Chateau On Central Transforms Arizona Living With Five-story Luxury Brownstones

PHOENIX, June 29, 2012 — /PRNewswire/ — Arizona is traditionally known for palatial desert estates that feature tile-roofs and stucco siding. Chateau On Central in downtown Phoenix is turning that concept upside down with its East Coast vibe. Featuring five-story brick and masonry brownstones, Chateau On Central is bringing a piece of New York living to the Valley of the Sun.

This Old World style brownstone community features the same brick and mortar architecture reminiscent of historic East Coast cities like New York, Boston or Philadelphia. From classic patina turrets and wrought iron detailing to spacious private terraces, Chateau On Central is a sophisticated 21-residence brownstone community. The facility offers its residents a rare opportunity to experience an opulent East Coast lifestyle at one-tenth of the cost. Chateau On Central’s homes start from $1.1 million and range in size from 5,200 to 5,800 square feet.

Set in the heart of Phoenix, Chateau On Central’s location can’t be beat. Just steps away from The Phoenix Art Museum, the city’s professional sports complexes, and some of the best shopping and restaurants in Phoenix, Chateau On Central gives residents a true city living experience.

“Chateau On Central’s buyers continually express their desire to leave their high-maintenance estates for a lock-and-leave property, eliminating the need for excessive upkeep. We offer the same exclusivity and lavish amenities as estates without the burden of pool maintenance, landscaping or security issues,” says Victoria Kulszan with Cambridge Properties.

ABOUT CHATEAU ON CENTRAL Chateau On Central offers 21 residences that each feature five levels of opulent living space in the heart of Phoenix. Every home is equipped with a private commercial-sized elevator to provide easy access to all five levels. With six flexible floor plans and multifunction light commercial zoning available, buyers can tailor each home to fit their individual needs including having an office on the first level with the residence above. Residences also feature gourmet kitchens with deluxe Viking appliances, multiple terraces, a customizable rooftop terrace that is perfect for a fireplace or outdoor kitchen.

Medical Professionals are among the busiest people in the valley. Like most of us, physicians have many things they would rather do with their precious time off than mow the lawn and fix the plumbing. It’s because of this need for a carefree home environment that many medical professionals are looking at “lock and leave” residences such as Chateau on Central and Montelucia
