Do you want to move to a condo in Bethesda? Find homes for sale or rent at West Lake Park Condos  near the Westfield Montgomery Mall.  Since  West Lake Park is a small community near Montgomery Mall, I-270 and the Beltway there may not be any homes for sale at the moment – but check back again if this is where you want to live or give the Lise Howe Group a call and lets talk about your wants, needs, and dreams.

Why Choose West Lake Park Condos?

Do you want a friendly community near the green space of Cabin John Park with a beautiful lake in your back yard, and yet just a short walk to all that the Westfield Montgomery Mall has to offer and an easy ride to downtown Bethesda and the rest of the DC metro area?  If you want a sense of community you will love West Lake Park, which is only 81 units. It seems particularly friendly here and you certainly will get to know your neighbors and make new friends.

Condo fees include common area maintenance, exterior building maintenance, lawn maintenance, management, master insurance policy, reserve funds, snow removal and trash removal.  There is a pool and tennis court and lots of parking.


 Here is a sample two bedroom two bath floorplan for West Lake Park.  The two bedroom two bath condos are very spacious with nearly 1250 square feet of living space.  The one bedroom one bath condos are 900 square feet.  Clearly these are spacious homes with large windows overlooking green space!

What is Near West Lake Park Condos

West Lake Park Condos  is just a few blocks from Montgomery Mall (or Westfield Mall as it is now called.)  This Mall has undergone a recent transformation with the addition of a new Arclight theater and food court making it one of the nicest places to see movies in the DC area.  Other dining opportunities include a new Cheesecake Factory, Nordstrom Cafe and Naples Ristorante which are not in the food court. 

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! West Lake Park is just at the edge of 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



Not every family commutes in the same direction. Partners may work in Virginia and upper Montgomery County. Some family members may head off to College Park for classes while others are driving to Leesburg or flying out of Dulles.  Being tucked into a quiet subdivision twenty minutes from the nearest commuting road just doesn't cut it!

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.

That fee includes exterior maintenance, access to the lake, storage bins, pool, tennis, master insurance and grounds maintenance.

Some days you may feel like the market is enough to make your head spin!  Is the market up or is the market down? Is it a buyer market or a seller market? 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 would love to do a free comparative market analysis of your home or condo in Bethesda (or anywhere else in the market 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. Please visit my website in order to get your free property evaluation for your Bethesda home or condo.

Morning Lise.

A follow up to the question I had a day or so ago.  How many condos are on the market in your area? Ours had dropped to 32 for a four county area
