Sweet spot: Builders offer flexible spaces for private retreats

Categories: New Homes Chicago | Posted: April 25, 2017

With the popularity of open concept floor plans that provide large gathering areas for family and friends, both homebuyers and builders realize that it is more important than ever for homes to have flexible private spaces too.

Studies, home offices, toddlers’ play rooms, flat-screen TV viewing rooms, finished basements and other “sweet spots” can afford refreshing getaways from family togetherness when it is time for homework, office work or other quiet pursuits. These flexible spaces also offer the advantage of being adaptable to the evolving needs of family life.

Private flexible spaces are not only prized by busy families but by active adults as well. The Freedom Homes offered at Carillon at Cambridge Lakes in Pingree Grove and Wentworth in Gurnee offer one-level living with two bedrooms and a den as well as optional second floors that can be finished in a variety of ways from conditioned storage to another bedroom and bath plus a game room or loft.

“Whether it is comfortable, light-filled space for guests, children and grandchildren or just more room for hobbies, our 55-and-more buyers appreciate having space that they can use for their particular lifestyle needs,” Naatz says,

William Ryan Homes also offers flexible spaces in its many home designs, including flex rooms in both ranch and two-story plans, lofts, morning rooms and finished basements.

“Bartlett Ridge, our new community of single-family homes, includes luxury ranch and two-story homes that include flex rooms on the main levels, and many plans also have second-floor lofts,” says Chris Coleman, Chicago Division president for William Ryan Homes. “Other possibilities include the option of modifying the rear bay of a three-car tandem garage into a study, or finishing the basement which can include a large space for recreation as well as a bedroom and a full finished bath. Finished basements are very popular with parents of children of all ages as well as those who enjoy entertaining larger groups of people.

“Another flex space is the William Ryan Homes signature morning room which adjoins the main gathering area and offers another opportunity to expand dining or activity space,” Coleman says. “Buyers have never had so much opportunity to custom-tailor the spaces within their homes to make them versatile and comfortable for many years to come.”
