Five-Star Luxury Apartment Amenities

9-Foot Vaulted Ceilings

At first glance, the height of the ceiling in your apartment might not seem like that big of a deal. However, studies have shown that higher ceilings can make interior spaces look bigger than they are. While many apartments with outdated construction have flat, 8-foot ceilings, we are happy to say that our units have vaulted, 9-foot ceilings here at The Legends. Beyond making your apartment feel more spacious, you will actually have extra room overhead to accommodate tall furniture like four-poster beds, bookcases, and entertainment centers.

Oversized Closets

An inherent lack of closet space is one of the biggest concerns for many apartment dwellers. This is not a surprise given that some apartments might only have a single closet that seems no bigger than a matchbox for the entire unit. As you are taking your luxury apartment virtual tour, pay close attention to how much closet space each unit offers. The luxury apartments at The Legends boast some of the most spacious closets in town. That means you’ll never have to try to figure out how to integrate your storage items into your apartment’s decor because your closets are too small.


If you have lived in Hickory for long enough to experience a winter season here, then you know that average low temperatures can dip down into the 30s and sometimes even into the 20s. A fireplace might not be on your list of must-have amenities, but you’ll be glad you have one when the cold weather settles in for the season. As you take our virtual apartment tours, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for a fireplace. Several of the units at The Legends include a fireplace, and if this is an amenity you’d like to have, just let us know and we’ll be happy to help make it happen when possible.

Large Patios and Balconies

Just as the weather can be chilling during the winter in Hickory, it can also be unbelievably gorgeous in the spring, summer, and fall. There is no better way to enjoy the mild temperatures and abundant sunshine during these times of year than by hanging out with your friends on your patio or balcony. However, if your new apartment has a patio or balcony that is too small, you might find your outdoor entertainment options limited. As you take your luxury apartment virtual tour of The Legends, you’ll be pleased to see that each of our apartments comes with either a large patio or a large balcony to help you make the most of your time outdoors.

Incredible Fitness Center

This is one amenity that is on nearly everyone’s checklist, and for good reason. Having a conveniently located fitness center makes it easier than ever to keep up with your health and fitness goals, which is something virtually everyone could use some help with every now and then. In addition to looking for a state-of-the-art fitness center during your virtual apartment tours, keep an eye out for other fitness amenities also. As you tour The Legends, you’ll note that we have two resort-style swimming pools, two tennis courts, a basketball court, and a volleyball court in addition to our incredible fitness center.

Covered Parking

Residents love the mild climate that we experience most of the year here in Hickory. However, there are times we experience severe thunderstorms and other types of inclement weather that could damage your vehicle if it is parked out in the open. It is times like these when apartment renters appreciate having covered parking, and many individuals place having a garage high on their list of priorities as they are looking for a new apartment. We are happy to offer garages here at The Legends. Not only will a garage help protect your car from weather damage, but it will also ensure it is safe and secure when you aren’t driving it.

Entertainment Space

Last but not least, you want to be sure that the apartment community you are thinking about moving into has some kind of entertainment space for you to enjoy with any guests that come to visit you. Whether it is a clubhouse that you can rent out for gatherings or some other type of communal space, this is a desirable benefit that luxury apartment communities in Hickory should offer. As you tour The Legends, you’re likely to notice our state-of-the-art theater room that is available for residents to use. Complete with an extra wide screen, surround sound, and other essential features, our theater room is the perfect spot to have a night in with a few of your closest friends or family members.
