Luxury Home Trends for 2014

by Bokka Admin

The Southwest Florida luxury real estate market is at its strongest pace in more than five years.

In fact, according to recent article in The New York Times, luxury homebuyers are driving real estate transactions to pre-recession levels in markets around the country.

But trends in luxury home design have changed dramatically in the last five years. Driven in part by the recession and in part by Baby Boomers entering a new life stage, the priorities of luxury home buyers today are more lifestyle driven.

Today, luxury buyers are more focused on:

  • Design of interior spaces
  • Privacy & security
  • Lifestyle amenities

For luxury homebuyers, this shift in priorities means that existing homes that were built 10 or 20 years ago simply aren’t designed for today’s lifestyle. Advancements in design and technology require a more innovative approach to creating compelling spaces for luxury living.

Here are just a few of the ways that London Bay Homes has responded to these evolving trends:

Intelligently-Designed Interior Spaces

Today’s luxury home design is more open and flexible than in the past with a casual sophistication that is warm and welcoming. Instead of defined spaces created for a specific use, interiors are open and fluid to give you more options to create a home that feels both elegant and functional. For example, our Delfina plan at The Founders Club features more than 4,000 square feet of open living space with soaring ceilings, dramatic architectural details, and a perfect balance of indoor and outdoor living.

A Sense of Privacy and Well-Being

Design has evolved based on the fundamental shift in our perception of what home means to us. Today many luxury homebuyers prefer to balance a desire for privacy with a connection to their community. This balance of community and privacy provides a greater peace of mind and a richer life. At London Bay Homes we build homes in some of Southwest Florida’s best golf and social clubs. Each home is designed with privacy in mind: thoughtfully placed windows, well-executed home orientation, and a mindful consideration of how each room relates to the next.
