Bristol Square Condos

Pooks Hill Area

Bethesda MD 20814

 

There are so many condos to choose from in North Bethesda.  The real question is what kind of lifestyle do you want? What amenities matter to you? How big a building or small are you looking for?  Are you comfortable with long hallways, common laundry facilities or big garages?  Do you drive?  Do you prefer to walk to the grocery stores or restaurants? Do you want a pet friendly building? Do you want a building that is pet free?  These things are important to consider as you select a building to focus on. 

 

WHY LIVE AT BRISTOL SQUARE CONDOS?

The Bristol Square Condos are two level units in the Pooks Hill area of Bethesda, close to I-270 and the Beltway.  They are just a short drive to Walter Reed and NIH, and they are peaceful and quiet, set in a green space between downtown Bethesda and newly developed Rockville.  There is a pool and the community is pet friendly.  Parking is reserved and right outside your front door.  Condos have balconies or patios, washers and dryers in the unit, and fireplaces.  They are typically three bedrooms and two and a half baths. Prices range around $400,000 to $450,000 in 2020 depending on whether the unit is a 2 bedroom or a 3 bedroom condo and how updated it is.

Bristol Square Condo Pet Policy

 

Bristol Square welcomes pets of all sizes and kinds.  Can you imagine how much fun you will have walking your pet in the neighborhood surrounding Bristol Square?  Be sure to check out Bone Jour, a great little pet store and groomer located on Del Ray in the Woodmont Triangle!  Take Fido to downtown Bethesda for a stroll.  While you are shopping on Bethesda Row or picking up a new pair of Lululemons on Bethesda Avenue, surely your four legged love needs a new collar or leash!  Another easy walk is to head into the park at Beach Drive.  Once you are in the park, you can walk for miles and miles.

Living at Bristol Square

 

 

You are just a few blocks to the Grosvenor Metro and a short drive to Walter Reed and NIH - or a stop away on the Red Line Metro.   Downtown Bethesda is just another stop beyond on the Metro and all of the new development in Rockville and Pike and Rose are just a stop north!   There are lots of choices for dinner in Bethesda and the Pike and Rose area.  In the  summer, diners spill out onto the sidewalk tables, and in the winter the trees are wrapped in little white lights.  It is an elegant version of small town USA.  If you don't want to eat out, there is a Harris Teeter within a few blocks! 

Movies? We have the Bethesda Row cinema, which is perfect for indie films.  I particularly like Bethesda Row because they serve great wine and mixed drinks in the theater! 

Don't worry about culture - we have that too! You are just a short drive to the Round House Theater and the Children's Imagination Stage! Strathmore is across the road and just a few blocks north with all of its wonderful performances.  This is where the Baltimore Symphony comes to play!

Our biggest big box store is Anthropologie in downtown Bethesa, which replaced the much missed Barnes and Noble.  Otherwise, Bethesda is defined by small stores like Francesca's, Dry Bar, McLaughlin's, Blue Mercury, and Georgetown Cupcake.  We have an Apple Store and a Lululemon, but even our chain stores tend to be small scale.  

SCHOOLS FOR THE BRISTOL SQUARE CONDOS

The Bristol Square Condominiums are located in the Walter Johnson cluster of the Montgomery County public schools. Students that live in the Bristol Square Condos will attend Ashburton Elementary,  North Bethesda Middle School, and Walter Johnson High School.  This community is also close to Georgetown Prep and Stone Ridge.

HOW MUCH IS YOUR BETHESDA CONDO REALLY WORTH?

If you already live at the Bristol Square condos, are you curious now about the value of your condo?  Sadly,  you can't rely on the online valuation sites to produce a value for your home.  Home sales frequently take several months from the closing date to appear in the public records.  The data used by the different valuation sites like Zillow and Trulia are usually months old.  In addition, those sites never see your home or the ones they are comparing yours to. How can a valuation like that be "valuable?"

Our free comparative market evaluation of your condo or home in Bethesda is based on current data of nearby properties similar to yours that have recently sold. We will put provide you with a sales valuation of your home in today's market. Receive a market analysis of the value of your condo in Bethesda MD.

Hi Lise Howe there is not a question in my mind that you have mastered the condo market in the Bethesda area.... the magnitude of your knowledge is beyond what any real estate agent in your area could possibly compete with... but your level of intelligence far exceeds the typical real estate agent.... Law School is the proof!!! it's rare to find a real estate agent who is qualified to represent the legal end of the transaction, also.... you are "one stop shopping" for buyers and sellers who have the intelligence to hire you for their real estate transactions from start to finish.
