$1,850,000 5109 Allan Rd, Bethesda, MD 20816
Wow in Westgate! This handsome brick colonial is ideally sited on one of the deepest lots in the neighborhood. From the moment you arrive, 5109 Allan Road exudes an English country feel while maintaining all of the advantages of urban living. With timeless curb appeal, this five bedroom, four full-bath, two half-bath home is light-filled from every oversized window. Spread over 3,900 s.f., the high ceilings and secret \?clubhouse\? charms; while the marble-floored family room, finished attic level, and fantastic oversized lot wows.

Perfect for everyday living to large scale entertaining, this bright five-bedroom Colonial features a formal foyer, deep living room with fireplace and built-in bookshelves, and dining room with access to the gardens. The eat-in kitchen, with breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances, allows access to the mudroom and family room. The sunlight-drenched family room features soaring ceilings, marble inlaid floor, fireplace, and a wall of windows overlooking the backyard. The main floor also includes a bedroom and half-bath, giving the owner options to configure as den, office, or guest room.

The second and attic levels feature the expanded homeowner's suite with walk-in closet, dual vanity bath, tub, shower and water closet. Three more bedrooms, two full, and one half-bath spread over the upper levels, including a delightful \?clubhouse\? just off the third floor stair. The finished lower level features a rec room with upgraded flooring, full bath, laundry area with sink, and additional storage.

Nestled in the heart of the \?Westbrook Neighborhood,\? the nearly 11,000 s.f. tiered lot offers incredible potential for home expansion, construction of sport court, playset, or installation of pool. Why not a pool house with extra bonus room\? Backing to an alley for the utmost privacy, the possibilities are unique and endless.

Named one of Bethesda Magazine\?s \?Great Neighborhoods,\? this well-established community continues to delight residents decade after decade with its Fourth of July and Halloween parades, block parties and other community events. A short stroll to the neighborhood gem Millie's and the home-town butcher at Wagshal's and sidewalk dining at Pizzeria Paradiso and Compass Coffee, Crate & Barrel, and the Spring Valley Shopping Center. Just over one mile to the Friendship Heights Metro and all its conveniences, dining, shopping, Amazon Grocery, medical offices, Whole Foods, and more. Westbrook Elementary, Westland Middle School, and B-CC high school serve the neighborhood. In bounds for the Little Falls Swimming Club. Welcome home! Overlapping showings so be kind out there. :)
