Whether it is not having time to drive to the gym or the thought of someone seeing you in your workout attire, more and more homeowners are bringing the gym home. This seems to be a big trend among the 50 plus buyers. NAHB states that one-third of new home buyers rank a home exercise room as desirable. It ranks just behind offices and home theaters.
The most popular place in the home to add an exercise room is adjacent to the master bedroom. This could be a great encouragement for actually taking the time to work out.
I recently visited an amazing model home in Hickory Woods, a collection of 51 homes from Robert Harris Homes. This Cobb County community features finely crafted homes priced from the $600,000s from the builder’s Custom Collection. The decorated model home is a Crestwood floorplan with five bedrooms, five full baths and two half-baths. This home is loaded with everything imaginable detail and option of luxury – this includes a home gym and sauna!
There are so many amazing things about this home that it is hard to write about them all. It is just something that you have to see for yourself, but here are some of the highlights: The home also features an upstairs children’s retreat/media room as well as a media room downstairs complete with full serving kitchen and poker table area. Adjacent to the downstairs media room is a billiard room with a beautiful stacked stone wall. The screened-in outdoor living area features a stacked stone fireplace and a beautiful view of the home’s very own outdoor waterfall. Priced at $899,900 this gorgeous home is a steal and can be purchased fully-furnished.
