Top 10 Luxury Home Features

Searching for your Silicon Valley luxury home? Before you buy, consider what high-end home features are your absolute “must-haves.”

Here are Perry Group Real Estate’s Top 10 Recommended Luxury Home Features:

1  Location, Location, Location

Luxury homes are often situated on sprawling tree-lined properties for added privacy. Here in the Silicon Valley, expansive lots may be hard to come by, however that does not mean you need to compromise. Search for a home with lush landscaping situated in a gated neighborhood. An ideal location will also place you in the right school district, of course, and with all of the other shopping amenities you desire nearby. Most important in the Silicon Valley, is commute time and easy access to freeways.

2  Gourmet Kitchen

Whether or not you cook, a luxury kitchen is a must-have in your new luxury home. If you plan on hosting parties or cooking extravagant family meals, search for a kitchen with all the upgrades. For example, double ovens, warming drawers, wine fridges and under cabinet lighting are some luxury features you should look for in your new home. Even better, a butler’s kitchen for all your catered events.

3  Wine Cellar

Do you have a large wine collection? Elegantly store all your favorite wines in your next luxury home.  Long term storage solutions for your collectable bottles is important. Because home temperatures run around 70 degrees on average, fluctuations could lead to the oxidation of your wine over time.

4   Spa Bathroom

Relax in elegance in your own personal spa! No luxury home would be complete without a spa inspired master bath. A luxurious soaking tub, and walk-in shower lined with multiple shower heads, will create the ultimate relaxing atmosphere.

Not only will you have the privacy you want during your workout, you can customize the space to include the exact equipment you prefer. The home gym is a convenient alternative to your local athletic club. In addition to the gym, a home theater will make all your viewing experiences unique. Enjoy game day and  movie showings in luxurious chairs. Watch on an oversized screen and enjoy added amenities like a snack or drink bar. This will make your TV experience truly high-end.
