It’s true that many luxury residences are spacious with lots of expensive furnishings. But most people still want amenities. They want to get the ultimate in convenience and extravagance, just because that’s what they’re paying for.
Here are some common examples of amenities that you’d likely find in luxury homes:
A great view. This is a classic feature that many long for. That’s why many private residences are on hilly terrain while the most expensive condo units are on the highest floors. There’s nothing like a beautiful view!
A great view is imperative for those who can afford luxury home, so large windows and nice outdoor living spaces are crucial as well.
Security and privacy. People may want to look out into the world around them, but they surely don’t want people to look into their property. Obviously, having uninvited guests is also not a good idea. That’s why security guards and cameras are the norm. At the very least, they live in gated communities or in condo complexes with tight security in the lobby.
Home automation and high tech. Having a network of smart appliances and devices is now within reach. Not too long ago this was an exclusive right granted to the wealthy. Many wealthy households are filled with extensive home automation systems, so that they can program and easily control their HVAC systems, security, entertainment, lighting and more.
Some homes have lots of environmentally-friendly features, including solar panels and other green technology. Many own electric vehicles, and they may even have their own charging station within their property.
Home Entertainment. People want to be entertained at home, regardless of their net worth. Giant TV screens, game rooms and entertainment centers all provide proper home entertainment. Other features may include a library, a billiards room, and a full bar. Having a movie night in these homes is an experience that a guest can never forget.
Private gyms and athletic courts. Lots of people have their own home fitness equipment. The wealthiest of them have their own gyms. This makes it easy for them to keep themselves fit. They may also go all out and have a private spa as well.
Many also enjoy having their own basketball courts and tennis courts. Some are even known to have their own bowling alleys. Of course, a very large property or lot area is required for these types of amenities.
Wine cellars. Knowledge and an appreciation for wine is very common. Many who start with more modest beginnings before achieving financial success tend to develop an interest in wine and have their own wine cellars for their collection.
Large garages. Many wealthy people—collect cars. That means getting a large garage for all of them, and often the garage acts as a showroom for their car collections. It’s like having your own museum.
Fantastic pools. For the wealthy, there are basically two types of swimming pools. There’s the pool that oozes class and beauty, such as an infinity pool, which is similar to resort pools. The other type of pool is the Olympic version, and this is often for the serious swimmers.
