Are You In The Market For a Luxury Home? Here Are Just A Few Of The Options Out There

wainscoting styles The housing market is recovering at an incredibly fast rate — with sales of existing homes easily trumping the number of homes sold just last year, in September 2013. Moreover, distressed sales, or sales of foreclosed homes, are the lowest they have been since 2008. In other words, Americans are buying more homes than ever before, and they’re buying nice homes, too. What are some of the most luxurious homes out there?

“There Was An Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe…”
It may surprise you to learn what a Pennsylvania man did with his riches. Mahlon Haines made his fortune selling shoes and ultimately designed a house to resemble a giant shoe, perhaps to celebrate his empire — or as an advertising schtick. Either way, the Haines’s home includes several luxury features and amenities, in spite of its strange outer appearance. Stained glass windows, a dog house also shaped like a shoe, and an observation platform are just some of the perks of the Pennsylvania home.

This House Has Everything You Could Possibly Want In A Dream Home
Have you ever dreamed about living in a castle? Can you imagine what it would be like living inside of a brewery? Albion Castle in San Francisco, CA is both a castle and a brewery. It has been listed as a local landmark since 1973.

Can Caves Be Luxurious?
A cave home in Missouri boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry room, and even a backroom with a stage, where several famous celebrities have performed. As with Haines’s shoe house, it may be difficult to envision a cave that is expensive and extravagant. Even simple additions, however, such as expert crown moulding installation, cornice moulding installation, or the strategic use of certain wainscoting styles can completely transform the look and feel of any particular room. Crown moulding designs are relatively inexpensive and can be fashioned from a variety of different materials, including painted paper stock, plaster, plastic, foam, or wood. Dense, polyurethane mouldings hold up well in any environment, even if it’s a cave or cave home.

Buying an existing home is becoming a more accessible option, and there are a lot of different styles and luxury homes to choose from. Consider purchasing a castle-brewery turned house, or add extravagance to even the most unlikely houses with the right wainscoting styles.
