Why Only Two Stories Will Do
October 02, 2018
Beautiful. Stately. Impressive. Whatever your first impressions of a two-story home, they are sure to be positive. Despite a growing affection for single-story designs, there are a lot of advantages to owning a two-story home, especially a luxury two-story home in Grand Central Park.
One huge advantage is extra privacy. With a single-story home, your living space encompasses both public and private areas. With a two-story home, there is a clear separation between bedrooms and common areas such as the family room. The growing popularity of first-floor media or game rooms further delineates this separation.
Love having weekend guests? Upstairs guest rooms offer everyone privacy when needed. If you have an entertainment loft, kids or grandkids can be sent upstairs to play so the grown-ups can talk. After a busy day of hiking or fishing, they can watch television while you relax in your first-floor master suite.
Other advantages? We have one word for you. Balconies. Balconies are romantic. They add additional outdoor entertainment space and, honestly, they are just cool.
Views are another plus, particularly in Grand Central Park. Our community is beautiful, and the expansive views offered by a two-story home (remember that balcony) are not to be missed.
From a more practical standpoint, stairs can be an aesthetic plus. They give the appearance of a larger home and there’s something dramatic about a view of the staircase from your two-story foyer.
Ah, but what about aging in place? Nowadays, it’s easier than ever. Today’s homes feature first-floor master suites. You won’t have to climb the stairs, but you will still have room for the kids and grandkids.
Intrigued? Builders in Grand Central Park — such as Jaeger Homes — have created amazing two-story designs, with many homes available for immediate move-in. Take a look, fall in love and get your two-story home today.
