“’Community’ is a central theme you’ll hear us talking a lot about,” said Amy Hodges, manager of The Retreat at Mountain Brook, the revitalized luxury apartment community located just off Montevallo Road on Sharpsburg Drive. “Our goal is to be involved in the community, supporting causes and organizations that are important to our residents.”
One of these initiatives includes sponsoring the Mountain Brook Chamber of Commerce quarterly luncheon in April at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, another organization The Retreat looks forward to working with.
“We will have a community garden on site where residents can enjoy cutting fresh herbs and flowers,” says Hodges. “We also realize how important pets are, so we are in the process of creating a fenced in dog park on premises for our resident’s use.”
Location is another reason The Retreat’s residents choose to live there. Residents at the Retreat are surrounded by Birmingham’s best restaurants, shopping, and entertainment opportunities. The nearby Avondale community offers unique restaurants such as Melt and Post Office Pies as well as Avondale Brewery for those looking for exciting nightlife with local brews.
Its an easy drive from The Retreat to Crestline Village, about three miles away. There, you can be pampered at Smart Skin Spa, shop at a variety of boutiques, grab a bagel at Crestline Bagel, or lunch at Urban Cookhouse, and of course enjoy an afternoon of Margarita’s at La Paz—all just a short distance from home.
