These grandiose features define luxurious living.
So you’re at the point in life where you’re ready to own a luxury home -- congratulations! If you’ve never owned a luxury home, you’ve probably ogled at them in home magazines but may have never toured the interior of one with a realtor. Luxury homes are typically classified as real estate with an appraised value above $1 million and they’re easy to spot because they stand out from the rest with certain features you won’t find in the typical home.
If you’re ready to get out there and browse your options, keep an eye out for the following features. There are many luxury homes for sale in southwest Missouri and an experienced real estate agent from Southwest Missouri Realty can help point out all the fantastic features of the luxury homes for sale that are well worth the price tag.
Breathtaking kitchens and bathrooms
For most homeowners, the appearance of a home’s kitchen is a big deal. Unless someone is planning on renovating, a lackluster kitchen can be the difference between a move in and a move on. The luxury homes for sale that you’ll find in our listings all boast magnificent kitchens with the latest technologies and updated appliances. Since it’s such a selling point, most luxury home designers will make sure the kitchen is well-suited for communal cooking with lots of space, sleek design and even smartphone activated appliances, in some cases.
Bathrooms are no different. Luxury homes are notorious for spacious and extravagant bathrooms with elements like customized double-sink vanities, Jacuzzi bathtubs, walk-in showers and pieces made with quality materials such as onyx and marble. Many luxury homes for sale will also boast big windows with expansive views, carefully detailed finishes, accent lighting complimented with gorgeous fixtures and refined colors and textures on the walls.
Ample room for guests
While many homes have small guest rooms, many of the luxury homes for sale in the area go above and beyond with spacious guest quarters. Whether it’s a guest house or a beautifully designed and private area of the home, many guest spaces in luxury homes come complete with a separate kitchen, bathroom, sitting area and bedroom. If you’re considering investing in a luxury home, you can bet you’ll have the pleasure of providing your guests with lavish accommodations.
A large lot
One of the major benefits of the luxury homes for sale in Southwest Missouri is that they are surrounded by the beautiful Ozark Mountains. One of the great features of luxury homes in general is that they typically come with beautiful landscaped acreage. And in Missouri, what’s not to love about the surrounding scenery? Even in the heart of Springfield, Mo, you can still find luxury homes with enough land to ensure privacy.
While browsing our listings of luxury homes for sale, you’ll probably find that most luxury homes in the area don’t just have the normal two car garage. It’s not uncommon to find luxury homes with three car garages, additional carports or detached garages and parking pads. For the homeowner with an expansive car collection, spacious garages are a welcome addition.
Beautiful outdoor pool areas
Luxury homes for sale in Southwest Missouri are likely to have gorgeous outdoor pool areas with impressive decks and sometimes even a hot tub! A common characteristic of luxury homes, outdoor pools only add to the overall value of the home and provide homeowners with an additional asset to the property that will provide hours of family fun and guest accommodations.
