Description

**NEWLY PRICED**Presenting one of Bethesda’s Grand Dame colonials, with nearly 100 years of character complemented by modernized infrastructure. Originally finished in 1923, this stately colonial is a classic example of period colonial architecture. With nearly 4,500 square feet on 4 finished levels with two re-lined wood-burning fireplaces, the spaces provided by this attractive floor-plan will delight every member of the household. Traversing the symmetrically landscaped brick walkway through the front entry, you are drawn into the formal living room featuring a wood-burning fireplace to your right, on the left is the formal dining room. Adjacent to the living room is a natural light-drenched sunroom, and the main level is completed with an expansive added-on gourmet kitchen with radiant heated floors that will serve as the heart of this home. There is a pantry, butler’s pantry area, powder room and laundry area just off of the main kitchen. Up the stairs from the main level is the primary bedroom floor, showcasing the owner’s suite with vaulted ceilings and dual walk-in closets. A 5-piece luxury owner’s bath with radiant heated floors complete this space. Three additional bedrooms, plus a handsome bonus room (converted from an earlier sleeping porch) with another wood burning fireplace. On the finished loft level (3rd floor) is another bedroom with lounge area, and a playroom that can be used as another bedroom space. The lower level offers ample room for entertaining, and extensive storage options as well. The rear grounds offer plenty of space for the active, and a raised rear-deck provides a perfect venue for al fresco dining. The parking courts offer space for numerous vehicles for residents and guests, and the public transportation options of downtown Bethesda are just minutes away. As mentioned above, there is a sense of community throughout the neighborhood. Parades on symbolic national holidays, halloween gatherings, cookouts and celebrations are regular occurrences. You will love living here. The neighborhood, Battery Park, is a close-knit community surrounded by nature.Originally developed by a contingent of World War I veterans, whom all served in the same artillery battery (hence the name), the area grew popular with the public at large who were drawn to this magnificent residential neighborhood for all the reasons described above. The first three houses completed in the neighborhood were 5203 Wilson Lane, 5207 Wilson, and the property that has drawn your eyes to this page: 5205 Wilson Lane.

    "There’s a homeless outreach on Cordell ave and Wisconsin ave. You do have homeless walking the area asking for money, some are a bit crazy. The housing is stupid expensive, apartments and houses. The small businesses are dwindling due to big investors/ owners like Greenhill who don’t care about anything but money. That part is very sad. The rest of the neighborhood and the residents are wonderful and friendly. "

    "It’s a very eclectic, diverse neighborhood. Lots of children, and being close to the park is nice for young families. I wouldn’t say it’s a particularly friendly neighborhood. If you’re looking for a neighborhood where people hang out outside, chat on the sidewalks, etc., you’re better off elsewhere. "
