This triathlete found an ideal home in The Atherton, Parañaque City

The Atherton | February 5, 2024

this-triathlete-found-an-ideal-home-in-the-atherton-paranaque-city-1707304448918 Lemon gets ready for his triathlon races by doing a lot of his pool training in The Atherton's lap pool.

Lemon Toledo loves to have an active lifestyle. A triathlete, an obstacle-course racer, a trail runner, a free-diver, a yogi, among other things, he has always been attracted to places that allow him to balance his passions and his job. He is also deeply involved in activities that support and promote the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community. 


A few years ago, he got a job in the accounting industry, located in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. To make his commute more efficient, he lived with relatives, who resided near his office. Eventually—and naturally—as he progressed through his career and his passions, he wanted to have his own place. 


“You can probably do a mini-aquathlon”


In his search for the perfect home, he found The Atherton, which conveniently stands along Dr. Arcadio Santos Ave. in Paranaque City. It didn’t take long for the athlete to decide that it was perfect for his lifestyle. 


“I decided to move here because I wanted to be far away from the noise and the bustle of the city, though it's still a city,” he says. “But it's kind of laidback. So that's one of my considerations why I moved to the southern part of Metro.” 


He adds, “Living at The Atherton is very convenient for me because going to the office takes like 15 minutes from here. I also tried to look around the place, so I have also seen a yoga studio near me, which is an advantage because I do a lot of yoga. Then, I also do a lot of running activities, and a park is also near, so I can go there when I want to do a lot of running and training.” 


this-triathlete-found-an-ideal-home-in-the-atherton-paranaque-city-1707304502247 Lemon is also happy that DMCI Homes provides the perfect pet-friendly space for his two toy poodles to thrive.

Not only that, but he also says that The Atherton compound itself has wide spaces where he can engage in different physical activities. 

“I've been using the pool most of the time because I'm doing triathlons,” he reveals. “I just recently finished the triathlon race, so I do a lot of my pool-training in our pool. I also invited my family to come over, so they enjoyed the amenities with me, like the children's pool, the basketball court. You can probably do a mini-aquathlon here because we have a running-jogging path. We could probably do a mini-swim-and-run event around the community.”

Pet-friendly too

The Atherton is developed by Quadruple A developer DMCI Homes. It features three buildings that are ready for occupancy. The Atherton is also easily accessible through other infrastructure projects, such as the C5 Southlink Expressway and the LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project, which is scheduled for completion by 2028. 


But one of the best things about his home, says Toledo, is that, like with all DMCI Homes properties, they allow his two toy poodles to live a peaceful and happy life. 


“DMCI Homes is known for being pet-friendly, so that's one of the major considerations,” he says. “Second is the space. DMCI Homes is known to have very spacious rooms, because I get to compare the space from other property developments, and DMCI Homes has far bigger spaces in terms of making sure that you have a humble space for yourself or even for a family. Then, there’s the value for money. I think more than anything else, I think I get what I paid for, like the amenities, the security, the space. It’s good value for money. It's a good investment technically.”

this-triathlete-found-an-ideal-home-in-the-atherton-paranaque-city-1707304542936 In Lemon's words, DMCI Homes is a win-win choice. You're getting excellent value for your money, especially considering the spacious living spaces.

‘Meets all requirements for a home’


As someone who likes to live with nature, Toledo loves the fact that DMCI Homes properties allow for air to circulate through the Lumiventt® Design Technology, which uses natural light even within buildings. 


When he feels like hanging out outside his home, he can go anywhere around the building to work—especially that The Atherton offers units with built-in, commercial-grade fiber internet


“I was impressed by how the Internet was because I did not get any additional provider. I used to work from home three days a week or four days a week, and it's more than enough for me.”


For those who live an active lifestyle and want to have their own home, he gives this advice: “Make sure that you know what you want and make sure that the property that you're looking for checks all those requirements. In my case, I have those requirements checked for me with DMCI Homes.”

The Atherton is one of the developments of DMCI Homes, renowned for building quality resort-inspired communities in Mega Manila, Baguio City, Boracay, and Davao City.
