Athertyn Pursuits Spring-Summer 2017: Athertyn Insider featuring Barb and Nick Altiero




With three grown sons living across the country, Barb and Nick Altiero were ready to
from their 3,000-square-foot family home along with their two dogs, Shi and Syd.


What was your first impression of Athertyn?
Barb: When we walked in, we both thought ‘this is the place.’

Nick: Athertyn has everything we had back home, and now we don’t have to take care of it.

Which home floor plan did you choose?

Nick: We chose a Clairemont. The common living space is open and modernized — it’s actually more spacious than our colonial house, which was very boxed off.

Tell us about some of the experiences you’re sharing.

Barb: We enjoy playing on the Athertyn pickle ball team, using the fitness center and swimming in the heated pool. We also go to many of the social events at the Clubhouse.

How else is living at Athertyn better than your last home?

Nick: My favorite thing is that I get to take the trash out and get the mail and newspaper in my socks!

Has the maintenance-free lifestyle given you more time to pursue any favorite pastimes?
Barb: We go to a lot of concerts; music is our hobby.
Our front
hallway is lined with framed music posters.
Has anything surprised you?

Nick: Our old neighborhood had a lot of turnover with young families moving in. The new friendships we’ve made here… that’s turned out to be a real treasure.
