Affordable and in a great location at 8900 to 8934 Battery Lane Bethesda Md 20814! Are you looking for an affordable Bethesda Md condo that lets you decide if you are going to walk, drive, or bike today? Located just off Old Georgetown Road near the Bethesda Rescue these stylish condominiums are just a short walk to the Bethesda Metro and the NIH/Bethesda Naval Metro (Red Line).


City Commons of Bethesda was built in 1985.  It is a small community of 35 one and two story piggy back townhouse style condos.   The stucco exteriors are unique in Bethesda, giving the community a Mediterranean or southwestern feel.  The units range from a 600 square foot one bedroom condo (on one level) to a 1334 square foot 2 bedroom 2 and a half bath condo on two levels. 

The units have either a small patio outside the front door if they are lower level units or a balcony if they are upper level units.  There is ample assigned parking, although it is uncovered, in front of the units. The community is very pet friendly, with no size restriction.  Since you walk right out of your unit to the great outdoors, as you would in a single family house, your pet will find it very agreeable too. No waiting for the elevator to arrive when your dog really wants/needs to get outside!  Extra amenities include fireplaces and washers and dryers in each unit.


City Commons is such a small community that you won’t find a fitness center or a community pool here – but honestly, with all of Bethesda just five blocks away, who needs it?  Condo fees at City Commons fall in the mid range of condo fees in Bethesda.  For example, the condo fee for a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath unit with 1050 square feet is $510 in 2015. The condo fee covers snow removal, parking, exterior maintenance, master insurance, and lawn care.  Utilities, including electricity, water and sewer, are separately metered.  


City Commons of Bethesda is different from other condos in Bethesda on Battery Lane.  It is the only one on the northern side of Bethesda that is not a high rise.  Instead, it truly is townhouse living on a smaller scale. As such, it offers access to the outdoors on your balcony or patio and just by being able to walk out your front door and into the sunshine.  No elevators or long corridors here! But it still is so close to everything that is Bethesda.  See all the available Condos For Sale at City Commons of Bethesda Condos

Located on the northern side of downtown Bethesda, great restaurants like Cesco Osteria and simple ones like Chipotle are just a few blocks away. The nearest grocery stores are the Safeway at Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda and the Giant on Arlington Road.  There also is a Harris Teeter being built on Wisconsin Avenue near NIH.



City Commons of Bethesda Condominiums are located in the Bethesda--Chevy Chase Cluster of the Montgomery County public schools. Students that live in the City Commons of Bethesda condos will attend Bethesda Elementary, Westland Middle School, and Bethesda--Chevy Chase High School. Nearby private schools include Alef Bet Montessori, Bethesda Community School, Landon School for Boys, Stone Ridge, and the lower school of Sidwell Friends.  



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 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.

I like the part about no waiting for your dog to go outside. No sirree, there will be no dog prancing on one foot with a paw covering his private area in the City Commons of Bethesda condos. We just open the door and there we are. Woof.
