DE PA R T M E N T: C OM M UNI T Y SP O T L IGH T The Preserve at Longleaf: HEALTHY LIVING in a LUSH LANDSCAPE BY MARY LOU JAY R esearch has shown that living closer to green space can promote good physical and mental health by reducing stress levels. The Preserve at Longleaf apartment community offers that near connection to nature while providing easy access to shopping areas, restaurants, the beach, and other amenities. Built in 2005, the Preserve at Longleaf is owned and managed by Remi Properties, a local family business. The community's 298 homes on 25 acres are surrounded by untouched natural wetlands.

"Even if you have an upstairs apartment, you have your own door and your own set of interior stairs." said Lauren Hendry, property manager. "It doesn't feel like you're in a mass of apartments; it looks more like a townhouse community." The wide variety of floor plans and amenities for the one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments gives residents the opportunity to select a unit that fits their needs and their budgets. All of the ground-floor units are wheelchair accessible. Some two- and three-bedroom units have attached garages; renters of other units-including one-bedroom units- can opt for non-attached garages located in the same building, detached garages, and small storage units. Ground-floor units with open patios and upstairs homes with screened porches offer great views of the lake or wetlands. The one-bedroom floor plans average 748 square feet. Two-bedroom apartments, available in four basic floor plans with several variations, range in size from 1,012 to 1,138 square feet. Three-bedroom homes vary from 1,307 to 1,355 square feet. The apartments' unique design features include nine-foot ceilings, designer lighting, and large windows that provide an http://www.faahq.org
