“We both feel like we are in our 20s.”
The words belong to Michel and Susan Winkelstein, who traded suburban homeownership for city apartment living. They tell the story of the successful move in an article that captures an exciting nationwide trend, “More Older Americans Becoming Renters.”
After years, if not decades, of paying mortgages, mowing lawns, cleaning gutters, worrying about rising property taxes, and spending untold amounts on house upkeep and homeowner’s insurance, many empty nesters yearn for a more carefree lifestyle.
The Winkelsteins again: “It’s nice to have freedom.”
A Gated Apartment Community to Love
That’s when Altitude Apartments enter the picture. If you enjoy the lush surroundings of suburbia but miss the vibrancy of a city, you will love this gated apartment community in Malden, just minutes from downtown Boston. Altitude offers a unique combination of benefits: a secluded setting, stunning city views, first-class amenities, and restaurants and entertainment at your doorstep.
Think of Altitude as your full-service retreat, perched on a hill, yet so close to the buzzle below. Susan Winkelstein, for one, says every day in her centrally located apartment feels like a vacation. Movies, concerts, dinners, and café outings no longer require advance planning and a tedious road trip. In Altitude’s case, you can make a spur-of-the-moment decision and be there within minutes.
Discover Benefits of Renting an Apartment
Concerns of the past – When do we need to paint the house? Who should fix that leaky faucet? – give way to peace of mind.
Pick a cabana by Altitude’s expansive pool and relish your new lifestyle. If you feel like working up a sweat, taking an on-demand yoga class, watching a movie, or meeting with business associates, simply head to Club Altitude, the brand new amenity center.
Then there are other perks that you will appreciate, like the spacious walk-in closets and generously sized floor plans. Each apartment has been, or is being, meticulously renovated and includes everything from granite countertops and stainless steel appliances to designer vanities and hardwood floors in the living areas.
And who doesn’t love a large balcony? From your outdoor spot, you have unobstructed views of the Boston skyline or the Atlantic Ocean, depending on which side you choose to live.
A growing number of empty nesters have discovered the benefits of renting an apartment. At Altitude, we can’t wait to help you make your next move.
