Robert Jenets - Washingtonian's Best


5900 Gloster Road

This handsome colonial home rests prominently on a lush corner lot, a short walk to the recently refurbished Wood Acres Park. The most significant updated feature in the home is the addition of a spacious kitchen with a large breakfast bar, open to the family room. There is also a very pleasant sunroom, which has a southern exposure for great light all day long. Both the kitchen and the sunroom have access to a wonderful private patio and back garden. In addition to the three bedrooms and two baths upstairs, the first floor has been customized to include a guest bedroom and a full bath. With its two expansions and excellent overall condition, this bright, cheerful home is a truly special opportunity! Enjoy your visit!

Wood Acres is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Bethesda, known for its attractive brick colonials shaded by towering trees. Wood Acres has a caring, friendly atmosphere, a terrific location convenient to important destinations, and a spirit of community that makes people proud to live here. The neighborhood elementary school was beautifully rebuilt in 2002. You may have even heard about the fabulous Halloween festivities or the old-fashioned Fourth of July parade and picnic that are famous in this part of Bethesda. You will love living here - we all do!
