When my parents told me they wanted to retire to Denver, I was so excited. They have lived in Maine for their entire lives, so I didn’t get to see them as often as I would like. I work for a Denver newspaper, so I couldn’t live anywhere other than Denver. They told me they wanted to spend more time with their grandchildren as well as my wife and myself, and I was over the moon about it. My mom had done a search on luxury apartments in Denver CO, and she asked me if I would check out the Gables for them.

I didn’t need to do that though, because I had first hand knowledge of the luxury complex. The editor of the paper has an apartment there, and my wife and I have been to several dinner parties in his penthouse apartment. To say that it is a luxury apartment almost seems like an understatement. I knew that my parents, both retiring doctors, would absolutely love it there for a number of reasons. The location is perfect for them, as it is within ten minutes of my own house.

It is maintenance free for them, which is why they wanted an apartment over a house. They did not want to have to take care of a lawn in the summer or shoveling snow in the winter. They also wanted to have everything there, like the fitness center and some shops and restaurants that they both enjoy. I looked at some of the floor plans that are offered there after they told me they want a two bedroom in case our daughters wanted to stay with them some nights, and I found a great apartment that has a gorgeous view of the downtown area. They are moving here in a couple of months, and we all cannot wait!
