The warm hues of cast red brickwork and colonial architecture on Carlton Arms’ buildings defy Florida vernacular, yet their constancy through the years has proven to be a winning choice for our communities. The Colonial Williamsburg Design recalls traditional structural details, including low-pitched roofs, large symmetrically set windows with shutters, narrow sidelights flanking the front door and circular accent windows. In addition, our apartment homes feature large fenced patios and balconies, designed to increase living space and to celebrate the natural beauty outside our doors. This recognizable style has become an inviting open door to all of our current and future Carlton Arms’ residents.
Through years of experience we have been able to minimize building costs and control overhead expenditures through volume purchasing and sound management. Construction materials and technologies are regularly updated to assure durability and low maintenance for long term cost effectiveness. These practices create a high level of occupancy that exceeds national averages, year after year, community after community. We are able to offer our apartments at below market rates for a better product at superior locations.
With rental options that range from compact efficiency and studio apartments to spacious three-bedroom town homes, that door stays open throughout a resident’s lifetime. It is common for residents to join one of our communities in an efficiency apartment and adjust their accommodations as their careers and families change. From the 500 square foot efficiency to the 1,650 square foot 3 bedroom, 21/2 bath townhouse, a family can grow and never have to leave a Carlton Arms community. Resident retention is the ultimate goal of apartment management and many Mahaffey residents choose to live 10, 20, and even 30+ years in our apartment communities. Due to the fact that our residents are content living in a Carlton Arms community and consider their apartment as their home, we are proud that Mahaffey Properties’ turnover rate is well below the national average.
