Do your dreams include leaving your old suburban home and moving to a new luxury condo in downtown Bethesda? Are you working so hard that you need a reward – like a new luxury condo in downtown Bethesda? Does the Adagio seem old hat now? The Lionsgate just seems past tense? Are you looking for a new luxury condo in the heart of Bethesda? There are lots of new options being built now!

For starts, you should check out the Darcy – you know – the construction site at Bethesda Avenue and Woodmont Avenue which is a huge hole in ground right now- and for the next several years! The Darcy is named for the founder of the downtown Bethesda business district – William E. Darcy, who in 1862 opened the first general store in the area, at the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Wisconsin Avenues. Mr. Darcy was also a farmer and postmaster of the area that was known as Darcy PO until Bethesda was established in 1871.  And you wondered where the post office had gotten to!

The Darcy is being built by PN Hoffman and Stonebridge Carras. Other projects that PN Hoffman and Stonebridge Carras have built together include Chevy Chase Point, Chevy Chase Center, the Edgemoor Condominium, and Two Bethesda Metro Center.

The Darcy will offer all the upscale amenities that a Bethesda luxury condo buyer would expect- state of the art fitness center, two hospitality suites for guests, a club room with media services, an owners lounge with espresso maker and a kitchenette, secure garage with car wash bay, bicycle parking ,and business center. The services promised by the 24/7 front desk concierge makes my heart skip a beat- dog walking services, housekeeping, plant maintenance, flower deliveries, grocery shopping, car detailing, event tickets, minor home repairs, gift shopping, and prescription pickup! On the ground floor of the building will be 8600 square feet of retail space, including a signature restaurant.

This will certainly be luxury condo living in Bethesda! For example, on the penthouse 9th floor level there are 6 condos ranging in size from a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath condo with nearly 3000 square feet of space and a balcony. The smallest condo on the penthouse level is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit at 1570 square feet. Some units offer gas fireplaces, while others will have large terraces. The kitchens will be outfitted with Bosch and Thermador appliances, wine coolers, built in espresso machines, and warming drawers. Bathrooms will have natural stone floors, frameless shower doors, and natural stone counters.
