The luxury condos at Fox Hill Club and Residences, a senior living community in Bethesda, are back on the market after a year-long hiatus during which investment firm HJ Sims took over full ownership of the remaining 165 units.
The one- to three-bedroom condos range from 834 to 1,995 square feet and $350,000 to $1.3 million, says Kristin Kutac Ward, president of Retiring by Design, a marketing firm working with Fox Hill.
“It’s beautiful craftsman-style architecture,” says Kutac Ward. The condos are designed with of a lot of wood, crown molding, marble and granite, she says.
The 240 condos for seniors ages 60 and up were first available in 2008. They sit on 16-acres that back up against Burning Tree Golf Club.
The community includes many amenities like a gym, a performing arts center that seats 200, a virtual golf room with real putters and drivers, a swimming pool, a wine tasting room and cellar, a full service salon and spa and an art studio with art classes offered. There are organized trips to the Kennedy Center, lectures from visiting professors and housekeeping, as well as four different dining experiences from take-out to formal sit-down.
“It’s like being on a cruise ship,” Kutac Ward says. “It’s hassle-free living in a resort style luxury environment.”
Kutac Ward says the community is perfect for people who want to downsize to a no-hassle living situation. Many of the current residents, she says, travel a lot without worry, knowing their homes are secure in the community.
“It is a community for people who are tired of maintaining a very large home and want to downsize to maintenance-free living where there’s ample opportunity for socialization,” says Kutac Ward.
Each residence also includes an emergency push button that will garner the attention of Fox Hill staff who are all trained in CPR.
All this comes at a price and depending on the home, residents pay a $3,000 to $5,000 monthly fee.
Sunrise Senior Living runs an assisted living space on one of the floors of Fox Hill but has its own dining area and activities space.
