Fantasy Home Features--What's Number One on Your List?

This morning I awoke to the dull throb of an old tennis injury in my shoulder and I muttered under my breath, "I need a massage." Instead, I reached for the vibrating heating pad and settled for twenty minutes of heat and an application of Ben Gay. As I sipped a cup of hot coffee and waited for"Ben" to work his magic on my shoulder I thought how fabulous it would be to have a home spa, complete with masseuse table, and the number of a mobile masseuse close at hand. Since I love a day at the spa, that's the fantasy home feature I dream about.

I see luxury homes day in and day out as a real estate agent on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. These high-end homes are filled with dream kitchens, glorious gardens, grand living rooms, heavenly views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island and twinkling lights of Los Angeles. When showing these homes I watch prospective buyers to see what triggers their personal "tipping point" and I've noticed a shift from kitchen to master bath in many women.

The 21st Century woman is busy, very busy. Career, kids, community and social commitments mean dinner is often takeout, eat out or a shared duty with spouse and kids. The kitchen is still the hub and heart of the home, but the master bath's evolution into a rejuvenation center and sanctuary is a growing trend. Discerning home buyers are not willing to wait for a vacation to restore and renew their spirit; they want the spa experience available in the comfort and convenience of their home.
