Some Bainbridge Island luxury homes are so distinctive that they stubbornly resist fitting into any simple category. Whether due to unusual architecture or unique geographical features, such properties remain in a class of their own.
But for most other homeowners preparing to sell their luxury homes in Bainbridge Island this spring, some baseline features are close to must-haves. According to Morgan Brennan of Forbes.com, “It is almost a given,” that listed multimillion dollar properties will claim certain features.
Top-of-class Bainbridge Island luxury homes almost always have water views or are on the water itself. That being the case, these waterfront homes that appear in luxury listings often sport access to their own private beach with dock or mooring buoy. The home is designed to feature the waterfront exposure with kitchens, living areas and master bedrooms facing spectacular water views. Patios and outdoor rooms allow your guests and family to enjoy the water views while taking in the fresh air.
Today’s Bainbridge Island luxury homes may not seem luxury enough without a richly appointed home theatre: one with the additional media features that take television and movie viewing to a new level. True home theatres come equipped with plush seating, multi-channel surround sound systems, or even (why not?) classic velvet curtains to part when the movie begins.
Many luxury homes do not just have walk-in closets for the master bedroom—they may also include them throughout the house. Since their owners usually have extravagant budgets when it comes to shopping, you would hardly expect standard-sized wardrobe arrangements to suffice. Luxury homes in town may have closets equipped with complete dressing facilities, including full-length mirrors and individual powder rooms.
These features are predictably popular with prospective buyers of area luxury homes, but the whole package also needs to be presented properly: savvy marketing remains the key to a successful sale.
