General Information: The Academy at St Gregory began as a public school in 1894, an era when public buildings commonly showcased the best construction of the time. The school was converted to the Art Academy in the 1980’s.
It’s this most recent use that inspired the name of this residential development of 14 individual condominiums. You will be inspired every time you enter the magnificent entry. Where else can you live where your front door is framed with 20 foot tall, carved stone and huge fan window?
The renovation in 2005 was done with a vision of preserving as much of the original integrity as possible while contemporizing the living spaces in a dramatically lovely way. The lobby was designed to be comfortably elegant - as indeed are the individual residences.
The original hardwood maple floors on the second and third floors were preserved. Flooring on the first and fourth floors are new maple hardwood. Kitchens have been elegantly designed with granite counters, Jenn-Aire appliances, and custom Haas cabinetry. High quality Kohler plumbing fixtures have been used throughout. Granite was also used in bathrooms. All windows are double glazed insulated for energy efficiency.
There is a wide variety of floor plans. One of the units is the largest one floor plan in the center of Mt Adams. Fourth floor residences have additional loft space. Fourth floor residences also offer some magnificent views.
There is perhaps no better location for those who enjoy being near the center of social activity. Many of the most popular gathering spots are just steps away. This Mt Adams street had all its utility lines put underground in 2009- making the street that much more attractive!
The Blind Lemon, Mt Adams Bar & Grill, Longworths, Tap & Go, The Pavilion, Crowley's, The Wine Cellar, Monk's Cove, Tavern on the Hill, Rookwood - these are just some of the favorite local places to meet and hangout with old friends - and new friends.
Some of the best dining is right outside the front door. Teak and Celestial, are just some of the choices. Your morning cup of coffee is waiting for you across at the UDF across the street.
A great deal about Mt Adams can be gleaned for their own website. MtAdamsToday.
The convenience of these residences goes beyond dining. You are as close to Downtown as you can possibly be. It’s possible to be at Fountain Square in just 8 minutes. Access to the freeways is just 3 minutes away.
Since November 1, 2013, Academy residences have sold for between $179,900 (a three room unit) to $420,000 (for an exquisite 7 room residence). We have seen HOAs for these units range from $385 to $658/month. These are based on square footage.
