Condominium Living has evolved
through the years. Whitney Place provides the answer for those
seeking the joy of home ownership but no longer wish the obligations
of exterior maintenance and repairs.
owners of single family homes are aware, exterior up-keep for
their home is a costly and time consuming exercise which has
long past the point of being fun and rewarding. Snow removal
and regular lawn mowing and watering is hard work and never
seems to be required at times that are convenient. Fertilizing
and weed control are expensive and further tax your free time.
At Whitney Place these routine tasks are performed by trained
professionals directed by your Condominium Corporation through
an independent management company. Each contractor employed
to carryout maintenance projects will carry their own liability
insurance and will have been diligently screened for previous
experience and work quality. Locking the door and heading south
for a week, or the winter, will be no problem for you.
When you own your own single
family home you have complete control over decorating and renovating
the interior. At Whitney Place you have these same privileges.
To protect you and all homeowners we have put in place certain
restrictions on the exterior of the buildings. For instance, exterior
renovations, additional landscaping, painting, etc. are performed
only with approval from your condominium corporation. This restriction
has been instituted to protect your investment and allows you
the opportunity to have a say in how your property may be affected.
With ownership come certain
costs which, in a condominium, are minimized by amortizing them
over the entire property. These costs are paid for through a monthly
fee levied on the various unit types. Long term building and property
issues such as roof replacement, asphalt and walkway repairs are
covered in your monthly fee further ensuring that your investment
is protected. Fire and Liability Insurance for the property and
building exterior are also covered in this monthly fee.

they have become know as, for the various model types are shown
on the model pricing sheet and include the following:
