For 28 years, Five Star Premier Residences of Chevy Chase has been an elegant home to
individuals, 55 and over, who appreciate having a high-quality lifestyle without the large
equity investment that many similar independent and assisted living communities require
upon entry. Five Star residents simply commit to a monthly rent.
The high-rise building’s balconies overlook lovely views of the adjacent Columbia
Country Club and its golf course, with Bethesda in the background. Many choose Five
Star for, in part, its very convenient location close to all the shopping, cultural events and
dining opportunities that abound in Washington and its northwest suburbs.
“We are proud of our concierge services that include 24/7 desk staff and a doorman, our
beautiful common areas, and fine finishes and furnishings. Anything our residents want
or need, they can have on site, including different kinds of therapies. Above all, perhaps,
we boast about low staff turnover. We hire quality people who care. Almost half of the staff
has been here more than a decade,” says Executive Director John Higgins, who has been
at Five Star for more than 20 years. “And we are always updating and upgrading; newly
renovated apartments are regularly available.”
Residents dine any time they wish, enjoying wide-ranging menus created by chef
Brandon Williams, who has worked in many fine restaurants and considers it a privilege to
have trained under renowned chef and humanitarian Jose Andres. Another great offering is
the Lifestyle 360 Program that is an intentional approach to living a healthier, happier and
enhanced life, with over 300 social and recreational opportunities on the calendar every
month, including activities and therapies in the indoor pool.
