The Art of the Move

In a recent article in Inside Real Estate News, John Rebchook highlights the trend to downsize from a sprawling estate home to a low maintenance lock and leave home, without downsizing the lifestyle. Many of the newer luxury condominium, townhome, lofts and flats that are available in the Denver area accomodate the downsizer by designing floor plans that will highlight what will be moved. The typical downsizing client will move what cannot be replaced; designer clothing, Italian dinner ware, art. In a recent sale of a Cherry Creek North townhome the buyer had an options list that read as follows... additional master bedroom closet space with variable hanging space and an additional shoe closet, a Miele built-in espresso machine and Fisher Paykel dishwasher for the wine goblets, a show stopper La Cornue stove and lots of wall space for the art collection. It's not about the size of the home anymore, it is about the quality of design and the content. If you are considering a downsizing move, connect with a specialist that connects with the builders and developers that have designed these spaces. To quote from the Rebchook article "One of the things we found is that people not only brought their art collections with them, but they kept collecting," said Judy Fahrenkrog "It's not about the move, it's about the art of the move". posted: March 7, 2011 - Judy's Denver - Blog
