3 Homes Designed for Working, Learning and Living at Home

Now that we are just over one year into the pandemic, everyone is thinking differently about what they want in their luxury homes or really, any homes for that matter! The role of what “home” means to us has changed drastically. The place that was traditionally reserved for de-stressing, relaxing and re-energizing us, now shares the same place we are now working hard, attending classes, brainstorming, and “zooming”. Fortunately, there are several available listings that we currently have on the market that provide both the necessary space to unwind, as well as the space to host your virtual meetings, attend your online classes, and anything else you might need for getting the job done!

See below to view a few of the luxury homes for sale that provide the functionality to house today’s advanced lifestyle.
