The Brownstones, the new luxury townhome project within Kelly Plantation, officially broke ground May 16. This unique golf and bay view neighborhood is being developed by JGM Development, built by Chi-Mar Construction, and designed by Geoff Chick & Associates. These three local firms have a history of quality work along the Gulf Coast.  

The Brownstones at Kelly Plantation will have 23 unique “Florida Brownstones” designed to take full advantage of the bay, golf course and nature preserve views offered by this final development site within Kelly Plantation. The Brownstones are available in three and four bedroom plans, ranging in size from 2,800 to 3,100 square feet. Each home includes an open main living level with large kitchen, dining area, study, great room and a private two-car garage with golf cart parking for security, convenience, and plenty of storage. The homes will be immaculately appointed with natural stone countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, residential elevators, spacious balconies, fireplaces, nine and ten foot ceilings, a fenced backyard and more.

“The Brownstones at Kelly Plantation is a unique product designed to combine our buyer’s desire for the maintenance-free and lock and leave lifestyle you might find in a luxury condominium with the privacy and convenience of a single family home,” said Garrett McNeil of JGM Development. “We feel that it is the perfect addition to the wonderful way of life found in Kelly Plantation.”

“We are honored to be selected to build The Brownstones at Kelly Plantation,” said Marty Williams, founder and CEO of Chi-Mar Construction. “We feel a unique concept like The Brownstones will not only uphold, but enhance the prestigious reputation that Kelly Plantation has established.”
