Brownstones in Greenville, SC?

I've always thought it would be cool if Greenville had some Brooklyn-style Brownstone townhomes somewhere downtown. The Commons at Hampton Pinckney were pretty close...I guess you could call those Brownstones. I still thought there would be demand for even more in an even more urban setting.

Enter The Brownstones on Rhett Street in Greenville's West End. This 9-unit complex of brownstone-style townhomes is currently under construction and on the market. There is one unit already under contract. I think this is a great project in a vibrant part of downtown Greenville. My only problem is the Buckhead-esque pricing of these units. Starting at $799,000, they hardly qualify as anywhere near affordable for the average Greenvillian.

From the marketing material...

The Brownstones are replete with all the authentic architectural details that America's finest urban neighborhoods are known for, such as brick and stone exteriors, 12' ceilings on the main floor, site finished hardwood floors, beautiful moldings, ceramic tile baths, 8' windows, and a 4' parapet surrounding the rooftop sunroom and courtyard for outdoor living.

Of course, The Brownstones also include all the modern comforts and conveniences you would expect, such as an open, granite kitchen with custom made cabinetry, stainless steel Wolf appliances, and a luxurious master suite. And there's more . . . secure, gated entry, abundant recessed lighting, private two-car attached garage (side by side parking, not end-to-end), and your own private elevator that extends all the way from the basement level garage to the rooftop sunroom.

Certainly a unique property for Greenville. I'll be keeping an eye on how well they sell.
