Fitness Might Be the Next Big Focus for Homebuyers

Finding ways to stay healthy at home has become a major priority during this time of social distancing. Virtual workouts via YouTube and fitness apps have helped turn many of our living rooms into makeshift gyms. Some have opted outside, choosing to feel the burn in the backyard or incorporate daily jogs around the block into their daily routines. And while these at-home modifications are adequate for now, many are considering upgrading their home fitness facilities for the future.

With health and wellness being a major focus for everyone, homes that cater to a healthy lifestyle may have more value in the eyes of homebuyers. Having access to the proper equipment to stay active and fit from home is a luxury that has become more important than ever, especially in these unprecedented times. The privacy to exercise in your own space, away from other people and potential exposure to germs, is an added bonus that could mean the difference between two listings for buyers.

Several homes within the Denver Metro real estate market that are listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) feature fitness centers.

Nestled in the heart of Denver’s luxurious Country Club neighborhood, 120 Humboldt Street, listed by LIV SIR brokers Trish Bragg and Maggie Armstrong, is an enchanting storybook Tudor-style home with modern amenities. Originally designed in 1912, this property is a well-preserved historic home with gorgeous updates that blend classic styles with fresh designs. The home gym in this house has mounted mirrors so that you can ensure your form is perfect and offers enough room to keep a treadmill and stationary bike, and still have space to stretch.

Just south, in Cherry Hills Village, one of Denver’s most prestigious neighborhoods, another amazing home with a focus on fitness awaits a buyer. 1013 East Belleview Avenue, which is listed by LIV SIR brokers Delroy Gill and Stuart Crowell, is a stunning home with Mediterranean-modern touches. Aside from the home’s beautifully crafted interior design and impressive bonus features such as the five-car collector’s garage, resort-style pool and spa, wine cellar, home theater, and game room, this house caters to health-conscious individuals. The gym has ample room for all the equipment one would need to exercise comfortably. Homebuyers can even mount a television in the fitness center to make getting a workout in more fun.

In Greenwood Village, 5811 South Forest Street listed by LIV SIR brokers, Cindy Oakes and Terry Oakes, is a classic home with special features for homebuyers who love to entertain and be entertained. Watch a movie at home in the media room, sip your favorite vintage in the wine cellar, or host guests in the open concept kitchen and living areas. When it comes time to get active, choose from spending time in the home’s gym or hitting the walking trail located outside of the house. A spiral staircase descending from the master bedroom leads you to the fitness center in the lower level. Here you can store a weight rack and other essential equipment for an adequate workout.

Having a space that encourages wellness makes staying active that much easier. Let the real estate professionals at LIV SIR help you find a home that will cater to your healthy lifestyle.
