Luxury homes in Bethesda offer homebuyers a slew of options for upscale living. Bethesda, tucked inside the Beltway in southern Montgomery County and one of the most well educated communities in the country, has long been ripe with multimillion-dollar luxury homes.
Bethesda is rich in history and luxury homes listed there include a wealth of upscale properties such as a $7.25 million home, 9,322-square-foot home on Arrow Head Road or a $3.4 million, 6 BR luxury home, also on Bethesda’s Arrow Head Road. And the market houses a wide array of luxury condos in Bethesda as well, especially downtown. Several condos in Lionsgate on Woodmont Avenue, built in 2008, are listed for just over $1 million and those in Adagio on Wisconsin Avenue start at about $716,000.
But among luxury homes in Bethesda, there’s likely none that can top the $6.5 million, 11 BR home on Natelli Woods Lane in the prestigious Avenel community, supposedly the largest home in Montgomery County. That Bethesda luxury home boasts more than 24,000 square feet on more than two acres. In the golf community of Avenel alone, 30 of the 900 luxury homes there are on the market.
Owners of luxury homes in Bethesda enjoy close proximity to more than 200 restaurants, 20 art galleries and a slew of shopping and nightlife both in the Bethesda community and in the similarly upscale D.C. suburb of Chevy Chase, Md., which is nearby. Property prices of luxury homes in Bethesda have been steadily rising. The average price per square foot in December was $918, up 24% from a year prior, with the average listing price being $1.3 million, according to Trulia.
Luxury homes in Bethesda are near public schools that are ranked among the best in the country as well as several private college preparatory schools like Georgetown Prep and Landon School. For recreation, the community is ripe with country clubs. The Capital Crescent Trail, which runs from Georgetown to Silver Spring, Md., cuts right through Bethesda’s downtown.
So, if you’re searching for luxury homes in the D.C metro area, you’ll find this the Bethesda community that likely meets all your needs and, luckily, the market is ripe with luxury homes in Bethesda.
