‘Stay with us long term’

Greyson on 27 now leasing in Nicholasville


The Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce held its monthly luncheon at Greyson on 27, a new property offering apartments and townhomes and now leasing with eleven tenants so far and an estimated move-in ready date of mid to late November.

“This property has a really cool history if you are not familiar with it,” Property Manager Sarah Woods said at the luncheon. “This was the Fairview Farm this home was built in the 1850s and it was a tobacco farm. The home has been owned by Daniel Boone lineage and was a look out post during the Civil War.”

Located at 104 Connell Drive, the former home which sits on the 66 acre property will be renovated and house the complex’s club house. The building will include leasing offices, lounge area, 24/7 fitness center and a heated salt water pool area complete with a grilling station and fire pit.

“We are extremely honored to be able to restore this home and to keep it around and keep it on the property and we are going to do some amazing things with it,” Woods said.

With a move in date anticipated at the end of November, Woods said potential residents will have 16 floorplans to choose from. Floorplans range from a one bedroom one bath apartment to three bedroom two and a half bath townhouses.

“All buildings up now are anticipated for move in this year, we are really excited about that,” Woods said.

The complex will have three different entrance points for traffic including Connell Drive which will connect to US 27, Bethel Harvest and Ashgrove Pike. Offices are open now with hours 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Residents will also be allowed to customize their apartment or townhouse.

“We love when people stay with us long term and we want this to be a home not just an apartment,” Woods said. “We strive to make it a community. Part of that is allowing residents to customize to fit needs.”

One-bedroom apartments will range from $955 to $1,335 and come in floorplans from 803 to 1,105 square feet. Two-bedroom units are priced at $1,220 to $1,655 and range from 1,121 to 1,450 square feet. Three-bedroom townhouses will be priced at $1,710 to $1,800, include at two car garage and will range up to 1,700 square feet.

Features include quartz countertops in the kitchen with a glass backsplash and stainless steel appliances with white cabinetry with soft close hinges. Bathrooms will include the same cabinetry and countertops. Large LED lit mirrors and marble tile will surround the tub and shower. On the first-floor, apartments will feature wood flooring throughout except for the bedrooms. Second and third floors will feature carpet. Living rooms will feature a two-tone color grey option with crown molding.

“It will look really spectacular,” Woods said.

Buildings are unique, Woods said, as a key or intercom access is needed to gain entry into a building.

“We will have 24/7 emergency maintenance for residents,” Woods said. “If something pops up, our maintenance guys will be readily available.”

Greyson on 27 has also been looking at the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office for a curtesy officer who would also be on the property. Residents are allowed to install security systems as well. Pets are allowed, and a dog run will be installed on the property in the future.

“For pets we are doing something unique,” Woods said. “We are not charging a pet deposit, we’re are only charging a $200 pet registration fee for the household.”

Woods said one pet per month is $35, two pets per month will receive a discount at $50. Cats and dogs are allowed but breed restrictions will apply.

“They are going to fall in line with the surrounding communities breed restrictions as well,” Woods said.

When asked if the property would include a playground, Woods said plans are not currently in place to house one, although with the property being set on 66 acres there is the space if the addition of one is needed or wanted down the road. Walking paths will also be installed around the community for residents.

“This is great for pets if you are taking them on a walk, or if you just want to get outside and be in nature,” Woods said.

Leasing options will start with a 12-month lease term. Typically, Woods said, the property accommodates three to 12-month terms, and in the future, they may offer shorter leases. Residents do have the option to go month to month after their initial lease term has ended.

Preleasing has already begun, and eleven homes have been reserved so far. Woods said she does not anticipate leasing to slow down any time soon.
