Which Bethesda Condos Have Pools? Ask the Bethesda Condo Queen

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

One thing which you can count on in the DC metro area in the summer is that it will be hazy, hot and humid!  On the dog daors of summer, is there anything more appealing than the prospect of a dip in the pool?  Hanging out at the pool is a great way to relax and a wonderful way to meet your neighbors!  

Since I am the Bethesda Condo Queen, I know the Bethesda condo market well and I love sharing information about the best condos for your wants and needs!  Here are some of my favorite pools so if you want to see any of them, please give me a call at 240-401-5577 or email me at lise@lisehowe.com!



The Whitehall condos are a short walk to the Bethesda and NIH metros.  This mid century modern community has a big pool and tot pool plus a fitness center, front desk and lots of parking. Many of the condos have large balconies and views of Bethesda.  Best of all, they are reasonably priced, although their condo fee is on the higher side since all the utilities and amenities are included.  If this sounds like what you are looking for, click here to see what is for sale now at the Whitehall. This condo building is just a short walk to to the Woodmont Triangle - where Bethesda is filled with independent restaurants and stores and lots of places to walk.
