OFFERS, IF ANY, DUE MONDAY APRIL 24 at 1:00 p.m. Beautifully sited on an oversized lot in Bethesda's desirable Westgate neighborhood, this charming three bedroom, three-and-one-half bath Cape Cod style home turns heads with its classic design and flowering gardens resplendent with a multitude of plantings that bloom all through the year. The house has been meticulously maintained with a vestibule added in 2016 and a second story addition, to create two bedroom suites and a third bathroom, in 2019.
The gambrel-style welcomes all with a cheery facade and stone walkway. The home features a private driveway with a one-car garage, covered vestibule entry, and professionally landscaped yard. With thoughtful details throughout, including hardwood floors, ample built-ins, and a functioning wood fireplace, this sun-filled home offers excellent spaces for both entertaining and everyday living.
Approached by a stone walkway surrounded by landscaping, mature plantings and shrubs, the covered entry is functional and provides a warm welcome. A center-hall foyer leads to both the formal dining room and to the graciously-sized living room with a fireplace. The main floor's sun drenched office is anchored by an exposed brick wall with the perfect patina. Recently updated powder room and floor to ceiling shelving makes this the perfect home office, playroom, or den.
The formal dining room allows for a multitude of options, whether hosting a party or just enjoying coffee and reading the paper. The updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, designer countertops and backsplash, and a side entrance for easy access to the gardens and the fully paved patio.
The second level design brilliantly allows for three spacious bedrooms and two full baths. Sunlight streams into the primary bedroom from exposure on two walls. With its tree top view, large walk-in closet, and easy access to an updated full bath, life is a breeze. The two other bedrooms have been enlarged to provide an oversized layout with private sitting room and an alcove bedroom each and are joined by a new jack-and-jill full marble bath.
The lower level features a finished basement allowing for guest quarters with a separate entrance, full bath, storage, utility, and kitchenette. Most recently this housed a live-in nanny. Alternatively, add an additional bedroom by adding a window egress as many have done in the neighborhood. Covered access through an additional room, which may be used as a mud room or small gym, to the garage allows for more convenience.
The lush and verdant yard is perfect for gardening, kids, pets, or any owner's need. It features a generous paved outdoor area with space heaters and an awning facilitating al fresco dining or outdoor entertaining most times of the year. Beyond the patio lies a lush terraced garden, making the back yard very private. Life doesn't get more convenient or inviting.
Step inside and explore this truly heartwarming home, and get ready to fall in love with the property and the neighborhood.
