Here are some must-have amenities that will make your apartment a truly luxurious sanctuary.
1. Washer and Dryer
Lugging your clothes back and forth from a laundromat adds another time-consuming chore to your already lengthy to-do list. An in-home washer and dryer provides convenience and lets you multitask while doing laundry.
Having a garage means you never have to worry about finding a parking space. Your car is also protected from the elements, and you have additional storage for items that may be awkward to keep inside your apartment.
3. Private Entry
This one may never have occurred to you, but it's actually one of the more desirable and hard-to-find amenities. With a private entry, you and your guests can come and go, free from curious eyes, and you're never disturbed by others walking back and forth in a shared hallway.
4. Walk-In Closets
The words "too much closet space" don't exist in anyone's vocabulary. A walk-in closet is more than just a place to keep your wardrobe. With a few accessories it can add storage and serve as a complete dressing area.
5. Central Heat and Air
When average temperatures range from a low of 8°F in January to a high of 83°F in July, indoor climate control in the Twin Cities can be a never-ending struggle. Central heat and air allows you to set and maintain a temperature that's most comfortable for you, no matter what time of year.
6. 24-Hour Fitness Center
Good health doesn't take time off, and you don't have to either with an on-site, 24-hour fitness center. Whether you want cardio work, strength training or yoga, it's accessible whenever you need it.
Pets provide loyal companionship and unconditional love. Even if you don't have a pet now, it's nice to know that you have the option whenever you're ready.
8. On-Site Management
Having on-site management just steps away from your apartment gives you peace of mind knowing that issues like maintenance requests and package delivery are handled promptly and cheerfully.
