What to Expect in a Luxury Home


Whether looking to buy, binge-watching HGTV, or just daydreaming, every homeowner and potential owner has thought about luxury homes at one point or another. These dream homes have more than just a big-ticket price in common, but what can you expect to find in a luxury home? Recent research from found preferences and features vary by state.

Top Home Features For Tennessee homes, the top must-have beyond a pool and bar is a breakfast nook, but thats not the most common feature nationwide. Heres a quick breakdown of the percentage of luxury homes and which amenities they include: Pools: 36.5% Bar: 22.7% Gourmet Kitchen: 12.6% Elevator: 11.6% Waterfront: 10.9%

Largest Homes Another factor that differentiates luxury homes state-by-state is size. While paying $1 million for a home should get you a pretty significant amount of square footage, where you purchase that footage makes a difference: Indiana: 9,289 sq. ft. West Virginia: 8,97 sq. ft. Mississippi: 8,774 sq. ft. Kansas: 8,520 sq. ft. Arkansas: 7,395 sq. ft. Alaska: 7,375 sq. ft. Ohio: 7,347 sq. ft. Kentucky: 6,985 sq. ft. Missouri: 6,907 sq. ft. Louisiana: 6,674 sq. ft.

Unique Features What makes a luxury home luxurious is often the unexpected add-on. Unless youre planning to build a home from the ground-up and choose your own amenities, heres where you can expect to find some of the more unusual features in a luxury home: Basketball Court: Utah (3.4% of homes) Elevator: South Carolina (25.7% of homes) Sauna: Arizona (11.9% of homes) Movie Theater: Indiana (15% of homes)
