The moment I saw this house, I could feel how peaceful the interiors are. This is one of those houses you walk by and can’t help but wonder how it looks inside… do you feel that way too? It happens with me all the time!
You can easily picture a friendly couple sitting and talking in the front porch. You can also imagine this couple happily living in this house because it seems just the perfect fit for empty nesters.
Having an open-concept floorplan is a feature that many empty nesters look for in a home, but there are also other very important factors that you should take in consideration when looking for your ideal home, and this home has many of these qualities. Keeping the main rooms on one level should be your priority. The house can have more than one level (maybe you prefer having the guests sleeping upstairs), but having the master located on the main floor can make life easier down the road. Also, keep in mind the square-footage you need. The more you have, the more time it will consume to keep it clean. Smaller homes can be charming and more affordable to maintain.
Another important factor I saw in this house that I actually really like and recommend for empty nesters is the connection it has with the outdoors. Even if you’re looking for low-maintenance yards, remember that it’s always pleasant to be outside on a porch or patio. These areas will also extend your living space.
Take a look at this home designed by Highland Homes and Hollingsworth Design, and you’ll see that you really don’t have to compromise on style after the kids moves out. Perhaps, this is the time to finally make of your empty nest, a dream home!
