Downsizers often downsize not because they no longer need all the space, although it is one of the key reasons, they choose to downsize because they want to experience hassle-free strata living.
What do we mean by that? For those who have lived in the single detached homes, you know the stresses that come with it – tending to your gardens, mowing the lawn, paying someone to clear the gutters, and now in the winter months, shoveling your driveway and front lawn.
According to Metrohealth.org, “Shoveling, even pushing a heavy snowblower, can cause sudden increase in blood pressure and heart rate, and the cold air can cause constriction of the blood vessel and decrease oxygen to the heart. All these work in concert to increase the work of the heart and trigger a potentially fatal heart attack.”
A study in the US looking at 15 years of data was reported by BBC News and showed that during that time span, there were 1,647 fatalities associated with cardiac-related injuries from shoveling snow.
Many are switching over to a strata living lifestyle where they no longer need to tend to their own gardens or shovel snow. At Westbury, you are able to continue residing in the prestigious and heritage-rich Arbutus neighbourhood while enjoying the many perks of strata living. With an underground parkade and a designated parkade elevator, you will arrive safely to your front door via the cleared pathway in the courtyard during the winter months. You won’t have to lift a finger (except to press the elevator button).
The designated elevator, along with many other unique design features, make Westbury a truly one-of-a-kind offering in prestigious Arbutus Ridge. Experience hassle-free strata living today and visit westburyliving.com to register for more information.
