Calling Downtown Bethesda Home

Downtown Bethesda is the ultimate live, play, work destination with something for everyone. The housing stock is overwhelmingly condominium and townhomes with larger, more luxurious buildings being delivered over the last 5-10 years with an eye toward satisfying the demand from downsizing baby boomers exiting the outer suburbs as well as young and established professionals seeking higher end accommodations and urban amenities.

 

History

Downtown Bethesda is a long way from its pre-colonial, tobacco farming roots. Modern Bethesda is one of the largest urban centers in the region and has certainly stepped out of the District's shadow thanks to its first class dining, retail, office space and the emergence of high end condominiums and townhomes that has lured downsizers, empty nesters as well as young and established professionals seeking an urban lifestyle.

 

Architecture

There are already 5,000 apartment and condominium units in Downtown Bethesda with over 20 approved developments in the pipeline that will take that figure to over 8,000 units in the coming years. In addition to condo units, there are several popular higher end townhouse communities located in the heart of Bethesda, including The Villages of Bethesda and The City Homes of Edgemoor. For those seeking a more accessible pricepoint, the townhomes in Kenwood Forest just outside the downtown area are an excellent and ever popular option.
