  197 W Lake Drive Annapolis, MD 21403

Pending (40 Days)


Possibly the largest and most private parcel in Bay Ridge, 197 West Lake Drive presents a rare opportunity to own a spectacular coastal waterfront property in one of Annapolis' most popular neighborhoods. Just minutes from the United States Naval Academy and the boutiques, shopping, and restaurants of historic downtown Annapolis, this inspired, contemporary, light-filled 4BR/3BA home is located down a long, private drive on a peaceful 2-acre lot with 440 feet of sheltered water frontage. Sustainably landscaped, the expansive lawn slopes gently down to the water with sweeping views of Lake Ogleton, while the protected, private pier, buffeted by undisturbed wetlands, provides unlimited access to the Chesapeake Bay. Grandfathered, custom boat house with boat lift and waterside saltwater pool. Separate waterfront outbuilding with loft allows for seamless indoor/outdoor living. Completely remodeled gourmet kitchen connects to great room with wood-burning fireplace, full zinc-topped wet bar with copper sink and ice maker, and soaring, vaulted ceilings ideal for entertaining. Radiant heated flooring in foyer, kitchen, and primary bath. Partially finished basement with walk-out family room and lots of storage. New, oversized, detached 2-car climate-controlled garage with electric vehicle charger. New generator with extended running fuel powers the entire property. This home has only been owned by two families and has been lovingly maintained and updated with many significant improvements. The home is also notable for being featured in the 2008 Ridley Scott film Body of Lies starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe. Home to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Bay Ridge is a very active community with many amenities and opportunities to be social year-round, like the annual Fourth of July Parade. Great walkability and scenic routes for cycling. Ride your golf cart to the marina, clubhouse, and ball courts, including pickleball! There's something for everyone in this historic neighborhood. Rt. 50 and 97 provide direct access to Baltimore, BWI, Ft. Meade/NSA, Washington, DC, and the Eastern shore. Welcome home!
