Fox Hill Residences Condominiums-Downsizing Never Seemed So Beautiful

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253



Why Live at the Fox Hill Residences Condominiums in Bethesda MD 20817?

There comes a day when you are just done with shoveling snow or cutting the grass.  My aunt sold her home and moved when the furnace needed to be replaced and she was tired of dealing with home maintenance issues.  Suddenly, retirement means more than not going to an office! It means simplifying your life so you don't have to wait for repairmen and waste your weekends on a Honey Do List!

Where to go though when you live in Bethesda or Northwest Washington.  While Leisure World is a great community, it seems so far away from your life.  How would you get to the Kennnedy Center or your club if you moved to Leisure World? Downsizing shouldn't mean a complete disruption of your life! Fox Hill is clearly the answer for people who are used to a Bethesda lifestyle - lunch at Paul, shopping in Friendship Heights, Shakespeare at the Folger!  

If this sounds like you, then you will be delighted to know that you can downsize, keep your lifestyle, and live in a beautiful condo in a green paradise set on the edge of Bethesda with all the amenities you ever wanted in the best 5 star hotel. The Foxhall Residences is the condo community for you!  These condos offer a wonderful lifestyle if you are downsizing or just treating yourself really really well.  AND THEY ARE PET FRIENDLY!!


Located just off River Road at 8300 Burdette Road and just steps to the Burning Tree Country Club, Congressional, Bethesda Country Club, and Kenwood, the Foxhall Residences offer easy access to Rockville and Bethesda and the rest of the metro area by way of I-270 and the Beltway. The community is so friendly here and the sixteen acres of greenery surrounding the alpine style buildingsso beautiful, why would you want to live anywhere else? 

Fox Hill Residences offer you 240 condominiums with a choice of one, two or three bedroom floor plans with optional dens and balconies.  The three-bedroom floor plans are very large with more than 1,900 square feet.  If you are planning on downsizing, you might want to look at the two different one bedroom floorplans which offer either 841 or 999 square feet of space.

Lots of attention to detail, fireplaces, walk in closets, granite and stainless are the minimum standards that you expect in your new home.  

Bethesda condos with unrivaled services and amenities


Fox Hill residences come with an amazing list of amenitiesm like a full service spa, a pool, a virtual golf range, and wine storage facilities. Dining options at Fox Hill range from casual to chef prepared elegant dinners!  This is actually a better life for many residents than when they lived in single family homes in Bethesda or DC! 

With no need to spend your weekends on yard work, you can choose how you exercise! Enjoy improving your golf game at the outdoor putting green or the driving range simulator, or work out in the instructor-led Zumba class with your friends.  Hit the treadmill for a run or  find out how to get rid of those pesky pounds that you might gain from all the good food here by working out with the charming gym instructors  These are the services and amenities that define luxury condo living in Bethesda.

The Foxhall Residences are very close to the Westfield Montgomery Mall and Cabin John Park with all that is offered there.  Whether you want to shop, go to the movies, eat out, or watch a baseball game at the Shirley Povitch field, ride a miniature train with your grandchildren, or test out your iceskates at the rink, you can find something to do within five minutes of your new home! 


Shopping is easy with Montgomery Mall right outside your door.  The newly renovated Arclight Theater offers an upscale movie experience with wine and food, reserved stadium style seating, and all the best first run movies.  Whether it is Bobby's Burger Palace or Jamaican Mi Crazy, there are lots of dining options at Montgomery Mall. Shopping options range from White House, Black Market to Coach and Nordstrom's, the Apple Store and Sears!   Don't forget that Balducci's is just a mile or two away at the Wildwood shopping center on Old Georgetown with all of its great prepared foods and fantastic vegetables, meats and wine selection.  The Wildwood shopping center also has restaurants like Le Pain Quotidien, Gepetto's Pizza, and great shops like South Moon Under.  

Homes at Fox Hill Condominiums

The Fox Hill Residences were built in 2008 to provide an option to buyers looking to downsize their home maintenance responsibilities but not necessarily the size of their homes or their lifestyle.  The condos here are gracious and upscale.  Fireplaces, balconies and high end kitchens are the norm.  

Health Care at Fox Hill

It is easy to overlook the extras at Fox Hill that come from its management affiliation with Sun Rise, one of the nation's largest providers of retirement living.  Fox Hill also offers assisted living  and memory care facilities whenever that becomes necessary.
