Though gourmet kitchens and well-appointed bathrooms will always be essential, these days, it’s just as important to have an abundance of outdoor amenities where families can spend time together in the open air. Following are several such features that are sure to appeal to high-end buyers in the coming year.

Spacious Grounds
It’s no secret that a large piece of land has become one of the most sought-after features in luxury real estate, offering privacy and endless possibilities for outdoor activities. Many homeowners want enough space to feel like they’re at their own private compound, complete with ample space for their kids to run around and the option to add plenty of backyard features.

Professional Landscaping
While spacious grounds are desirable, it’s important that they be well maintained. A professionally landscaped outdoor area can completely transform the way a property feels by creating tranquil views and adding an extra layer of privacy to screen out the rest of the world. Additionally, it’s sure to appeal to nature-lovers who spend their time basking in the outdoors.

Well-Designed Living Spaces
Homeowners have high expectations when it comes to creating a comfortable and luxurious outdoor living area. An outdoor kitchen complete with a barbecue, refrigerator and al fresco dining space has become a top feature, but it doesn’t stop there. Many buyers want multiple seating areas, like a fire pit they can sit around in the evenings or a screened-in porch they can use when it’s raining.

Stylish Pool Area
Swimming pools are a hot commodity these days, but luxury buyers aren’t just looking for any old pool. They expect a breathtaking pool area where the whole family can feel like they’re at a private resort while lounging and splashing around under the sun. Of course, a hot tub that can be used year-round is a major bonus, as well.
