Home for Sale Made for Multi-Generational Modern Families!

Newly Listed Home Addresses Needs of Modern Families

BAINBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, OHIO – Beyond refined curb appeal, spacious living areas and upscale comforts, 18061 Hawksmoor Way includes a unique in-law/nanny suite that offers added flexibility and value for prospective buyers. Together, the home and suite can easily accommodate contemporary, multi-generational family living.

      “With the population growing older, many adults are providing a home within their home for aging parents,” notes Mary Frances LaGanke, the Howard Hanna Realtor® listing the property. “It’s also not uncommon for 20 something’s to return to the nest after college as they step into the working world. With two large rooms, a kitchen, a full bath and a separate entrance, the suite offers an adaptable extra living space that meets the needs of today’s families.”

      According to the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C., the share of Americans living in multi-generational family households is the highest it’s been since the 1950s. And there’s been a significant increase in the past five years. The National Association of Realtors 2013 Profile of Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences report also cites that 20 percent of homebuyers are willing to pay more for a home with an in-law suite. As the cost of senior care-giving facilities and services continues to rise, and “boomerang kids” move back home, many prospective homebuyers are looking at the potential financial savings and resale advantages a home with an extended-family dwelling can bring.

      Located on a wooded 1.8 acre cul-de-sac lot in a luxury development and built in 2004, 18061 Hawksmoor Way offers a like-new appearance. The colonial includes hardwood and tile flooring, two-story ceilings and a large kitchen that opens to an impressive great room with stone-faced fireplace and wall of windows. A first-floor master suite has a spa bath with dual closets and upstairs there are four bedrooms, each with access to a full bath. There’s also a handy second-floor laundry room. Additional attractions include a breakfast area, sizeable living and dining rooms, a partially finished basement, a patio, and a great location just four miles from Chagrin Falls Village and a half-mile from Solon. The home, which is in the award-winning Kenston school district, is priced at $724,000.
