On the Market: 5205 St. Albans Way

I guess after staying at home for three months, everyone's sick of their house and a lot of places are now on the market. But my real estate friends tell me that things are moving quickly!
Here is what the listing says:

"Remarkable Palmer & Lamdin Architectural beauty with five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, thoughtfully updated with a two car garage.
Gorgeous hardwood floors, french doors, and fine millwork grace the interior of this traditional home. The spacious and updated Chef's kitchen features a gas cooktop, high end appliances, island and is open to a breakfast area.
Perfect for entertaining dining room with built-in China cabinets and french doors to patio. Cozy family room and a sun filled living room with gas fireplace.
The upper levels include a wonderful master suite and four more bedrooms and updated bathrooms.
A wonderful finished lower level completes this beautiful home!"

This house was built in 1930, and seems to be a bit of the formula that they were using for the houses in Homeland at that time, as there are several similar ones. It doesn't have the flourishes that many others do. 

Update 5/21: The house is back on the market and the listing is here

209 Paddington Road

Every so often when I google Palmer & Lamdin, something from a few years ago pops up, even though I use the "last month" as the time parameter. So, it was interesting to find 209 Paddington Road, which was last on the market in 2016.
Here's the description:

A unique 1928 Palmer-Lamdin jewel on coveted Homeland block. Architecturally significant historic stone residence with French and English design inspiration.
Beautifully maintained. Very flexible living spaces. Two fireplaces.
French doors from both living and dining rooms to extraordinary stone terrace/outdoor living.
Wonderful gardens and landscaping.
Attached garage.
