Why it’s for sale: Errico, 66, executive director and co-founder of Strength for Life, a nonprofit that provides free exercise classes and wellness retreats to cancer patients, says she will be retiring and moving to South Carolina.

It’s a tossup for Errico as to whether it’s her unit or the community that she loves most. She shares:

“I bought this based on the master suite. It has a vaulted ceiling, and it’s light and airy and the bathroom is spalike. It’s wonderful to soak in that Jacuzzi tub. . . .

"You get so much here. There are tennis courts, a pool, a boccie court and a shuffleboard court. The clubhouse has an exercise room and pool and pingpong tables. It’s like a mini resort here. There’s a lot of activity, but you don’t have to participate if you don’t want. Women gather for mahjong and men play poker. . . .

"I have an L-shaped living room and dining room combination. It has a good flow for entertaining. I have a large dining room table, and even when it’s expanded, I still have room. I put in a patio with pavers and beautiful, wide, rounded steps. You just step out of the dining room and have this gorgeous pond view to enjoy. It’s very private and peaceful.

"There’s a full unfinished basement, and the driveway can hold two cars. When I have company, I park in the garage and there’s still space for two more cars. I love this unit. It’s really bright and lovely.”
