Luxury, gated Living atop red mountain


REALTORS:

We know your time is limited and you want to have the best possible description for Regency Crown condos when you are listing them for a client. We have created the following descriptive verbiage that you are welcome to copy and paste. There are also photos on the Photos page and you are welcome to download those and use them in your listing as well. Oftentimes in the past we have found that Realtors create content based on what they know about our property, which may be based on limited information passed along by a seller or seller's estate, but that dramatically undersells the many amenities of the Regency Crown Condominiums. We want to help you sell your listing.



SHOWINGS:

Remember that since we have a 24 hour guard gate, if you are showing during the day you will need to get a temporary gate code from our office administrator (see Contact page). This will require verification from the actual seller that you are authorized for this temporary code. The code will expire and you may need to get it renewed prior to your next showing. This will all need to be arranged in advance, as there is only a guard on duty at the guard shack at night- the guard shack gate is accessible only by code during the day. Please be with all potential buyers at all times on our property. Also, remember that our entire property is a NO PET PROPERTY, which is great for those with allergies or those sensitive to the sounds or presence of animals. Many of our owners chose our property for this reason. You may want to remind any prospects of this up front. The HOA fee covers many amenities as outlined on the amenities page but is different based on the square footage of that particular unit. Even-numbered units face Homewood/Mountain Brook/Vestavia and odd-numbered units face downtown Birmingham and beyond. The exceptions are the end units and penthouses which have views of both.


DESCRIPTION:

(Feel welcome to copy and paste any or all of this into your listing. Also feel welcome to use photos from our website in your listings.)


Regency Crown is truly one of Birmingham's hidden treasures, though in plain view. As a seven story high rise sitting atop Red Mountain, the views are stunning. Odd numbered units face downtown with views of the downtown cityscape and many miles beyond on the horizon. Even numbered units face south and overlook Homewood, Mountain Brook, and Vestavia. There are also end units and penthouses that have views of both sides of the mountain. No matter which unit, you can see either a sunset or a sunrise every day. The building is the middle of three high rise condominium buildings you can see on the mountaintop that were built by the same developer in the early 1980s but that are all legally separate today. The majority of units are owner-inhabited as either first or second homes.

The Regency Crown is gated 24 hours a day, with security guards on duty at night. The amenities included in the HOA fee (different monthly amounts based on your unit size) include: security, a salt water pool, a recently renovated gym, a sauna, a steam room, a party room that can be reserved for your special occasions, two tennis courts, a small shared library, five common area balconies (in addition to your private balcony or balconies), beautiful landscaping, on-site mail delivery, common area maintenance, and discounted maintenance work inside your unit. The HOA cost additionally includes water, sewer, cable for your unit, building insurance, as well as gas for your gas fireplace. Another portion of the HOA monthly fee accumulates into a fund that is set aside for pre-planned building maintenance in the future. The HOA board believes in being pro-active in maintenance when elements come to the end of their life span. One example of this is the roof replacement at pre-planned intervals in the future.

The extremely well constructed Regency Crown is surprisingly noise insulated thanks to quality steel and concrete construction. Even sitting on your balcony you're more likely to notice the birds singing than sounds of the city.

Regency Crown is a great home for those with allergies or those sensitive to the presence of animals, because the Crown property is a no pet property.

The culture at Regency Crown is great. Neighbors are respectful but fun. While it is uncommon to get an unsolicited knock on your door, it is not uncommon to receive a call or email inviting you to join neighbors for a social. And you'll find a wide diversity in who lives among us- neighbors ranging from their 20's to their 90's. From graduate students to retirees, with lots of current professions represented in between, including small business owners, engineers, scientists, educators, accountants, CEOs, dentists, doctors, and philanthropists.

And while we have a Homewood zip code, we're actually in the Birmingham city limits which means lower taxes but still with great public amenities such as city fire and emergency responders.

We're pretty much directly in the center of convenience. You're only a few minutes to downtown Birmingham, downtown Homewood, Highway 280, or I-65. And if you like outdoor exercise, we are within walking distance of an access point for Vulcan Trail.

So come check us out. Consider what it would be like to look at a gorgeous view every day, to live in a private and secure home that is 'lock and leave ready' when you want to travel. And imagine all the fun you'll have beside the pool at one of the low-key spontaneous socials that occur throughout the spring, summer, and fall. You'll soon get to hear what we all hear on a regular basis from first time guests to our condos: "Wow, whoa, what a view! I had no idea there was a place like this in Birmingham!"
