Westlake Terrace is a lovely collection of townhomes next to a small lake. The community even has a small gazebo that overlooks the lake! The townhomes have 3 or 4 levels and many have been updated. The community offers a pool and tennis courts so that you can always have an active lifestyle!

Why Choose Westlake Terrace

Not everyone wants to live in a high rise condo like Westlake Towers, or even a low rise condo like Spring Lake!  Instead, some people want to live in a townhouse with a front door and a back yard so you can have a grill and a garden.   If you have looked at Bethesda Court and concluded you wanted more space, perhaps Westlake Terrace is for you!  If you want a friendly community nestled next to a small lake but close to Montgomery Mall and an easy ride to downtown Bethesda, you should consider Westlake Terrace!  The homes are spacious with three or four levels and the community offers a pool and tennis courts, plus access to the lake!

Located close to the Beltway and I-270, this is the place to be for today’s commuter.  You are just two minutes from the entrance to the Beltway and 270 and from there you can go north to Frederick, south to Virginia, Dulles and Leesburg, and east to Baltimore, College Park and Prince Georges County.  Getting to Walter Reed Medical Center is a breeze and doesn’t even require getting on the highway! This is really a commuter’s dream.

You can find townhouses for sale or rent at Westlake Terrace (if there are any available today) as well as all the other condos available in the 20817 zip code on my website, thelisehowegroup.com. Westlake Terrace is the place to be for access to transportation and shopping!

What Is Near Westlake Terrace?

Westlake Terrace is very close to Montgomery Mall (or Westfield Mall as it is now called.)  There are lots of shops and stores there like Nordstrom’s, Macy’s, Gap, Apple, Lego, and lots more.  The food options include Cheesecake Factory, Nordstrom Cafe and Frank Pepe, among others.

If you are still hungry, look no further than the restaurants at the Wildwood Shopping Center, like Oakville Grille, Le Pain Quotidienne, and Chop’t – and don’t forget the new Pike and Rose, just two miles away.  This blog would be too long if I included all the new shops and restaurants going in there.

You can’t always eat out though and occasionally you need a grocery store!  The Giant at Democracy and Old Georgetown is there for staples (although it could certainly be updated!) and Balducci’s is across the street for all the gourmet items and wine you could ever want.

Enough about food! Westlake Terrace is close to Cabin John Regional Park, one of Montgomery County’s biggest and best combinations of nature, sports and recreation. The park encompasses athletic fields, including the beautiful Shirley Povich Field; a full-service ice-skating rink; indoor and outdoor tennis courts; and many picnic areas, trails and camp sites. Kids of all ages can enjoy summer ball games and the miniature train that runs through the park. Many of the facilities are wheelchair accessible. From nature programs and hiking to playgrounds, sports and baseball – Cabin John has something for everyone

Do You Want to Know the Value of Your Condo?

There are a number of sites on the internet that will give you ‘estimates’ for what your home will sell for. These sites use public records and usually some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. These sites also publicly state their ‘error rates’. That means they aren’t correct, they are simply an estimate based on incomplete date. We are happy to do a free comparative market analysis of your home or condo in Bethesda (or anywhere else in the DC metro area) and let you know what could expect to get in today’s market if you are considering selling. Our valuation is based on up to the day data for homes that have recently sold in the area. Our valuation is not based on a formula that relies on public records which can take months to update.
