If you would rather get in a run or a long bike ride, the Capital Crescent Trail is just a block away.  Since this is Bethesda, you know that all the restaurants and movie theaters and shops of downtown Bethesda are just outside the door! There is usually at least one condo for sale at Crescent Plaza.

Chelsea Tower Condo Choices

The Chelsea Tower Condominium is a high rise building just minutes to I270 & I495. Built in 1983 it has 238 units,  from one bedroom one bath condos with 841 square feet to 882 square feet. The two bedroom two bath condos are approximately 1100 square feet in size, and then there are three bedroom two bath condos that are approximately 1300 square feet in size. Unlike the upscale buildings in downtown Bethesda, Chelsea Towers represents a real value in terms of price per square foot. An 800 square foot 1 bedr 1 bath condo will sell for less than $200,000 but with a condo fee around $450 a month.  It is possible to buy a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in the lower 200,000s, but the condo fee will be in the $500s.  A large three bedroom two bath condo might run  into the mid $300s with a condo fee around $650.  The condo fees - which are still less than downtown Bethesda fees- have kept the price of the condos lower than one might expect for the square footage. Check out all the properties currently available.


These are only a few of the choices you have in moving to Bethesda and the Walter Reed Medical Center. As an Army brat, I welcome you to the Washington DC metro area and would like to do whatever I can do help you and your family find a great home here.  I moved at least once a year with my family until I was in middle school, so I understand how hard a move can be on you and your family, and how important it is to find a good school, a great neighborhood, the amenities that make a house a home - all in record time at a great price! Let me help - it would be my privilege.  Please give the Lise Howe Group a call at 240-401-5577 or email us at
