A long list of features adorn this home which totals 6,669 sq ft. 

 

 

In the 70’s there was a very popular TV show call the Walton’s.  America fell in love with this family that lived in a MULTI-GENERATIONAL HOME.  We watched the family interact and even though the Walton’s were poor we could not help but envy their wonderful family relationships.

Karen Conrado and I listed a home in Sebastian that was designed as a multi-generation home.  It was this luxury home of almost 3900 square feet with two separate living areas that inspired me to research multi-generational homes. 


This is what I learned:  There is a noticeable rise in the housing market for multi-generational homes.  According to PEW RESEARCH CENTER DATA, 19% or over 60 million people live in multi-generational homes; of that, 27 million live in three-generation homes.  Multi-generational homes should not be confused with Duplexes.  A multi-generation home is designed so family can co-mingle while still having their own space.  It is a lifestyle choice not an income property.

Some households become mult-igeneration because of need.  It can be a matter of finances, health or help with the children.
My parents, sister and I moved in with my father's family so my mom and dad could save for a down-payment on a home.  Pat and I lived with my parents with our children while we were remodeling a home. Our Daughter and her husband lived with us while our-son-in-law was in medical school.  These were wonderful times.

In some cases, when finances are no longer an issue, family members stay because the multi-generational home works beautifully for all involved. Other families come together because it is natural to their culture. Many families come together by choice.  As a result, we are seeing newer homes being built with “Mother in Law Suite”.  Here in Indian River we have a term for this suite:  we call it a CASITA, most common in courtyard homes.


Homes are now being designed with the MULTI-GENERATIONAL FAMILY LIFESTYLE in mind.  John Burns Real Estate Consulting did a study of 20,000 buyers; 44% were considering the possibility of their parents moving in.  42% planned to have adult children move in. WOW, again WOW!!!

This trend has not gone unnoticed by developers, builders and designers. Many believe that multi-generational homes are here to stay and we will be seeing test communities in the very near future.  One of the issues builders are having are building codes in residential areas.  Two kitchens may present a problem.
There are advantages to this lifestyle. Taking care of mom and dad no longer involves a commute.  Families interact and parents and grandchildren reap the benefits of grandparents. There are more hands to help around the home and in general more money in everyone’s pocket. 

Family members can enjoy their private space and gather at will in communal areas like the dinner table,  yard, verandas, pool and craft room.  Separate yet together homes like this offer the best of both worlds. 

There were other shows that had mult-igenerational themes like All in the Family, Reba and Full House.  I'm quick to remind myself that these are TV shows. I'm also quick to remember there is nothing like being around family.  This is Mary Lou Ciambriello with Wendy Wilson's RE/MAX Associated Realty wishing you the joy of returning home to your loving family.  Goodnight John Boy.
