In April, Barrett & Stokley will open some of the swankiest apartments available in Carmel.
Tenants could pay as much as $1,900 a month, but amenities should be plentiful: attached two-car garages, two-story fitness center and a giant swimming pool with a lap pool and TVs as you sunbathe. The luxurious upscale feel is modeled after resort communities.
The Seasons of Carmel is located on Westfield Boulevard across from the Sunrise golf course that Old Town Design Group will be developing into homes. Situated near the county border, Alex Barrett, district manager for the company, said it will be a short drive away from Nora in Indianapolis and the Carmel City Center.
“It’s close to everything you want, but still just removed enough from the hustle and bustle,” she said. “It’s very conveniently located.”
There will be 256 units with 29 different floor plans spread out among 14 buildings. There are about three ranges for apartment types. About a third will be around 900 square feet with no elevator access starting around $900 a month. About a third will from 600 to 1,800 square feet with elevator access around $1,800 a month, at the most. About a third will be around 860 to 1,633-square feet with two-car garages attached around $1,900 a month at the most.
Every unit will have granite countertops, flat-top stoves, double-door refrigerators with filtered water dispenser and a washer and dryer inside the apartment. In addition to the garages, underground parking or covered spots will be available so residents don’t have to walk in the elements. There’s a dog-washing station, called a “paw wash,” in the basement with ample bicycle storage. A multi-use path will connect pedestrians and cyclists to the Monon Trail from the property. There are electric car charging stations, a business center with a conference room available to residents, fire pits and a bocce ball field.
The giant resort pool will be about 1,800-square feet with stone walkways that lead to an island. Bistro tables, grilling stations and TVs surround the pool that overlooks garden areas and a two-acre pond with fountains. The two-story fitness center should have enough variety in equipment, “that you don’t need a gym membership,” Barrett said.
“If you don’t want to buy, but you want some of the luxuries of a home, here’s a place you can rent that’s convenient,” she said. “The whole idea of the complex was to make it feel like a resort.”
Local developer Pittman Partners is working with Barrett & Stokley on the 21-acre project, valued around $34 million. The first units will be available the beginning of April. Interested residents can reserve their ideal apartment by visiting www.theseasonsofcarmel.com or call 1-888-239-0388.
