Charlotte Area Homes With Main Floor Owner Suites

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

HOMES WITH OWNER SUITES ON THE MAIN FLOOR IN THE GREATER CHARLOTTE AREA

 

One thing my buyer clients increasingly have been asking for in the last several years is for a home with an owner's suite on the main floor. Part of the reason is that baby boomers are aging. Also, quite a number of my clients grew up in one-story homes and like the idea of having their bedroom on the main floor, even if they are purchasing a two-story home.

 

We often joke that Charlotte is the "home of two-story brick boxes," where an owner's suite is typically on the second floor. Fortunately, in recent years, more of our builders are offering homes with a first floor owner's suite, but they can still be hard to find.

 

BENEFITS OF AN OWNER'S SUITE ON THE MAIN FLOOR

  • Ideal for aging in place and not needing to navigate stairs on a daily basis.

  • Ideal for homeowners with with disabilities that make it difficult for them to navigate stairs.

  • Provides easy access to all the main living areas of a home.

  • Provides distance and privacy from older children in the home whose bedrooms are on the upper floor.

  • Provides savings on heating and cooling a home if you can "shut" off the second floor except when hosting visitors.

Nina, I have had many requests for main floor bedroom also.  Sometimes it is for them, but sometimes it is for parents when they come for a visit and can't do stairs.

Having a master bedroom on the first floor is VERY important here on the Space Coast (you may not have heard, but we have a large population of Senior citizens). lol

Hi Nina- The only reason we are in a two story now is that it had the primary bedroom on the main floor. I remember thinking when we were younger and in a two-story/all bedrooms up...what would happen if one of us broke a leg?

Joan Cox I'm amazed at how many people who are still in their 50's ask me for a main floor owner's suite.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty hi Jeff... yes indeed... in Florida I would expect a big demand for a main floor owner's suite. Here in Charlotte with lots of younger families it used to be a hindrance in selling a home... but that has changed over the past few years.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... I have a 5 bedroom, although the front main floor bedroom is my office. The owner's suite is on the main floor and I have an additional guest room and bathroom on the main floor... it has come in handy when my husband had knee replacement surgery and spine surgery.

Nina a first floor master bedroom is an excellent feature, especially for those of us who are at a mature point in their life.  ☺️

Nina I remember when my parents bought their last home and my father wanted to recreate the CT home and he wanted two stories.... then when I visited him after my  mom passed... he was  staying on the first floor.... I asked why.... he said all the stairs ...I come down in the morning and go up at night... two trips are enough for me...Endre

The older I get, the more I appreciate main floor living.  Stairs have become highly over-rated!🙃

When I was looking for a home, I would not look at a 2-story home if there was not a bedroom on the ground floor.

George Souto for sure, George. Then again, my mother owned a 4th floor coop in NYC in an 1890 building with no elevator... she had the best legs you'd ever see in a woman in her 70's!

Endre Barath, Jr. hi Endre... after two knee surgeries and still due for a hip replacement I can appreciate not having to do stairs multiple times a day... although, I do, as I have some from the garage to the house and to my front porch, as well.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS good morning, Paul... I'm finding way more demand for first floor primary bedrooms in the past few years than I had 20 or even 10 years ago.
