Gracefully nestled on an expansive lot in the highly coveted Westgate neighborhood, this enchanting Cape Cod-style home exudes timeless elegance. Built by renowned developer Cooper Lightbown, its classic architecture shines within the flourishing gardens and a symphony of blooms gracing the landscape throughout the seasons.

The cheery facade welcomes guests with an airy demeanor. With a charming stone walkway and Chippendale-style white fence accents, the stone-walled vestibule entry hints to the grace within - light-filled rooms, hardwood floors, built-ins, and wood-burning fireplace.

From the formal entry, the generously proportioned living room with fireplace allows for grand entertaining or comfortable daily living. The floorplan is deceptively clever with ideal circulation to formal dining, eat-in kitchen with built-in breakfast bar, and screened-in porch creating a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living. The sun-drenched office on the main floor boasts an exposed brick wall with delightful patina, along with powder room and additional entry making it a versatile space, ideal for a home office, playroom, or cozy den.

Up the atrium-like staircase, the second level boasts three bedrooms and two full baths. Natural light floods the primary bedroom from dual exposures, creating a tranquil retreat with leafy treetop views. It includes a spacious walk-in closet and convenient access to an updated full bathroom, ensuring ease and comfort. The two additional bedrooms offer ample space and a shared buddy bath. The lower level includes the versatile finished family room, bonus room, full bath, storage spaces, and laundry utilities.

The corner lot is lush and verdant, a haven for gardening enthusiasts, children, pets, or anyone seeking outdoor enjoyment. Expansive stone patios invite guests to linger; with custom retaining walls, koi pond, a multitude of flowering plants and trees and oversized lawn area is magic for all four seasons.

Step inside this heartwarming home, and you'll undoubtedly fall in love not only with the property but also with the welcoming neighborhood it calls home.

Named one of Bethesda Magazine's "Great Neighborhoods," Westgate continues to delight residents decade after decade with tidy brick homes and manicured yards winding along a classic street-scape. Community Fourth of July and Halloween parades, block parties and other community events unite the residents. A short stroll to the neighborhood gem Millie's, Wagshal's Market, and sidewalk dining at Pizzeria Paradiso and Compass Coffee. Crate & Barrel, CVS, and local services round out Spring Valley Shopping Center. Just about a mile to Friendship Heights Metro and all its conveniences, dining, shopping, Amazon Grocery, medical offices, Whole Foods, and more. Supreme convenience to downtown DC, Bethesda, and Northern Virginia. Westbrook Elementary, Westland Middle, and B-CC High serve the neighborhood. In-bounds for the Little Falls Swimming Club.
