My wife and I like to swim. We swim for exercise and enjoyment. We also like apartment living. No mortgage and no need to replace roofs, water heaters or furnaces. Also, no grass to cut or land to scape (As I like to say it). I do not mind a few houseplants, but neither of us want to be weeding or dethatching anything. This is why we were looking at apartments in Silver Spring. They have an Olympic-size swimming pool and nicely appointed apartments with tile and really nice rooms.
They also have a 24-hour fitness center, a step-down living room, a washer and dryer in each apartment, and those appliances are full size too! We found a nice place here in Silver Spring. We like our neighbors, and we really like the huge swimming pool they have. We have found ourselves spending a lot more time on the lighted tennis court. We are playing about twice a week now. I never liked tennis before this. My wife played when she was a teenager, and she is now teaching me. I am not very good at it, but I try.
There is a small footbridge from the parking area to the door to our apartment complex. Our apartment is on the top floor at the end. We like our apartment and where it is placed in the building. We are very comfortable and will definitely be signing to renew our lease next year. This place has all that we want and nothing that we do not want. I think a lot more people would be fans of apartment living if they could find a nice place like this where they live. I have heard about apartment woes, but we have never experienced any of that. We took our time to shop around for the best apartments in Silver Spring.
