Have you ever watched a renovation show and loved the home so much you wished you could move right in?  Here is your chance!

This home in North Bethesda, Maryland, which just hit the market this week, will be featured in a new TV show on DIY Network called Best House on the Block. The show features Lauren and David Liess, a husband and wife design and renovation team, who update and transform cookie-cutter homes around the Washington, D.C. area.

The typical 50s rambler in the Randolph Hills neighborhood was completely overhauled for the show. Liess and her team created an open floorplan, doubled the size of the kitchen and reworked a staircase to a create an open and bright space. A wall of windows was added in the kitchen to add sight lines into the backyard, which backs up to a wooded park. The custom wood island and built in bookshelves add character and functionality. The exterior also got a facelift with new paint and landscaping that make the home stand out from the identical brick homes in the neighborhood.

You can see some of the highlights from the renovation in this trailer.

Homeowners David and Kelly said participating in the show required them to turn over complete trust in Lauren and her team. “We gave them an idea of our taste and aesthetic, but they made all of the decisions after that,” said David. “We were completely surprised and delighted with how it turned out. They completely nailed it.”

Since the renovation last year, the family has been loving the updates and entertaining friends in the space. They are moving to Cincinnati to be closer to family. Leaving the home is bittersweet, but they are happy a new owner will have a chance to enjoy the home and its designer updates.
