Why Live At Sumner Village

Sumner Village is an architecturally distinctive condominium community, developed on a 28-acre tract of wooded land.  It is located just off Sangamore Road in Bethesda, between MacArthur Boulevard and Massachusetts Avenue. The wooded areas and surrounding parkland protect Sumner Village from traffic noise and provide a buffer from surrounding neighborhoods

There are 12 apartment styles ranging from 1360 to 2185 square feet.  The potential resident can select from several 2 or 3-bedroom designs, with 2 or 2 ½ baths. Features in many apartments include large foyers, 27-foot living rooms, wood burning fireplaces, walk-in closets, laundry rooms, and spacious balconies or terraces.

The Sumner Village website says that the residents of Sumner Village have always made up a diverse community.  It includes residents from government, non-profit, and business organizations. Among its residents, for example have been members of Congress, other government personnel and public servants, architects, lawyers, doctors, scientists, journalists, teachers, and embassy personnel.  Many residents have moved from homes in nearby communities.
