A powerful boost for downtown Winston-Salem, Hilltop House Apartment Homes
Hilltop House is located on an elevated promontory in the center of historic Brookstown neighborhood, adjacent to the stroll way in downtown Winston Salem. Nestled between the city center and the historic eighteenth century village of Old Salem, this pedestrian-friendly Brookstown neighborhood is an eclectic blend of historic and traditional buildings that have been transformed into condominiums, offices, and restaurants. Within the neighborhood, you will find hotels, a children’s museum, and one of the best coffee shop/bakeries in town. It is five blocks or less to Old Salem, downtown restaurants, nightclubs, churches, the BB&T Ballpark, and major employers. Convenient to I-40 for easy trips in and out of town, Brookstown offers a setting that pairs almost magical, historic architecture with new world amenities.
Advocating sustainability, the owners of Hilltop House purposefully renovated the existing 1960’s vintage buildings to provide apartment homes instead of tearing down all buildings and rebuilding structures that may not be in character with the neighborhood. This was a decision that although costs much more, stands on the principles of the owners to create living spaces of great character in environmentally sustainable ways.
All apartment homes in these repurposed buildings are oriented toward an interior courtyard and swimming pool with enchanting views. The building exterior will be restored and celebrated. The building interiors will be completely renovated to provide functional apartments with quality finishes. The typical “linear design” floor plan allows for maximized daylight, quality views, increased occupant comfort, and decreased lighting energy cost.
On the northern portion of the site, the owners will construct a new four-story apartment building with dramatic views of both downtown Winston-Salem and Old Salem. Each apartment home, except the studio, includes an exterior balcony and all have finish materials of quality and permanence.
Apartment home count: 54 renovated and 56 new
Just a few of the amenities are:
•Club room and lounge (available for tenant private events).
•Included well lit parking adjacent to each apartment home.
•Quality views of downtown Winston-Salem and historic Old Salem.
•State-of-the-art laundry facilities.
•Around-the-clock fitness center.
•Private balconies and patios.
•Apartments available furnished and unfurnished.
•Stainless steel appliance package.
