Some Brooklyn 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 New York 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 luxury homes almost always include a pool. In fact, many traditional homes now offer this feature as well (sometimes labeled a “luxury” addition). That being the case, the pools that appear in luxury home listings often sport a bonus feature or two. That may be a hot tub, waterfall, or other creative design element like infinity edges or outdoor bars and TVs— always attractively designed.
Today’s Brooklyn 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 (right, Kim K.?), you would hardly expect standard-sized wardrobe arrangements to suffice. Luxury homes in New York 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 New York luxury homes, but the whole package also needs to be presented properly: savvy marketing remains the key to a successful sale.
