The Downtown Blacksburg Scene

The Brownstone Condominiums are located on Main Street, between Washington and Clay Streets, in the heart of Downtown Blacksburg.  You can walk to any of the Downtown restaurants, retail shops, the library, the Lyric, the Huckleberry Trail,  and The Farmer’s Market within a few short minutes of leaving your front door – offering you a local and convenient lifestyle.

The Brownstone’s  proximity to Virginia Tech puts you within reach of everything the University has to offer the Blacksburg community.  Whether you are a graduate student, a professional, a retiree or an alumni who is looking for a home in Blacksburg, The Brownstone is the premiere Hokie location.  Sports, plays, concerts or classes – all of these and more are available to you just minutes from your doorstep.

Set amid the Blue Ridge Mountains, Blacksburg has an abundance of outdoor activities close by.  The Huckleberry Trail begins at the library in Downtown Blacksburg and continues through shaded residential areas and on to extended views of the Tech campus and on to surrounding farm properties complete with grazing cows and sheep.  The Trail continues all the way to the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg.  You can walk, run or cycle the trail with ease.  Hiking, mountain biking, river rafting and fishing all surround Blacksburg as well.  You will never run out of something to do.

The Brownstone’s Downtown location puts you just minutes from everything Blacksburg has to offer.
