Living in one of Ashby Ponds’ most sought-after apartment homes, Paula Rivera finds that her Radcliffe floor plan provides comfortable living space, an enviable kitchen, and a second bedroom and bathroom for overnight guests. “I am very happy,” she says.

“I absolutely love my apartment home. It’s just beautiful,” says Paula Rivera of her extra-large, two-bedroom, two-bath Radcliffe apartment home at Ashby Ponds, an Erickson Living community in Ashburn, Va.

This month marks Paula’s fourth year in her home, and she’s as happy as ever. 

“There are so many reasons why I love the Radcliffe,” she says. “I have the most beautiful kitchen, which is wider than most, a large master bedroom and bathroom with shower, and a wonderful living room. I also love the 11 windows that give me sun in the morning and late afternoon. My plants are doing so well!” 

“The Radcliffe is one of our most popular and best-selling apartment homes,” says Ashby Ponds Director of Sales Holly Henderson. “It provides an extra-large living area and second bedroom, perfect for creating a unique living space, while removing the burdens of home upkeep and maintenance. Instead, residents can spend quality time enjoying the numerous amenities and services available at Ashby Ponds.” 

Making a house a home

In lieu of spending time and money on the upkeep of a big house, Paula finds that the Radcliffe is perfectly sized to suit her needs. The large living space and second bedroom provide ample space to entertain guests and host overnight visitors. 

“I use the second bedroom as a TV room,” she says. “It’s a great place to relax after a busy day. It’s also perfect for visitors. There’s a sofa bed in the room, which my daughter enjoys when she visits from Florida.”

Paula also chose to convert her large living room/dining area into one, large living room.  

“It’s a very pretty space that I like to use for guests,” she says. “As I tell my friends, my house is always open.”

Living large

When not at home, Paula keeps a busy social calendar as a member of the Red Robin View Penthouse Club. 

“Everyone with a fourth-floor apartment is a member,” she says. “We get together regularly and enjoy each others’ company. Many of us play together on a bocce team, and once a month, we share a wine and cheese happy hour and dinner together in the private dining room. There are so many things to do that if I did everything, I’d never be home. That would be a shame because I love my beautiful home.”

Leader of the pack

“Everyone living at Ashby Ponds enjoys unbeatable amenities, services, and a wide range of activities,” says Henderson. “And at the end of the day, they have beautiful apartments to come home to.” 

Henderson says that as the community continues to plan for new residence buildings, they listen to both current and prospective residents to ensure they provide the homes people want to the most. 

“Time and time again, the Radcliffe is on the top of that list,” she says. “The extra-large living space coupled with a bright kitchen and large second bedroom secures its place as a fan favorite.”

Henderson encourages anyone interested in seeing the Radcliffe in person to schedule an appointment. 

“I lived in two different condos before deciding to move to Ashby Ponds,” says Paula. “This is, by far, the happiest I have been in a long time.”
