Top amenities to look for in a Cleveland luxury home

Michelle McQuade | February 6, 2019

Many luxury homes in Cleveland boast timeless architecture, stunning craftsmanship, and an assortment of features designed to provide the ultimate luxurious lifestyle.

If you’re in the market for a luxury home but are not quite sure which amenities and features to look out for, here are a few things that might catch your interest:

Modern living room with garden view

Indoor recreational areas

Some modern luxury homes are equipped with a spacious indoor recreational area for specific purposes. Some have indoor tennis courts, indoor basketball courts, or large, open rooms which you can turn into your own game room, entertainment center, and so on.

Smart home features

Nowadays, you’ll be able to find luxury homes equipped with smart home technology. These features give homeowners full control of appliances, security systems, air conditioners, lighting fixtures, and so much more through their smartphone.

Oversized walk-in closets

There’s no place in luxury homes for any cramped closets – you want your closets to have lots of space for clothes, shoes, accessories, and even dressing rooms with large mirrors. Your walk-in closet is not only an extension of your bedroom, but a space that reflects your style.

Top-of-the-line security systems

Comfort isn’t the only thing you should look for when buying a luxury home. It needs to be able to protect your family at all times, too. As a homeowner, you can get peace of mind through security features that let you know if there’s anything happening in your home at any given moment. Look for features such as 24/7 monitoring, indoor/outdoor CCTV cameras, alarm systems, and more.

State-of-the-art kitchens

High-end appliances are definitely a must in any type of luxury home, but even the most expensive refrigerator loses its charm in a cramped and cluttered kitchen. A luxury home should have a spacious and well-organized kitchen with ample counter space as well as extra features like an island with its own sink, a double oven, custom cabinets, and more.

Impressive craftsmanship

Pristine crown moulding, elegant built-in bookshelves, energy-efficient windows, gorgeous archways – it’s all in the details. A stylish and well-built luxury home is always better than a haphazardly constructed one, and will be able to hold its value for many years to come.

Outdoor living areas

Look for backyards equipped with features like a fire pit, covered patio with seating areas, or sundeck. If you love spending time outdoors, you need a home with a well-integrated outdoor living area that connects to interior common areas.

Spa-like bathrooms

Let the stress of everyday life melt away when you take a relaxing bath at the end of the day. Many luxury homes are equipped with luxurious bathrooms that are similar to ones found in a professional spa, with features such as heated floors, a steam room, a walk-in shower, a soaking tub, and more.
