With just a 10-minute drive to hip neighborhoods like Avondale, Crestwood and Crestline Village in Mountain Brook — and only a 5-minute drive to creature comforts Publix and Starbucks — The Retreat at Mountain Brook celebrates modern, easy, apartment living in Birmingham, Ala.
“Nestled against the city of Mountain Brook, The Retreat was designed to bring back the notions of community, neighborhood, and convenience,” says Natausha Oakes, community manager at The Retreat at Mountain Brook. “It’s a community where every detail makes luxury seem simple.”
The Retreat offers one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as townhomes, in 3 distinctive villages; Greenbriar, Highland, and Canterbury. Each village has a resort-style salt water pool with grilling stations for outdoor entertaining. “The spacious indoor and outdoor spaces deliver warm, welcoming, and enduring sentiments — making for a home-like atmosphere.”
From fully renovated chef inspired kitchens with stainless appliances, to separate dining rooms, outdoor living spaces like balconies, sunrooms, or a patio with a fenced-in yard, The Retreat has gained a reputation for providing open, expansive residences that feel charming, yet modern.
“Our spacious floor plans are equipped to accommodate a variety of lifestyles,” explains Oakes. “For example, our 2-bedroom townhomes have floor plans ideal for a large family, or roommates. Each apartment is furnished with a washer and dryer, and each living room has an electric fireplace that adds to the ambience.”
“We host events tailored to our residents, like Breakfast on the Go, Wine Down by the Pool, and we recently hosted our first Yappy Hour at our dog-park. It was a huge success and loads of fun for everyone,” says Oakes. “The Retreat at Mountain Brook is a great place to live and work and gives Birmingham dwellers the opportunity to take part in our city’s resurgence and engage in the cool, modern southern lifestyle.
