Character and convenience meet at the The Homes at McCants. Originally home to Fannie C McCants Elementary School, built in 1931, the building has been transformed into 11 townhomes in the historic Earlewood neighborhood (read: central to Main Street, Bull Street redevelopment, and the Vista).

The property maintains the elegant historic feel with high ceilings, exposed brick, and restored hardwood floors, and has been adapted to today’s living with modern kitchens + bathrooms, energy-efficient windows, and 13 SEER (read: Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) HVAC units.

The townhomes feature one- and two-bedroom floor plans, a three bedroom unit as well as two-bedrooms with a studio/office option. Each resident gets two designated parking spaces, with 11 additional parking spaces available for visitors and guests.

Nine of the townhomes are now for sale and ready to be called home. Learn more.*
