Fancy owning a condo with direct access from your own private elevator? Sales are anticipated to begin this fall on The Lauren, a 40-unit upscale condo at 4901 Hampden Lane in downtown Bethesda.

The floor plans range in size from 1,444 to more than 6,000 square feet, with 29 units designated as “estate quality” condos that average more than 2,500 square feet of living space. These premier units will all have nine- and 10-foot-high ceilings, custom-designed cabinets, fireplaces, home automation systems and high-end finishes. Private elevators are available in 70 percent of The Lauren’s residences and many of the homes will have a private terrace. Prices are anticipated to range from $1.5 million to $5 million.

Building amenities will include a rooftop terrace for entertaining and an indoor entertaining space, each complete with private wine storage for residents and fully equipped catering kitchens. Concierge services will be provided for residents and their guests. Five guest suites that can be used for entertaining will also be sold to residents who want to purchase additional space at The Lauren.
