Although the definition of luxury varies with the market, it generally refers to the top 10% of the market in price. The definition of luxury goes beyond high-end interior finishes such as professional kitchens and customized closets. Buyers of luxury homes want abodes that speak to them by offering prestige, exclusivity, and enduring fantasy.
Custom architectural design stands out as the most recognizable feature in luxury homes. The interior and exterior spaces become works of art that resonate with discerning buyers. Using protected design methodologies, an architect will create a well-designed structure that becomes an inspirational framework to stimulate, calm, and provide security all at the same time.
Bespoke craftsmanship is rare because it’s expensive. Artisans in the medias of wood, stone, and glass work in concert to create spaces that are custom fitted for maximum usability and connectedness. The result is a home with extraordinary detail that ages gracefully for generations.
While many homes have features that are considered luxury amenities, such as media rooms and indoor pools, the best homes are humanistic with areas for personal pursuits such as hobbies, fitness, and culture. Smart homes enable a home to become an automated cocoon of comfort and convenience. These are some of the features that I consider before using the word ‘luxury’ in my listings.
