Buyers looking for a high-rise condominium building with plenty of on-site recreational amenities, buyers hoping to live close to public transportation and buyers wanting a home surrounded by shops, restaurants and entertainment can find all of these characteristics in a home at the Chase at Bethesda.

The two towers of this former luxury apartment complex at 7500 Woodmont Ave. include 377 condominiums with one or two bedrooms, and some include a den.

Monument Realty LLC purchased the apartments earlier this year for conversion to condominiums, renovating each individual home along with some minor renovations to the community.

The Chase at Bethesda includes two swimming pools, two tennis courts, a fitness center, an outdoor grilling area, a business center, underground parking and concierge services.

A few steps away from the Bethesda Metro station, the Chase is also within walking distance of dozens of restaurants ranging from casual outdoor cafes to upscale settings and include nearly every type of cuisine available in the world.

Bethesda’s art galleries, bookshops, movie theaters, outdoor concerts and farmers markets offer a range of entertainment and activities. The Capital Crescent Trail, a short walk from the Chase, runs from Silver Spring through Rock Creek Park to the Georgetown waterfront.

As part of the conversion process, Monument Realty has upgraded the homes in the Chase with hardwood flooring in the kitchen, living room, dining room and foyer.

Each home has a choice of granite or marble stone flooring in the bathroom, with a maple vanity and a granite counter. The kitchen includes granite counters, maple cabinets and stainless steel appliances including a built-in microwave.

The homes also have new gas heating and central air conditioning with a digital thermostat and a full-size washer and dryer. Each home has a balcony and the upper-floor residences include a wood-burning fireplace.

The one-bedroom homes with one bath are priced from the upper $200,000s, with the one-bedroom-and-den homes priced from the mid-$400,000s.

The two-bedroom, two-bath homes are priced from the low $600,000s. Two-bedroom-and-den homes are priced from the upper $700,000s.

Condominium fees range from $180 to $570 per month.
