Set around a small courtyard, the greenspace is a peaceful respite from all the activity of the Woodmont Triangle. It is hard to believe you are so close to two metros and all those restaurants. Walk outside with your dog or enjoy a good book and a cup of coffee on your patio or deck! Listen to the birds. Welcome home.
Camelot Mews has a HUGE field to play in and trails to explore. This community is minutes to restaurants, shops, NIH, Walter Reed (right next door), two metro stations or the Marriott headquarters. There is a free shuttle running every day on Battery lane to the Bethesda Metro.
Adding to the sense of separation from all the noise and bustle of downtown Bethesda is a small park and public tennis courts on Battery Lane! There is so much to walk to like the Harris Teeter at the end of the street, Guapo’s on Wisconsin Avenue, and the Blue House at the Woodmont Triangle Park. Grab a burger at BGR or a salad at Jetties and sit outside in the warm weather and watch everyone stroll by!
The HOA fee here is very low so you will not find an exercise room or pool, but all those things are very close to you in downtown Bethesda if you want them.
Bethesda is getting to be a big little city. The intersection of Bethesda and Woodmont Avenues has been transformed in the last few years from a quiet little area with a surface parking lot or two and a Barnes and Noble into a community with luxury high rise condos, a park, trendy stores and upscale restaurants. Even the Barnes and Noble has morphed into a trendy clothing store with a restaurant and plant store in the same space. Bethesda has gone high end! It is a great place to shop and dine, but for many people it is overwhelming as a place to live. Some residents long for the “good old days” when Bethesda was a little quieter. If you feel that way, you will fall in love with Camelot Mews!
