Why it’s for sale With retirement on the horizon, the couple say they want to move to Florida. Dan, 62, is a financial adviser for Thrivent Financial. Sharon, 58, a flight attendant for Delta, can commute.

Built as a legal two-family home, this corner-unit town house is in Park Row, a nonage-restricted community loaded with amenities, including security patrol at night. Starting with the ground-level, one-bedroom apartment, it has its own mailbox, meter and stackable washer and dryer, says Sharon. The layout includes an eat-in kitchen and a living-dining area with sliding glass doors to a back deck. The couple’s space includes a living room, a dining room, a new eat-in kitchen, an office, two bedrooms and three bathrooms. The master bathroom was recently updated. The finished basement is great for entertaining. Of the kitchen and community amenities, she says:

“It’s on the second floor with windows. I love sitting there looking out seeing the green lawn below and watching the birds in the trees — it’s ever so peaceful. ... Park Row has three swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, a kiddie playground, a fitness center and clubhouse.”
