Home designs change every few years. New designers try out new ideas while still giving the buying public what they feel comfortable seeing. The edges are blurred over a period of time, and what was once an open floor plan is now called something else. What are these new design trends, and does St Simons real estate have it? You bet it does!
The Great Room
The great room in antiquity combined a study or office, living room, dining room, and space for the owner’s troops to train. Today’s great room is much the same, but without the troops. The ceiling is vaulted, and the area combines the same functions as in antiquity. The great room occupies the center of the first floor, with the kitchen off of it.
A good example of such a room is 225 Aledru Way. This five bed, six and one half bath home offers lots of wood accents, a large kitchen with granite counters and plenty of storage. And a great room.
The Baby Boomer generation is finding room in their homes for their Gen X and Millennial kids and grandkids. Basement, attic apartments, and in-law suites are finished with future family residents in mind. Floor plans are adapted to senior living, while other rooms and/or apartments are ideal for the younger set.
A home incorporating a guest house will be found at 19 Darien Circle. This eight bed and eight and one half bath home uses wood, stone, and ceiling beams to take you back to an earlier time. Water views can be seen from many rooms.
St Simons real estate changes with the changing times. Vaulted ceilings, great rooms, and walls of windows are just a few design innovations you’ll find when you contact DeLoach Sotheby’s International Realty to learn more about it.
