Downsizing is a major life decision that requires a significant amount of thought. If you’re weighing the pros and cons, you should know that while leaving a home and neighborhood you may have lived in for many years can be difficult, there are plenty of benefits of living in a luxury apartment community you’ll get to enjoy. Read on to learn more about five of the major benefits, then contact us to schedule a tour of Rivers Ledge’s luxury apartments!
1. In-Unit Amenities
They’re not called “luxury apartments” for nothing! Every unit at Rivers Ledge includes a private garage, a full size washer and dryer, and a private balcony or patio, so you won’t have to compromise on any of the major amenities you may have had at your previous home. The kitchens are finished with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, soft closing cabinets, and even under-cabinet lights. The living areas are spacious and feature hardwood vinyl floors, California closets, and central air. When it comes to technology, each unit features both keyless door and intercom entry, cable, and high-speed internet.
2. Apartment Community Amenities
While your brand new apartment will feel like home in no time, the wider apartment community has its own set of amenities to take advantage of. Rivers Ledge residents have easy access to the Mohawk-Hudson Bike Trail for walking, running, or biking, plus on-site green spaces where they can relax, read, or simply enjoy being outdoors. Next year, the recreation building – with its fitness center, game room, golf simulator, and pet wash station – will open for resident use, and the outdoor pool will be ready next summer. The Clubhouse can be reserved for private events, and residents can rest easy knowing that the entire property is under the watchful eye of security cameras.
3. Friendly Neighbors
Speaking of the apartment community, one of the major benefits of living at Rivers Ledge is the other people who live here. While you’ll have your own space and privacy inside your unit, it will be easy to make friendly connections while you’re lounging by the pool, cooking in the grilling area, or working out in the fitness center.
4. Low Maintenance
If you’ve spent years shoveling snow, mowing your lawn, and pulling weeds, the low maintenance aspect of a luxury apartment community is probably one of the biggest perks. You won’t have to worry about any of those chores here at Rivers Ledge, and waste removal is also available for a minimal fee. Additionally, our maintenance team is here to help with any issues you may be experiencing in your unit, and we have a dedicated line for after-hours maintenance emergencies or lockouts.
5. An Unbeatable Location
Our particular luxury apartment community is located on the Mohawk River in Niskayuna, just a short drive from Schenectady and other Capital Region hotspots, like Latham, Clifton Park, and Saratoga Springs. Whether you want to go out to eat, shopping, golfing, or to a museum, you can find all of those things and more nearby. Plus, it’s easy to get to I-87 from Rivers Ledge, making road trips to Boston, New York City, Vermont, or western New York a breeze.
