When trying to find their dream home, Adams and Rachel Bragg knew they wanted something as close as possible to owning their own house without inconveniences like lawn care or maintenance. They stumbled upon a rental community in Irondale that checked all the boxes.

“The Heights was this perfect little community right in the middle of Irondale that was all of the things we were looking for.”

Rachel Bragg, resident, The Heights

The Braggs have been calling The Heights home for almost two months now and still finding new things they love about the neighborhood. Both echo each other’s thoughts saying how exceptional the entire community is. They coin the atmosphere as “too good to be true,” until they went to check it out for themselves.

“So many people were telling me how incredible The Heights was, but the second I came out here I realized that conversations do not do it justice. The fact that they’ve put this culmination of ideas together to make it a resident-focused area while giving great amenities for everyone is mind-blowing.”

Adams Bragg, resident, The Heights

  • Controlled gated community

The location

The Heights is conveniently located at the intersection of Old Leeds Road and Grants Mill Road—just minutes from I-459. Nestled in the heart of the upcoming redevelopment in Irondale, residents can look forward to new businesses coming soon and a roundabout allowing for enhanced traffic flow toward the interstate.

Rachel explained that one of her favorite parts of living in this community is the autonomy of having your own home.

It’s close to the things we love to do but just a little bit further away from other apartment complexes so you have a bigger degree of privacy than you would at those places and I really appreciate that.”

What makes any house a home is its community. The atmosphere, people, animals, you name it and The Heights does it well.

Know of a complex that puts snacks in your mailbox? The Braggs explained that one day when the power went out, The Heights’ staff put sour punch straws in each mailbox with an apology note attached.

“They focus so much on the little things here and that matters to residents. Yes, everything externally looks incredible but when you experience it internally you realize how much they care.”

Adams Bragg, resident, The Heights

Rachel agreed with Adams saying how welcoming the neighbors are as well. They both expressed how walking their dog through the neighborhood typically introduces you to five or more friendly faces.
