Reasons to Buy a Home With a Basement
We’re proud to announce two new Designer homes in Powhatan VA. Available in Maple Grove and Oak Leaf, these spacious homes will be ready this winter. Furthermore, as well as the liveability of all of our floor plans, these homes include a basement, which is a great addition to any home.
A finished basement, like the ones we’re offering, gives homeowners even more flexibility in their overall floor plan. From extended living quarters to great recreational rooms, how you choose to use this bonus space is up to you. There are plenty of reasons to choose a home with a finished basement like our Olivia and Sutherland home floor plans offer. Along with the finished basements, the Olivia has 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 4,451 square feet, and the Sutherland floor plan offers 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 4,617 square feet.
For many people, a basement, whether finished or unfinished, serves as a great storage area. From furniture you may want to pass down, holiday decorations, seasonal clothing, and more, there’s a lot you can store in a basement, leaving your garage free to actually house your cars! Basements are typically much more accessible than attic storage.
Speaking of accessibility, they also typically provide easier access to water heaters, furnaces, pipes, ducts, and wiring. Both of our Designer homes include separate areas for items like this so you can have a finished space without these more unsightly but important elements intruding.
For many homeowners, a finished basement is a great place for hobbies, and more. Because they’re out of the way of the rest of your home, they’re great for holding pool tables, video game systems, home theaters, home gyms, yoga studios, or a fun place for monthly card nights and more. For those with kids, it’s a great space for a playroom where toys can hang out without making a mess of your main living area. It’s also a fun spot for kids to get together with their friends and play, especially on a cold or rainy day.
Multi-generational living is becoming more popular with older parents moving in with their children and grandchildren, as well as young adults moving in while they save for their own home. Even if you just have a big family who visits often, you can turn your finished basement into a guest suite, as most usually have a full bathroom included, and in some cases you could easily install a kitchenette to provide more autonomy and privacy.
These are just some of the many uses you can get from having a home with a finished basement.
