If Noah Webster were alive today, he may well have changed the definition of luxury in his big book of words.
Surely, his definition - “a condition of abundance or great ease or comfort,” still works.
As does “sumptuous environment lived in luxury.”
Like Florida in July, he was getting warmer.
A second entry: “Something adding to pleasure or comfort but not absolutely necessary – One of life's luxuries” raises great questions.
“What is absolutely necessary to the home buyer today? What do they consider to be “one of life’s luxuries?"
In pre-pandemic days the answer may have been something entirely different. An exquisite open floor plan, a spacious walk-in closet or perhaps a spectacular view.
While that still aptly describes luxury - Luxury like beauty - is defined ultimately in the eye of the beholder.
Surely the beholder’s tastes of those seeking homes in the luxury market is evolving. Things once considered “one of life’s luxuries” - today a must and a necessity.
A comfortable, safe entertainment room to make memories with family and friends. A well-equipped home office that provides utility and security without leaving home. A view and space that’s a refuge from a bustling and spinning world.
Air. An ability to breathe easier. Freely.
A necessity to all. But to those seeking luxurious options – always placed at the top of their list.
A sense of place. Found in towns providing a respite. A pause. A place to breathe along Florida’s Gulf coast. And the one option that seekers of luxury demand today.
Peace of mind. The ultimate - Luxury.
Found in a place called Florida’s Gulf Coast.
