It’s officially back-to-school season – even though many students won’t be sitting in classrooms again until later this fall. Due to the pandemic, many parents and school officials have decided to keep kids at home to protect their health and safety. While some students may be excited about studying chemistry from their couches or trading in their uniforms for pajamas, parents are wondering what homeschooling and remote learning will look like at home.
In an attempt to normalize their children’s day-to-day activities during these unusual times, many parents are creating at-home workspaces for their children to mimic a classroom environment. For that reason, homes with offices and studies are becoming more important in the eyes of consumers.
LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) represents a variety of listings in the Denver Metro area that are ideal for families trying to tackle homeschooling and remote learning this fall. We’ve done the homework on which features students will benefit from this semester.
In Lakewood, 12432 West 16th Drive, listed by LIV SIR brokers, Debbie Zucker Anderson and Carly Olsen, is not only set on a large lot at the end of a cul-de-sac with amazing mountain views, but also has a large office/library that could serve as an at-home classroom. The space is large enough that both parents and students could share the workspace comfortably. This home also features an additional living space downstairs that has an office, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry area which could be converted into a kitchen. This portion of the house would be perfect for multigenerational living or a college student looking for more independence while living at home.
While having a place dedicated to learning is very important, any student will tell you that the best part of the school day is when they get to let off some steam. Enjoy recess in the backyard of LIV SIR broker, Nancy Levine’s, stunning listing at 950 South Steele Street in Denver.
