Located at 7420 Westlake Terrace, Bethesda MD, the Westlake Towers Condominiums in Montgomery County are next to a charming small lake and within three blocks of Montgomery Mall. The Westlake Towers, a high rise building, was built in 1976 and has 194 units from the very small management office to one very spacious unit on the 16th floor that was made by combining two condos into a 2031 square foot home.  These condominiums are well priced with condo fees over a thousand dollars a month for the larger units. 

The building is just a short walk to Montgomery Mall and the food court and shops and boutiques. The building also provides very easy access to I-270 and the Beltway. 

WESTLAKE TOWERS CONDOMINIUMS BETHESDA MD

Unlike the upscale buildings in downtown Bethesda, Westlake 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 in excess of $540.00 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 $900s.  A large three bedroom two bath condo might run into the high $300s with a condo fee in excess of $1100.  The higher condo fees have kept the price of the condos lower than one might expect for the square footage.

Since the building dates back to 1976, it is nearly impossible to make any blanket statements about the finishes offered in an individual unit.  

WESTLAKE TOWERS CONDO FEES AND AMENITIES

 

The Westlake Towers condo fees fall into the upper range of condo fees in Bethesda (particularly for this price range), but the square footage for the units is very large.  For example, the condo fee for a 1600 square foot 3 bedroom 2bath unit is approximately $1100 a month.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW HOW MUCH YOUR BETHESDA CONDO IS WORTH?

There are a number of sites on the internet that will give you 'estimates' for what your home will sell for. These sites use public records and usually some kind of algorithm to try to produce a value for your home. These sites also publicly state their 'error rates'. That means they aren't correct, they are simply an estimate based on incomplete date. We are happy to do a free comparative market analysis of your home or condo in Bethesda (or anywhere else in the DC metro area) and let you know what could expect to get in today's market if you are considering selling. Our valuation is based on up to the day data for homes that have recently sold in the area. Our valuation is not based on a formula that relies on public records which can take months to update.  Visit my website in order to get your free property evaluation for your Bethesda home or condo.

Hello Lise - there can be a feeling of "comfort"(for lack of a better word) for some owners knowing that on-site management representation is on site.
