Living it up

Highland House
5480 Wisconsin Ave.
Chevy Chase 20815

Highland House Apartments is located on Wisconsin Avenue just a block away from the Friendship Heights Metro. The units look out onto what many call Washington’s version of Rodeo Drive — shops that include Tiffany’s, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton. Many of the residents are older, which creates a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere. However, there are just as many young professionals there as well.

Amenities at Highland House include a rooftop pool and sundeck, 24-hour gym and a center that picks up all of your package deliveries for you.

Highland House offers five different types of floor plans, including efficiencies and two- bedroom, two-bathroom options. For more information, pay a visit to the building or call the leasing office at 1-888-758-2944.

Archstone Wisconsin Place
4440 Willard Ave.
Chevy Chase 20815

Wisconsin Place is a brand-new addition to the Friendship Heights neighborhood. The complex is a part of the new Shops at Wisconsin Place, a group of high-end stores such as MAC Cosmetics and Cole Haan. The stores and apartment complex are anchored by Bloomingdales.

Amenities at Wisconsin Place are vast — some apartments even have gas fireplaces. There is also an Internet lounge with free WiFi, coffee and tea. The complex boasts a brand-new rooftop pool and will be steps from new restaurants such as The Capitol Grille and a Whole Foods set to open at the end of the year. Also, Wisconsin Place accepts pets up to 70 pounds.

If you’re interested in Wisconsin Place, be prepared to pay a significant price — studios and efficiencies are priced in the $2,000s. For more information on leasing, call 1-888-308-5351.

Topaz House
4400 East-West Highway
Bethesda 20814

Topaz House, like most of the luxury apartments in the area, offers a rooftop pool and is two blocks from the Bethesda Metro. It also offers courtyard gardens as a place to relax.

Topaz has six different floor plan options in addition to fully furnished corporate apartments. Unlike other buildings, Topaz offers an on-sight party room with a wet bar and kitchenette. There is also an on-sight Zipcar rental.

Being so close to downtown Bethesda, Topaz is great for those who’ve fallen in love with the area. The building is steps from all the restaurants and movie theaters along Bethesda Row, and near numerous grocery stores including a Trader Joe’s. For leasing information, call 301-657-2222.

The Whitney at Bethesda Theatre
7707 Wisconsin Ave.
Bethesda 20814

The Whitney is located a few blocks past the Bethesda Metro, but extremely close to all of the hustle and bustle of the area. If you choose to live here, the Whitney offers as little as a one-bedroom apartment option and a townhouse option as well.

Much like Wisconsin Place, The Whitney offers gas fireplaces and private balconies or terraces. There is a guest suite in the building for family and friends who come to visit and may not be able to fit into your apartment (or if you don’t want to have houseguests).

The building is also very close to the Capital Crescent Trail for those of you who are active and looking for some outdoor fun before the weather turns cold. For more information on leasing, call 1-888-483-1958.
