As we get older the realization sets in that time is precious. Many retirees ask themselves, “Do I really want to spend my free time mowing the lawn, shoveling snow, and maintaining a large home?” Another common thought is, “Why should I heat, cool, clean, and pay taxes on a large home, when I really just use three rooms?” If you have had those thoughts, The Harbour Towers Luxury Condominium Complex could be the answer you have been waiting for.
The Towers is a 54-unit complex that has many amenities right in the building, including a three-in-one year-round swimming spa, a gym, a pub, a theater room, outdoor barbeque area, a restaurant, indoor secured parking, and much more.
Waterview and Cityview units are super energy-efficient, and offer very low condo fees as well as tax abatement for five years. Some residents pay less than $60 a month for heat, hot water, water, and sewer. Luxury units are one-level living at its finest: radiant heat floors, hot water on demand, granite counter tops, tray ceilings, and many customizations are available including walk-in tiled showers with benches. Perfect for aging in place, most units are easily handicap adaptable and have an open floor plan for today’s lifestyle. Units are available that will accommodate a live-in aid.
The Towers is a pet-friendly building, with an indoor dog walking area and dog parks nearby. Many residents walk their dogs down and enjoy the beautiful water views at Fort Trumbull.
The Towers is not age restrictive, however; it lends itself as the perfect place to enjoy your retirement. Why sit isolated in a big home in a suburb, when you can enjoy a sense of community and easily walk to shopping, restaurants, art galleries, theaters, marinas, festivals, concerts, and many local events. Many of our residents are actively involved in the art and music scene in New London. In fact, some do not even want to keep a car. If you choose to bring your car, there is an indoor garage and residents have the option of getting a personal garage with radiant heat and storage space for all those things you don’t want to give up when downsizing to a condo lifestyle.
The building is secured by a FOB entry system, and has plenty of guest parking. A mail center, and private storage areas round out the amenities.
Another unique feature of The Towers is that they offer a trade program where you trade in your current home for your new home. You have back-to-back closings, and leave anything you do not want behind at your current home; no cleaning, no showings, just a simple transition to your new life. Downsizing can be a daunting task but the team of people at the Towers can assist with the entire move from start to finish. They can help plan your new living space, arrange your move, and offer just about any service to make your move a simple one. Another feature offered for those over age 62 is the reverse mortgage purchase. Use your current equity in your home to have no mortgage payment for life. There are financial advisors who can explain how this program works. Many residents are living at The Towers currently with no mortgage payments at all.
