This year, our homes have become more important to us than ever before. Where we live, has truly become where we live. From the comfort of our homes, we now work, shop, play, and relax. Houses have become more than where we start and end our days, they are now the focal point of our lives.
Thanks to this shift, people have had to get creative about how they use the space they have. Every nook and cranny has the potential to be a study space, reading corner, meditation room, or work station. As the lines between home, office, and school become even more blurred, the way we look at homes has to change to fit our new standard in work-life balance.
Explore a couple of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty’s listings in Denver that offer the opportunity to blend the best of home, work and play – all under one roof.
Redefine “work-from-home” in the rare, downtown Denver residence at 1441 Wazee Street, Unit #101. This completely remodeled property, listed by LIV SIR broker, Georgia Gallagher, for $1,295,000, features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a street-level retail or office space. There are no limits to how this residence can be used. Lead your business from the living room, use additional bedrooms as offices, or make the entire space your downtown abode – let your imagination run wild! Not only is this listing perfectly outfitted to be the ultimate work-from-home destination, but the sleek design elements also ensure that your hybrid home is as stylish as it is sensible. Dark hardwood floors, edgy exposed brick, and chic white cabinetry elevate the space. Each bathroom incorporates designer tile and light fixtures. Unwind after a long workday in the soaking tub or the steam shower.
“This unit is zoned as a live/workspace and isn’t that what we all need right now? This space is designed so the office can be closed off from the home or used as part of it,” commented Gallagher.
Right now, having a home that is flexible enough to move with you as you go through life’s changes is essential. If there is one word that describes LIV SIR broker, Mckinze Casey’s listing, 2605 18th Street listed for $7,999,000, it would be versatility. Although every inch of this estate is gorgeous, from the private courtyard with fully retractable glass doors that blend the indoors with the outside to the rooftop green space with sweeping city and mountain views, there are two spaces that take it to the next level. The second-level flex space can be your at-home headquarters, your own private fitness studio, classroom, or relaxing lounge. Make this room whatever you need it to be to customize your home to fit your unique needs. Additionally, the entire lower-level acts as a sperate apartment, complete with a bedroom, private bathroom suite, secondary laundry facilities, a kitchen, living area, and outdoor patio. With enough privacy to be used as a mother-in-law suite, a short-term rental residence, or private living quarters for older children, this space has countless uses that creates long-term value for the buyer of the home.
“The mentality of finding a home with the perfect color of cabinets has taken a back seat to finding space that allows homeowners to adapt to the ever-changing challenges of today,” explained Casey.
