Luxury homes come in all shapes and sizes, from modern architectural marvels to classically designed estates, with each home reflecting the specific tastes of its owner.

Spa bathrooms

Spa bathrooms aim to provide a world-class spa experience right in your own home. It’s a place to relax and feel pampered. Typical features include a rain shower, radiant heated floors, towel warmers, and high-tech toilets. Other bathrooms have a soaking tub or Jacuzzi facing a large window with gorgeous views.

The finishes for spa bathrooms are equally luxurious with marble, quartz, or granite. Some bathrooms are designed with natural and eco-friendly materials incorporated throughout the space to create that spa-like atmosphere.

Expansive master closets

Unlike standard closets, master closets found in luxury homes have amenities such as customized vanities, automated lights, full-length mirrors, and comfortable seating. Closet islands are made to store small items like watches, jewelry, and lingerie. Some also have beverage stations for coffee or wine.

These master closets are spacious and easy to modify so they can suit the specific needs of the homeowner. Custom solutions include a dedicated shoe system or automated racks for dresses and suits.

Private fitness center

Private fitness centers give homeowners the opportunity to stay fit and healthy without leaving the comfort of their home. Going above and beyond what the typical home gym offers, these private gyms don’t just have exercise machines and weights.

They are equipped with wireless speakers, a television, and special equipment that caters to an individual’s preferred sport or workout like an indoor lap pool, dedicated yoga studio, and the like.

Entertainment areas

An entertainment area can mean different things to different homeowners. Its sole purpose is to give you a place to have fun with friends and family.

In some luxury homes, an entertainment area may consist of a typical media room or home theater. In others, it may be a gaming center filled with classic arcade and video games. For those with more specific tastes, homes can have indoor basketball courts and bowling alleys. There is sure to be a luxury home out there that fits a luxury buyer’s home entertainment needs. Or, consider customizing a home to suit your preference.

Seamless indoor/outdoor living

Luxury isn’t confined indoors. A home that seamlessly blends indoor and outdoor spaces is a definite draw. Extending the luxurious appointments indoors to outdoor spaces like patios, backyards, decks, or a private garden makes the home even more sumptuous than it already is.

Think of an open concept living room that opens to an outdoor area equipped with an outdoor kitchen, spa, fire pit, pool, and comfortable seating. Or envision spacious balconies and terraces complete with tables and chairs for al fresco dining.

Masterfully crafted finishes and high-end details

The details are everything when it comes to luxury homes. All finishes from the trim to the décor should be of the highest quality. Every detail counts when it comes to the finish of a luxury home.
