90 Broad St. Harrisonburg Virginia

Downtown Housing

With all of the great attractions going into Downtown Harrisonburg, housing demands for the area are skyrocketing.  The Livery Building, which has 12 residential apartments, was 100% leased within 30 days of opening.  Urban Exchange and City Exchange currently boast occupancy rates of over 90%.   People want to be close to the “action” as they say, and Downtown Harrisonburg is currently the Arnold Schwarzenegger of the Valley (yes, I did google how to spell his name).

With that being said, there is a new property in an awesome location that could work well for a running man, a group of expendables,  or even twins to come together and enjoy the sounds, smells, and tastes of downtown living.   90 Broad Street features 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a covered porch and a decent sized yard (a yard in the city!  Who would have thought?!?).  And the property is located just three blocks from Court Square! So strap on your boots and get ready to become the Last Action Hero of Harrisonburg.

If you are interested in viewing the property or would like additional information, please contact Cheyenne Bisbee at cheyenne@matchboxrealty.com or by phone at 540.434.5150 x114.

277 W Bruce St. Harrisonburg

DOWNTOWN HOUSES: 277 West Bruce

Here at Matchbox Downtown, I feel like we constantly get requests for affordable housing downtown, especially recently given all of the exciting bars, restaurants, and retail opportunities coming to our downtown area.  We wanted to highlight an amazing property today that would provide very affordable, yet comfortable housing for anyone looking to be close to the action.

Built in 1930, 277 West Bruce is a classic downtown home within walking distance of downtown’s most popular venues.  The house features 8 bedrooms with 3 separate kitchens, amazing hardwood floors, and a large covered porch on a corner lot (neighbors on only one side).  This house sets up perfectly for a group of individuals to come together and recreate the sitcom Friends, just swapping out Greenwich Village for the booming metropolis of Downtown Harrisonburg.
