onto the deck you’re welcomed by a large swimming pool that is suspended twenty feet off the ground and protruding over the steep bank. Isn’t this a place you’d want to live?

    There’s a house in Renton very similar to this. It goes for about 3 million quite worth it if you ask me. I love those big windows and the unpainted wood … beautiful work.

    I love that flat fireplace coals-like area between the deck and the pool.

    Anything with concrete, wood paneling and lots of glass in a forest is brilliant. Why do I live in a city, again?

    I just saw that they where copyrighted, when leaving the hand curser a long time on the photo. My apologies;-)
    But I do believe that it will be for your readers who are passionate of beauty and photography that Maxwell MacKenzie’s name should appear in a more relevant way. Thank you!

    If they do find garbage though, they will leave a tag and ask you to sort out your garbage that they will then collect the next
    week. The great thing about these bean bags is the fact that they can help you continue recycling this material due to the fact that in time
    the beans get compressed and you need to add new ones.

    In recent times, e-waste recycling is the growing issue.
