The Columns Condominiums is a condominium complex carved out of a historic building. The Columns was built in 1836 and was formerly known as the Calvin Locke House. Bold, tall Greek columns characterize the front of this building. There are four stunning units housed within The Columns, ranging from 1,000 to 2,800 square feet. Their price range is approximately $230,000. The Columns has been described as a "hidden gem," and a description that is entirely accurate. This spectacular condominium complex offers the perfect combination of historic charm with modern convenience. The best part is that each unit is an affordable price.
The Columns offers four spacious condos with high ceilings and spacious open floor plans. Partially exposed brick gives the units a lot of character. The living room has gleaming hardwood flooring with windows that let in a lot of natural sunlight. This building has three floors. The top-floor units are Soho-style lofts with incredible vaulted ceilings and huge skylights. The kitchen has decorative cabinets that provide plenty of storage space. Some units feature a kitchen island or a breakfast bar with a stove/oven cleverly built into it. The kitchens are also equipped with a refrigerator and dishwasher.
The bedrooms in each unit are spacious and during the daytime, glisten with natural sunlight thanks to several large windows. The bedrooms also have high ceilings and a generous amount of closet space. The bathrooms boast ceramic tile floors and granite counters. Some units have custom built-in shelving for additional storage. These units also feature cozy fireplaces.
