13 New Home Communities in St. Louis Feature the Benefits of First Floor Master Suites

One of the most exciting aspects of buying a home is choosing a design that will best serve your needs and lifestyle. Layouts that include a first-floor master suite are not just for the over 65 homeowners anymore. They have become increasingly popular for buyers within a range of ages looking for energy savings, enhanced privacy and a place to accommodate extended family needs. 

If you prefer a home with the benefit of a spacious main level bedroom suite consider one of the many options Rolwes Company has to offer in 13 locations around the St. Louis area.

Easy Living for Years to Come 

Homeowners with a master-down bedroom can enjoy the ease of waking up and taking a stroll to the kitchen for a morning cup of coffee or a short trip to the laundry room to add a quick load of clothes. As well, a first-floor owners’ suite offers a convenient escape for busy homeowners. After a long day, retiring to the peace and quiet of your quarters to recharge for the evening can be a welcome treat.

While many new homes in St. Louis offer benefits for all ages, empty nesters and the boomer generation are looking beyond the convenience. With a first-floor master, access to a bedroom sanctuary throughout the day adds a level of easy living without the hassle of climbing a flight of stairs for tasks throughout the day. 

Plus, planning for years ahead when the ability to go up and down stairs may become limited, a master-down owners’ suite provides long-term options for mobility and aging in place. 

Save on Energy Bills

While many homes are designed to accommodate lifestyles day in and day out, families with spouses who travel or with kids in college can benefit from a home design that features a first-floor suite. It provides the flexibility to turn the heat and air conditioning on and off in upper level rooms when the entire home is not fully occupied. 

Empty nesters with the house to themselves can concentrate their heat and air conditioning on the lower level rather than throughout the house. This can help to substantially lower energy bills, and add up to long term savings.

Accommodate Family and Friends

A downstairs bedroom suite is a great feature for guests when friends and family visit from out of town. The comfort of their own bathroom and bedroom away from the upstairs bedrooms provides welcome privacy. 

As households continue to grow, multi-generational living arrangements are becoming more common. Whether for a visit for holiday celebrations or a long-term stay, grandparents or relatives have an escape all of their own but are also close by to help out or to join in family fun. Similarly, a relative requiring special care can be near family while maintaining a sense of independence.

Value Beyond the Lifestyle

As you can see, homebuyers of all ages are turning to first floor master bedrooms as a top choice for their new homes in St. Louis. Beyond the many reasons that it can make life easier, there can be financial benefit, too.

The increased demand for this lifestyle concept can ultimately increase the resale value of your home. Plus, as the growing boomer generation continues to seek houses with single level living, the popularity of this concept can potentially pay-off over time.
