Today’s trends in luxury real estate include luxurious beach houses, penthouses and villas in the best places on earth. Trends in luxury real estate actually change often, but there are some things that always remain the same.
Water front properties are always in the top rankings. Beach houses can be so luxurious that you will prefer to stay there even if the other option is a five star hotel. Beach houses can include a number of facilities as a rather big apartment and private beach. The trend today is to have your own butler that can take care of the house when you are not there and take care of your requests when you are. Luxurious beach houses can be found in the whole world. Miami, southern France, resorts in Spain, Greek islands and exotic Asia are just a few places that you can consider. (Take a look at this Lake Como Villa with its very own beach)
If you are looking for property in a city, the trend in luxury real estate today is definitely new studios. New studios is the name given to apartments that can be found in the cities in buildings that were of limited use in the past. Buildings that were not used are most of the times old and have big apartments and a rather valuable architecture in the outside. When the government decides to renovate these buildings and use them, you have your chance to create a luxurious apartment. There are many cities in Europe and in the States that have undergone these procedures and there are also many people that took the opportunity to buy an apartment in the city in a beautiful building that is fully renovated and has a history of its own. These apartments are large and most of the times have tall ceilings that give the impression of royalty. Bathrooms are big and contain all the facilities including Jacuzzi and hot tabs and there are almost always extra rooms that are used as wardrobes.
If you want an apartment in the city but you don’t want a studio, you can check the penthouses. Penthouses are the number one classic trend in luxury real estate and the reason for that is the view. Any penthouse even these from hotels base their process in the view. There is nothing that can make an apartment more luxurious than being able to see the sun rising, the sunset and the city lights in the night with the moon and the stars above you. Just thinking of it makes someone feel relaxed. Penthouses are also very practical. They can be used as your first apartment and you can leave there alone or with your family. They are commonly preferred by people that travel on business a lot as they offer two things. The first is the chance to relax and enjoy a beautiful view when you are home and the second is that a penthouse is ideal to host an informal meeting. So make sure to check this option if you like it.
