9 Popular Amenities to Look For in Your Next Luxury Apartment

Are you ready to find your dream luxury apartment and enjoy the maintenance-free lifestyle? Luxury apartments go above and beyond your average apartment by offering renters a variety of high-end amenities, such as private garages, pet-friendly options, and more. Read on for a breakdown of which 9 popular amenities you should look for, and why Rivers Ledge Apartments is the perfect luxury apartment community to live in.

A Private Garage

Free on-site parking is a perk of many luxury apartment communities, but what if you could have a private garage to protect your car? In Upstate New York, having a private garage is especially convenient during winter as it means your vehicle will remain free of all that snow and ice. This is one of the reasons why every luxury apartment at Rivers Ledge comes with a private garage just for you. Be sure to keep private garages in mind during your luxury apartment search.

Pet-Friendly Units

Renting a pet-friendly apartment is essential if you’re a dog or cat owner. Luckily, some luxury apartment communities welcome pets as long as you follow the established guidelines. Take the time to research the pet policy for the apartment you’re interested in, as well as any other pet-friendly amenities. For example, our Recreation Building (coming spring 2023) will offer a pet wash station for residents to use.

Private Balconies & Patios

When you’re looking to get a breath of fresh air and relax, nothing beats having access to a private balcony or patio. You can customize it to your liking with some plants and decor, grab a seat and sip your favorite drink, or just soak up the surroundings. An outdoor space is the perfect addition to a luxury apartment, which is why our apartments include either a patio or balcony.

Modern Appliances

Modern appliances are a must if you’re planning to upgrade or downsize to a luxury apartment, especially stainless steel appliances, which are durable and enhance the look of the space. Kitchens are also the heart of the home, so you’ll want one that is fully equipped for all of your cooking needs.

Central Air Conditioning

You want your luxury apartment to be a comfortable place to stay, so when summer comes around, make sure you have central air conditioning. While window units can help cool a particular room, central air conditioning will keep your entire apartment at the ideal temperature, even when it reaches 100 degrees outdoors.

Spacious Closets

Do you have a lot of clothes and belongings that you’d like to keep organized at your next apartment? Consider the type of closet that’ll be in the bedrooms. A spacious closet with features such as shelves and racks will make it easy to store and find all of your shirts, coats, and shoes.

In-Unit Laundry

One of the most sought-after luxury apartment amenities is in-unit laundry. Instead of having to bring your dirty laundry to another floor or building, you’ll have your own washer and dryer available when you need them. Here at Rivers Ledge, all of our apartments include a full-size washer and dryer for your convenience.

Electric Car Charging Stations

Over the past few years, electric cars have continued to grow in popularity, with more people making the transition. They are the vehicle of the future, and if you own one, then you’ll want a place to charge it that’s easy to access. Look for an apartment community like Rivers Ledge that has electric car charging stations on-site, so you’ll always be ready for your next drive.

Recreation Building

Finally, a major advantage of living in a luxury apartment is that you’ll be part of a larger community filled with property amenities, such as a Recreation Building. Open to residents, these buildings offer multiple activities to enjoy like sports and exercise facilities that will help you maintain an active lifestyle. Our Recreation Building at Rivers Ledge will be opening spring 2023 and feature a modern fitness room, a game room, a state-of-the-art sports simulator, and the aforementioned pet wash station.
