What do empty nesters look for in a home? Features that complement their phase three lifestyle.
So if you've moved past your family's young teen stage, through their college and early professional years, then no doubt you have an idea or two of how you'd like your home to live as the nest begins to empty...and beyond.
And according to this piece from Houzz, you're not alone.
And as a phase three-er already working on plans for our next home---once that last chicken leaves the nest--- I'd say this wish-list is pretty much right on track!
Take a look:
- One-floor living
- Efficient and low maintenance
- Separate zones-- for visitors/guests
- Connected to the landscape
- Barefoot and barrier free--inside blends with the outdoors
- Open planning
- A cozy and joyful corner-- a nook to start the day
- Away room--a quiet get-away
- Easy to use--everything operates effortlessly
- Hazard free--accessible features for later years
- A place to relax and enjoy.
So, what's on your list?
