Verona offers the “good life” to its residents Like many residents at Verona, Judy Marturano had had enough of caring for her large lawn, shoveling snow and caring for a big house. She wanted a simpler lifestyle, in a comfortable home, and she found it when she moved to Verona in November 2014. “I was an empty nester, shoveling a double driveway and part of a cul-de-sac!” exclaimed Judy, age 68, who purchased a 1,350 square foot, two bedroom condo in the Manors Building at Verona. “I much prefer taking part in many of the great activities here, including my two favorites ‘Women Who W(h)ine’ and the singles’ ‘Hamburger Quest’. It’s a great group of people who live here, in a great location. I love it.” Mike and Linda Mabry, both age 53, moved to Verona last April. They had lived in Colorado Springs for 20 years, and Mike had been commuting to Denver every day for work. Once Linda had the opportunity to work from home, they made the decision to move closer to Denver. “I passed Verona almost every day on my way to work, and from what I could see, I really liked it,” said Mike, who said he and Linda looked at a lot of places, but decided on Verona because of the great selection of townhomes. “We’re in a great location, with a fabulous view and easy access to bike trails and parks. Verona was easily the best value and the best fit for our lifestyle.” Verona also fit Thomas and Corrine Hendricks. The couple (Tom is 58 and Corrine is 54), moved to Verona 2 ½ years ago, when they purchased one of the Albero homes. They moved there from Highlands Ranch so they could fully enjoy their retired life. “We like to travel, and really wanted a lock-and-leave situation, where we could take vacations and not have to worry about yardwork,” said Corrine. “We love being in a single level home, and really enjoy the neighborhood, our close access to the Highline Canal and great views. This is a tremendously friendly, quiet and nice neighborhood.” If you’d like to live in Verona, there are three home designs to choose from, including The Albero, which features a two-story foyer, three bedrooms and baths, a great room with stone fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, spa-like master bath Mike and Linda Mabry.
