Hardy Realty, Condo, Broad Street, The Lofts at Third & Broad, Floyd, Rome, March 2019, V3

Rising from a place of history in Downtown Rome, The Lofts on Broad is the newest addition to the Broad Street skyline. Featuring street level specialty retail boutiques, covered onsite parking and stunning panoramic views, the Lofts provide a new option for those seeking a living space that combines the ease of renting with the pride of ownership.

The private entrance for residents entering from Broad Street is located just off of 3rd Avenue, and is accessed by a key code entry. From there, guests catch the first glimpse of the hardwood floors with inlaid tile and thoughtfully placed chandeliers that create the rhythm of the building’s many hallways. Just off of the elevator to the third floor sits an indoor lounge that serves as a common area for residents, complete with television and L-shaped wet bar.

Step inside one of the building’s 26 total units and you will be greeted by soaring 12-foot ceilings and wide- planked wood floors soaked in sunlight.

Upon purchase of their unit, residents will have the opportunity to fully customize their home, from kitchen counters and cabinets, paint colors and textured carpet options, down to the tile in the oversized walk-in showers. One step outside to each unit’s balcony will bring all of the energy of Broad Street into the owner’s home, giving them a personal box seat for downtown concerts, festivals, parades and more.

"The Lofts are unique in that this is the only condo-style residence on Broad Street and your first chance to really have that loft-style living without the responsibility and the maintenance expense of buying an entire 100-year-old building on Broad Street.”

The Lofts offer a variety of bedroom options, ranging from two bedrooms that offer the owner the flexibility of an additional bedroom or a private study, to one bedroom units that boast stunning views of the heart of Rome. In addition, residents will enjoy the luxury of a secured parking garage located just below their home that is also accessible by elevator, joyfully banishing the days of schlepping groceries from street parking. This area also houses private storage units and bicycle parking.

Just above the on-site community workout facility is the true gem of the building, the rooftop deck. From here, residents can relax on the outdoor sofa and chairs, watch a game on the wide screen television, exercise their green thumb in the community raised garden beds or, best of all, soak in the views that surround them. “This is my favorite place,” says listing agent Kimberly Prusakowski. “Look at this fantastic view. You’ve got steeples, the Clocktower, and Historic Downtown Rome as a backdrop.”

Beyond the beauty and luxury of The Lofts and their surroundings, downtown living also provides a lifestyle that is the perfect balance of both involvement and ease. Just steps away from endless shopping and restaurants options, this location truly provides an opportunity to live, work and play downtown, all without ever needing to start your car. “The Lofts are unique in that this is the only condo-style residence on Broad Street,” says Prusakowski, “and your first chance to really have that loft-style living without the responsibility and the maintenance expense of buying an entire 100-year-old building on Broad Street.”

For those on either stretch of adult life who are looking for the convenience of maintenance free living, The Lofts provide the perfect solution. While homeowner’s insurance covers the interior of the units, everything outside an owner’s front door is fully taken care of. “You could step out, lock your door and be away for six months and not worry about the exterior of the building. Someone else is handling that maintenance for you,” says Prusakowski.

Hand in hand with the worry free benefit of the building, owners will immediately notice the cost efficiency of eliminating potential maintenance costs from their budget.

As the movement towards downtown living continues and residents search for a place to call home that offers luxury, convenient locations and beautiful surroundings, they won’t need to look any further than The Lofts on Broad. While units are currently still available for sale, any wise gambler could bet that this opportunity to live in this country-chic location will not last for long.
