Go Modern: Incomparable Split-Level Rambler in Bethesda

I want to be fair and equitable to the Bethesdan GoDCers and make sure they get some of the history spotlight. We posted an ad for real estate in Vienna the other day and here is one for a home in Bethesda around the same time. Actually, it was in the same paper on the same day. A lot of these are being knocked down for McMansions today, but the vast majority of the area still consists of homes like this.
