The Westlake Towers Condos
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 but the 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.
Values at The Westlake Towers Condos
Unlike the new and 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 mid 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. To find other condos like Westlake Towers, just click here!
Since the building dates back to 1976, it is nearly impossible to make any blanket statements about the finishes offered in an individual unit. Some recent sales have been very nicely updated with luxury finishes in the kitchens and baths.
The balconies are large and offer gorgeous views of Cabin John Park on the north side. On the south side, many have views of the neighboring lake, nearby condo buildings, trees, and a swimming pool.
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.

Value of Your Condo at Westlake Towers
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.
