After many years of living in a large single family home, my husband and I one day realized that it was becoming increasingly more difficult to care for our residence, nor did we need the amount of space we once required. That realization, of course, led to the next question of where we could live without sacrificing the friendly camaraderie we’d grown accustomed to in our then current neighborhood. Enter the Vasiles.

Their gift to the city of Bristol and to all the residents at Apple Grove is a beautiful, peaceful and carefree place to call home in a community of caring, friendly residents.

We were very fortunate to acquire an apartment in this wonderful place and Sammy missed no detail in creating efficient and comfortable living quarters for the 50+ age group of residents. From the beautifully tiled entryway, one can gaze down the hallway and view the glistening hardwood floors that extend throughout the entire unit.

Upon proceeding, a large bathroom comes into view that includes shower seats for those who need them. Efficient and elegant stainless steel appliances made cooking our holiday meals a true joy with ample storage available in our huge basement and second floor room that also includes a second full bathroom.

Last but not least, each unit also features a private deck area where we can grill or just relax while soaking up the sun.I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Sammy and his family for providing the residents of Apple Grove with this wonderful place to call home and for their constant good cheer and willingness to be of assistance. Apple Grove is truly an asset to the city of Bristol and is my personal piece of heaven.
