Large homes, lush lawns, and a slower pace of life have been and always will be advantages of suburban living. However, the suburbs are not the only place where such benefits exist. If your job’s in the city or you’re just looking for a change of scenery, you may want to consider what many home buyers are already realizing – that you can have the same advantages of living in the suburbs within city living!
With higher gas prices and longer commutes in traffic, it makes sense to think about living closer to your work. Also, being within walking distance of most stores and activities is a delightful experience. Residents can easily walk or take public transportation to restaurants, museums, art galleries, entertainment, historic sites, and cultural venues. Additionally, a community in the city may offer walking trails with spots for picnicking and barbecuing.
Some buildings offer residents breathtaking views of scenic cityscapes or waterfronts that rival most views found in suburban communities.
Thriving Urban Social Scene
Many buildings include a child’s playroom and a tot lot with playground equipment for kids to socialize. And it isn’t just the kids that get social time. Many upscale urban communities offer a Residents’ Lounge that includes anything from a bar to a garden. And at some residences, the only transportation you’ll need is the elevator in your building – which could take you to a resort-style pool, a sun deck, or a rooftop terrace with an outdoor fireplace.
City Living Amenities
You’ll find common amenities in most city residences, such as concierge service, fully equipped fitness centers, and covered parking. Other top-shelf amenities might include a well-appointed library, a traditional wine cellar with private wine lockers, and personal on-site storage. To make life easier for hardworking homeowners, many urban communities offer business centers.
