Jewel Box Homes - Boomers trending towards Compact Luxury
The kids are raised, the huge family home is starting to need some expensive updates, and truthfully it's a whole lot of work to maintain.
Some baby boomers are opting for the Jewel Box - a compact but luxurious place to call home. These low maintenance homes are popping up all over Colorado Springs.
The lots are small, but located in Beautiful Communities with professional landscaping and often with amenities like athletic centers, golf and club houses. These practical homes feature main floor living, but can offer downstairs entertainment for the kids when they come to visit. Yard work is little to none, unless you want to keep a small flower or Salsa Garden!
The Italian Villa is a gorgeous concept - Rustic Stone & Stucco homes are built along a lovely cobblestone street with fountains at the entrance to the Villa.
Mountain retreats and Southwest Architecture are also popular themes for these hot new communities. With more free time, boomers are trending towards compact luxury with Jewel Boxes, so that they can enjoy a luxurious lifestyle and focus on what's important to them.
