On May 13 I had the opportunitiy to tour Fox Hill Residences.  It’s a condominium community for age 60+, on 16 wooded acres near River Road and I-495.  Teresa Lahm, a Retirement Counselor there, was my tour guide.

Fox Hill is different than many of the other places I’ve toured in that you buy your condominium.  They have many sizes and layouts available, ranging from a one bedroom with 874 square feet, to a three bedroom with a den with 2,126 square feet.  Prices range from around 371K to 1,039K, depending on the condominium.  There is also a monthly service fee, which includes weekly housekeeping, scheduled group transportation, an emergency call system, most utilities, and a credit to be used towards meals, the spa, and other internal services.

Fox Hill has many amenities, included an indoor heated pool, a fitness center, an indoor virtual driving range and practice facility, an outdoor putting green, a spa, a wine cellar with tasting room, a recording studio, and a woodworking shop, just to name a few.  Residents can purchase meals in several different restaurants in the building.

The top three floors of Fox Hill are a Sunrise Senior Living community, which houses residences who need assisted living or memory care.  It’s important to note that buying a condo at Fox Hill doesn’t mean you’ve also bought into Sunrise—they are separate from one another.  But you have the advantage of being near your old friends and neighbors if you need to move into the Sunrise part of the building.

Residents at Fox Hill who find they need additional care can bring in home health aides.  Fox Hill has a partnership set up with Family and Nursing Care, and can help match residents with an aide if need be.  That way residents can remain in their condominium for as long as possible.

If you are thinking about touring Fox Hill and might like me to represent you as your buyer's agent there, please call me before contacting anyone at Fox Hill.  Fox Hill will only pay for you to have a buyer's agent if your buyer's agent makes the appointment for you.  If you've contacted them without an agent, they won't pay for you to have an agent.  I've had several people learn this lesson the hard way.  You can contact me at 202-352-4899 or catherine.s@lnf.com.
