Bethesda Homes and Condos for Sale

Bethesda, though a suburb of Washington DC, has an exciting and vibrant downtown area with many shops and restaurants. This confident community is very lively and active.

Bethesda, which was named after a local church in the 19th century, grew rapidly after streetcar service was installed between Georgetown and Rockville. After World War II, the National Naval Hospital and the National Institutes of Health were built nearby, attracting federal workers, military personnel and contractors. Today it is a thriving community with several corporate headquarters and a high-density downtown area.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Bethesda offers residents the option of living in a more relaxed, low-stress environment or in a dynamic downtown core.
