Luxury Home and Ranch Trends

Summit County Investment trends echo trends of the US Luxury Market.

The Wall Street Journal reports that popular luxury homes these days include lots of specialized spaces for their owners. Rooms like wine cellars, craft rooms, media or home theatre rooms, separate double baths for master suites, and walk in pantries are among the amenities noted in many high-end homes. Many of the newer homes often have a sunroom or family room instead of a formal dining room as well.

These trends seem to be echoed in many of our luxury category of mountain homes. More of the newer upscale homes have wine cellars, elaborate theatres with graduated seating, open dining areas which create a warm gathering atmosphere, and plenty of “escape spaces” so that family members have space for privacy during their mountain playtime.

Another current trend is the escalation of investment into “cocktail ranches” where the acreage and peaceful surroundings provide time away from the hustle and bustle of the mainstream tourist visitors. These ranches provide a great entry into the mountain community without the upkeep or hassle of a full-blown working ranch.
