Julie Jones-Bernard from Florida Luxurious Properties in Fort Lauderdale has been noticing a growing trend in the demand for private residences that will accommodate extended family living requirements.
Julie states, “It is a fact that as we live longer we are expecting more from our residences – an unexpected but welcome family addition, adult children returning to the fold, blended and extended families, the guest or relative from out of State or overseas who visits (and never leaves), plus don’t forget the grandparents, nanny, house manager or Boat Captain.” A residence that will truly accommodate and give pleasure for decades or generations to come is not an unusual request at the exclusive boutique brokerage of Florida Luxurious Properties.
In Europe and other countries, overseas families try to accommodate the needs of elderly parents living with the family as opposed to assisted living or other establishments. Uniting the family so that children can enjoy time with their grandparents and having the ability to pull the family together is a priority for many of the buyers that Julie has had the pleasure to work with.
When Julie list a luxury residence that will meet the requirements of a true generational residence, she is excited to promote the features to potential buyers. Size is not everything. The floorplan is just as important as the square footage of the residence; from additional driveway space for the extra cars to a private entrance or how to adjust the floorplan to meet the needs of a particular family are important aspects.
