Just What Is A Luxury Home?


Price alone does not distinguish that luxury status.  It is location, property entry, architecture, decor, decadent amenities, entertainment capability, lovely grounds and myriad of other details that help a home stand out from the ordinary.

A supersized McMansion does not qualify as a luxury home, unless it has the requisite extras, superior location and a view...perhaps.

As discerning and honest luxury real estate professionals, we believe we know a luxury home when we see it...especially when the property has all the markings of luxury, location, and panache.
