Not Your Typical
Retirement Community

Brickstone by St. John's is the very latest expression of the St. John's commitment to embrace living in the Rochester, NY, region. It extends the St. John's philosophy of living and growing through meaningful relationships. Brickstone by St. John's is not your typical retirement community.

Brickstone offers a lifestyle choice for active, independent seniors who want to move beyond home ownership and maintenance. When you become part of the St. John's family, you gain primary access to all that we offer.

What is New Urbanism?

Everything nearby. That, in a nutshell, is new urbanism. Its goal is to bring people and resources closer together. It is both intimate and efficient. Access is not limited at Brickstone. Neighbors are not only welcome to visit, they're invited. Sidewalks lead in, out, and around our whole senior community. We believe that makes for a better neighborhood.

That's the vision of Brickstone.

No Entrance Fee

At Brickstone, you'll enjoy living without the burden of home ownership or large entrance fees. Your rental is strictly on a monthly basis. If your plans change, just let us know 30 days beforehand.

Healthy Living

A central focus of the Brickstone retirement community experience is the abundance of paths, trails, and walks. You can enjoy the many trees, ponds, and wetlands right on the property. You'll often see deer and other wildlife on your walk. You're just down the hill from Highland Park, a Frederick Olmstead creation, and home of the world-famous Lilac Festival.

See You at the Square

Central to our Brickstone neighborhood is the Village Square, which combines retail shops and open space in which neighbors can gather to meet, eat, converse or simply relax.

Looking Out

Whether it's a patio, porch, or balcony, every townhouse, bungalow, and apartment provides you with some personal outside space to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful view.

Environmentally Friendly

A popular word today is sustainability. It's a way to look at how efficiently people use resources to minimize impact on the environment. At Brickstone, our entire design has efficiency in mind, such as using Energy Star appliances throughout. Sustainable measures have been part of the design through NYSERDA certification.

Finish with a Flourish

Brickstone offers you a choice of tasteful finishes. These include stainless steel appliances, Silestone® countertops, cathedral ceilings, full size washers and dryers, and radiant floor heating.
