Idaho Luxury Homes for Sale

What make a house a Luxury Home?

In Southern Idaho, luxury represents the homes priced over $1,000,000 dolllars. These homes tend to be considerable in size, located in exclusive areas, constructed and finished with high-end materials and infinite attention to detail. These homes have been designed with uncommon architectural details and features that accentuate style and the owner's lifestyle, enhancing their extravagant feel.

What Makes A High Caliber Home?

First is the designer and custom home builder. You cannot expect first class results from average plans and builders who don't understand the expectations of buyers looking to build a truly one of a kind dream home.

These homes typically possess several distinctive qualities.

1. Premium Location

In Southern Idaho, it is the Foothills or mountains, the Boise River or Snake River or high rise conominiums that help create the setting for prestige. High-end luxury homes are built in the most envious locations. Whether they’re situated high above others, along the waterfront or at the center of a bustling city, these homes are found in prime locations. Sometimes, prestige location may also mean remote or away from the private.

2. Higher Price

There are definitely neighborhoods and areas that are more coveted to live in. While high-end homes are often found in these more-desirable areas, they tend to command a higher price than even nearby properties.

3. Premium Materials

Quality is everything. These homes must look like they will be here for generations. The entire property must be constructed and finished with premium materials, it doesn’t matter how many rooms it has. Primium material also require the area's master craftsmen to do the work.

4. Greater Square Footage 

Size matters a great deal to luxury home buyers. Many times this translates into larger rooms and a larger number of rooms – be them additional bedrooms, staff quarters or areas dedicated to specialized amenities. In other cases, this additional space makes for larger, open areas and colossal master suites. The greater the square footage, the more luxurious these homes are considered, which also helps justify the price as well.

5. Unique Designs

Homes that appear distinctive are held in higher esteem. Why pay for the best when there are cookie-cutter replicas in other neighborhoods. High caliber homes come in all shapes and styles, for luxury means something different to each person.

Often, it’s the unique designs of the home – based on the singular priorities of the homeowner for whom it was designed and built – which furnish the property with the luxury label.

6. Unrivaled Amenities

Luxury homes offerg residents a slew of decadent amenities that most Americans would be hard-pressed to find in their towns. The features of these high-end homes provide comforts and pleasure that range from classic conveniences – like swimming pools, basketball courts and tennis courts – to more outrageous attractions – like indoor rock-climbing walls and shooting ranges. If you can dream it and can afford it, it can be built into your house.

7. Prestige

It can be challengeing put a price on prestige. What is someone willing to pay for that? The prestigiousness of a home can vary based on historical relevance of the house, built by a reknowned architect or formerly lived in by a celebrity, homes that have prominent stories to tell tend to be viewed as more high-end. However, it’s challenging to put a price on prestige. Just because a home is renowned doesn’t mean there are necessarily buyers who will be willing to pay more for it.

In Conclusion

While luxury homes are located in the most envious areas, designed with the highest quality materials and include the most outrageous amenities, they’re ultimately only worth what buyers are willing to pay for them. High-end properties tend to linger on the market longer than average-priced homes because their prestige and lavish features are incomparable and thus make valuation challenging.
