WHY LIVE AT THE WHITEHALL CONDOMINIUMS?
Because it’s quiet and set in green space!
Bethesda has grown in the last few years from a quiet little area with a surface parking lot or two and a Barnes and Noble. Now it is a community with luxury high rise condos, a park, trendy stores and upscale restaurants. Bethesda has gone high end! It is a great place to shop and dine, but for many people it is overwhelming as a place to live. Some residents long for the “good old days” when Bethesda was still small town with a Boston Chicken and a video store.
For those people who enjoy a little peace and quiet, I will share my best kept secret. The place to live in Bethesda is the Whitehall Condominiums!
The Whitehall Condominiums includes two high rise buildings and a cluster of townhomes. The community is on the edge of downtown Bethesda, close to the NIH Metro and Walter Reed.
You have amazing views of downtown Bethesda or the green space of the NIH campus behind the Whitehall buildings. Across the street is a small park and public tennis courts, the perfect complement to the condo’s swimming pool and exercise room.
THE WHITEHALL FLOORPLANS
There are nearly 300 units in the two buildings of the Whitehall, with a variety of units
to choose from. For instance, there are one and two bedrooms and even mid sized 3 bedroom townhouses. The addresses for the two buildings are 4977 Battery Lane and 8315 Brook Lane, Bethesda, MD 20814.
The town homes offer about 1540 square feet on two levels with three bedrooms and two baths upstairs and a separate dining room and living room in addition to a table space kitchen and half bath. The town homes are particularly distinctive with their floor to ceiling windows, rear patios overlooking the pool, floating staircases and mid-century styling!
One bedroom condos are approximately 827 square feet (not counting the balcony) while the two bedroom one bath units are approximately 1100 square feet and the two bedroom two bath condos are a little more than 1200 square feet. The townhouses are a particular treat with over 1500 square feet of space on two levels and 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
THE WHITEHALL CONDOMINIUM LIFE
The Whitehall Condos are composed of two high rise buildings and 13 townhouses. The front desk is located at 4977 Battery Lane, the larger building with approximately 260 units. The condos at 8315 Brook are the larger units, although the building itself has fewer units. The Whitehall buildings were built in 1963, but did not become condominiums until late 1982.
The original floor plans are very traditional with enclosed kitchens and smaller bathrooms. Nonetheless, the living space and bedrooms are very spacious. 827 square feet for a one bedroom and 1200 square feet for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo for the prices at the Whitehall is incredible value in Bethesda.
The condo fees are on the high side however, which probably serves to keep the condo prices lower. However, the fee includes gas, electric, water, sewer, common area maintenance, the front desk, the exercise room, pool and the master insurance policy. The condo fees range from nearly $600 for a one bedroom condo to nearly $1000 for the largest two bedroom condo and over $1300 for the town homes.
The Whitehall even welcomes pets, including dogs less than 30 pounds! While you can have a dog at the Whitehall, you cannot have a washing machine or dryer in your unit. Nonetheless, there are laundry rooms on each floor for the residents. The buildings are very friendly places to live!

What is Your Whitehall Condominium 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 data. If you would like to find out why Zillow and other sites can’t make an accurate valuation of your home, please continue reading.
