HPW Luxury | 6 Desirable Features Found in HPW Luxury Homes

In and around the Triangle area, there are several beautiful luxury listings available for sale. What exactly differentiates these properties from the standard market? Is it the square footage, the features, or the technology? Some would say it is all of the above. Ultimately, luxury buyers are not looking at the price tag in their search for their next dream home but the amazing amenities that come with the property. Here are the top 6 must-have features in luxury homes!

1. Indoor / Outdoor living

Indoor/outdoor living seamlessly extends your home's great room or dining quarters. This trend tends to keep cohesion in design from the interior to the exterior of your home. Typically indoor/ outdoor living has always been a primal commodity when searching for a new home. With the new normal consisting of being at your humble abode more these days, the amenity has become a necessity. What makes an outdoor living space luxurious is the ability to provide comfort through all seasons while also allotting multiple entertainment options. High-end features include retracting screened porches, outdoor kitchens, cabanas, and sometimes a type of water feature. This CBHPW luxury listing checks off each box on the list! With its large covered porch and a wood fireplace, the immaculate outdoor kitchen has a top-of-the-line grill station, jacuzzi, and extensive acreage for sporting events or games. One thing for sure is that you may yearn to host any occasion with this property as your next home. To view more of this listing, click here.  

2. Theatre Room 

Entertainment becomes the next level when a luxury property contains an in-home theater. The ability to bring the ultimate cinematic experience to your fingertips is a sought amenity many buyers search for when hunting for their next home. What makes an in-home theater top-notch is its ability to incorporate features similar to an actual movie theater. This includes a top-of-the-line av-system, projector, large screens, recessed lighting, and comfortable loungers. The goal of the theater room is to immerse yourself in what's on the screen, whether that be the newest megahit movie or the exciting rival sports game. The cinema room pictured above is from none other than one of our CBHPW luxury listings. This glorious in-home theater offers stadium seating, a high-tech projector, and even mimics the groovy movie theater carpet. To view more of this property, click here. 

3. Large Garages

The standard two-car garage does not cut it for luxury properties. Buyers are looking for substantial space when envisioning the housing of their precious automobiles. Typically, luxury properties have at least a 3-car garage! To any car buff, the garage is not just a space for storing your vehicle. This part of the property could be turned into a luxurious showroom, man cave, or workshop. This beautiful CBHPW luxury property comes with a three-car garage with gorgeous rustic wood garage doors. To view more of this property, click here.  

4. Intricate Ceiling Designs

Raised ceilings and other intricate ceiling styles are quite the fanbase for luxury homes. A room turns from basic to compelling when there is a ceiling feature that adds depth, sophistication, and style. In most luxury dwellings, at least one space must contain a styled ceiling. One of these rooms can be the living room, sitting room, primary bedrooms, and or dining rooms. What exactly are some styles of these ceilings? They are cathedral, tray, beamed, suspended, and coffered. One would love to have any of these exquisite designs in their home!  For example, in this CBHPW luxury listing above. The sitting room contains a beautiful coffered ceiling. The coffered ceiling consists of sunken panels accented by molding, creating a waffle-like appearance. What works well in this room is the brilliant addition of recessed lighting. For more on this property click here

5. Massive Walk-In Closets

Typically an owner of a luxury home tends to live a complete life of luxury. Meaning everything about them is high-end, like their fashion sense. Closets in a luxury home are an extension of the main room and need to boast space and means of organization. Closets these days are not just for hanging clothes. They can be an area to lounge in after using the spa bathroom or a place to put on that fashion show after shopping in the streets of London. For sure, luxury home buyers are looking for closets that encompass organization and can show off their beautiful wardrobe. In this CBHPW luxury home, the primary closet is genuinely massive. This closet incorporates different levels of custom built-in shelving and an island dresser to accommodate all buyers' attire needs. To view more of this property, click here.

6. Relaxing Spa baths

When buyers search for their next home, kitchens and bathrooms are the most focused rooms, which is why main bathrooms in luxury homes are genuinely upping the ante in their need to give that spa-like aura. Features include a jacuzzi bathtub fit for a king, a large walk-in shower that doubles as a steam room, neutral colors, beautiful stone or tile, and lots of space for minimal clutter. In this CBHPW luxury listing, this bathroom truly exuberates comfort and relaxation. The large window allows natural light to encase the room, making the white pop against the darker grays. The unity in neutral colors creates a calming sensation. One can relax in the free-standing tub or use the shower with multi-shower heads in this bathroom. To view more, click here

Urban Farms and Community Gardens in Raleigh

Raleigh Urban Farms
As you spend time in the area searching for Raleigh homes for sale, you'll want to get a sense of the values that those in this community share. This city is positively blossoming with urban agriculture, and there is no better example of the townspeople's dedication to permaculture and the great outdoors than The Well Fed Community Garden. Our real estate agents would be thrilled to show you how this garden uses a farm-to-fork approach to feed the people of Raleigh.

Enriching Raleigh From Farm to Fork

The City of Raleigh understands how much of a positive social, economic and environmental impact the presence of agriculture has in an urban setting. The Well Fed Community Garden is one of the many efforts that they support throughout the year. This plot of land is home to an acre and a half of vegetables, fruits, herbs, fungi, and other plants, as well as honey bees and chickens.

The Well Fed Community Garden was purchased in 2012 by the owners of the Irregardless Café. Since the 1970s, Irregardless has been cooking up food for the residents of Raleigh that is locally sourced through sustainability initiatives. Though meat, fish and poultry meals are available, their menu is crafted for vegan and vegetarian enjoyment as well.

Their rooftop solar thermal panels use renewable energy to heat their water supply, and the Well Fed Community Garden provides the local ingredients that have made Irregardless Café's delicious options a popular choice for any taste. Although most of the harvest from the Garden is served to customers at Irregardless, 20 percent of that which is grown is donated to the volunteers and neighbors that help this community thrive.

Lovin' Spadefuls

If you purchase one of the Raleigh homes for sale near Athens Drive, you'll soon discover that the Well Fed Community Garden is always buzzing with activity. Home to an annual blackberry festival, the Garden also hosts frequent garden workshops, cooking classes, yoga sessions, and art lessons. You can even help enrich the city and your own life by volunteering throughout the year.

To dig into the heart of The Well Fed Community Garden, our real estate agents encourage you to sign up for the Lovin' Spadefuls experience. Small groups of two to six can enjoy an intimate two-hour tour through the Garden in which you'll explore the grounds and learn all about the bounty that this amazing acre provides. You can also choose to include a lunch at the Irregardless Café after your experience to get a true taste of the community's efforts.

To learn more about the community gardens and urban agriculture near Raleigh homes for sale, contact us. If you'd like to buy or sell a home in the area, one of our real estate agents would be happy to help you!

Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Cary Office Packs Thousands of Boxes for our Troops

Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston has always been committed to supporting our local community as well as our military men and women who serve our great nation.

Our CBHPW Cary office chose to give this holiday season by supporting active duty military in conjunction with the nonprofit group Military Missions in Action (MMIA). The office took part in an MMIA event called "Fill the Footlocker."  The entire staff pitched in and they filled a mind-blowing 1,377 boxes which were full of gifts, supplies and nonperishable items that will be delivered directly to our military overseas. 

CBHPW has been affiliated with MMIA for years, as MMIA is an HPW Foundation sponsored charity, to help give back to our military in numerous ways. If you would like to donate to this cause and help our service members you can go to https://www.militarymissionsinaction.org/fill-the-footlocker to see a full list of needed supplies or to make a monetary donation.

Turkeys for the Triangle Donates 2,500 Thanksgiving Turkeys

Our first Turkeys for the Triangle distribution event was a tremendous success!

Box trucks, cargo vans, pickup trucks and SUVs lined up at our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston corporate office to collect and deliver more than 2,500 frozen turkeys to nonprofit and military organizations across Central North Carolina.

Despite the rain and cold temperatures, it was a great day to Help People Win, a commitment our company founder and chairman and Turkeys for the Triangle founder holds near and dear.

"I'll tell you what, it's one of those things," said Don Walston. "It's hard to describe the benefit when you see someone who really appreciates what you're doing for them– it's a– I don't know how to describe it but it's a warm feeling."

A five-year partner of our Turkeys for the Triangle program, Butterball generously donated 1,500 of the 2,500 turkeys we handed out this week. 

Turkeys for the Triangle will match its record-breaking donation of last year's 4,500 turkeys to nourish those in need this holiday season.

Thank You For Making Turkeys for the Triangle A Success!

Our 2017 Turkeys for the Triangle program donated a record-breaking 4,500 turkeys to feed more than 25,000 people this holiday season thanks to the generosity of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team and Butterball, LLC.

From service members at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and Camp Lejeune to neighbors in need in our local communities supported by nonprofits like Raleigh Rescue Mission and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, our Turkeys for the Triangle birds served to anchor holidays meals and bring cheer in trying times.  

We "tossed" out our second and final turkey donation with help from the U.S. Veterans Corps and our kind agents and staff earlier this week and capped off the annual outreach effort today with our exciting raffle drawing at Johnson Lexus of Raleigh.

"I'll tell you what, it's one of those things," said Don Walston, company founder and chairman, as he spoke about the outreach effort. "It's hard to describe the benefit when you see someone who really appreciates what you're doing for them– it's a– I don't know how to describe it, but it's a warm feeling."

Walston began Turkeys for the Triangle nearly 15 years ago after hearing a radio story about a turkey donation effort the "Godfather of Soul" James Brown began in his hometown of Augusta, Ga. "As I rode along listening to the radio, I got to thinking—if James Brown can giveaway 1,000 turkeys, well then, we could too. As we've gotten into this, we've learned that a number of people don't get to have turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas and it's truly shocking. Our goal is to grow this program to give away 10,000 or 15,000 turkeys each year."

To date, Coldwell Banker Howard Perry Walston's Turkeys for the Triangle program has donated over 30,000 turkeys to feed more than 150,000 people during the holidays.

Gobbling with Gratitude

Our Turkeys for the Triangle program would not be possible without support from a number of local organizations and people.

We've had the tremendous privilege of partnering with Garner-based Butterball, LLC to expand our turkey donations for the past four years. A dedicated program partner, the charitable company donated 1,500 of its sizable Butterball brand birds to Turkeys for the Triangle this year as part of its annual Thanksgiving outreach efforts. "Addressing the needs of the communities where our employees live and work is part of our core values of giving, and through our participation in Turkeys for the Triangle, we are able to serve families in need in the area we call home," said Kerry Doughty, company president and CEO.

Johnson Lexus of Raleigh is another long-standing Turkeys for the Triangle partner we value greatly. Year-after-year, Johnson Lexus of Raleigh has offered up a valuable one-year lease on a new Lexus sedan as the grand prize for our Turkeys for the Triangle. This extraordinary prize is always a crowd favorite!

And, last, but never least, we must pay tribute to our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate agents and staff, especially annual top ticket salesman Tim McBrayer. We cannot fully express the gratitude we hold for every one of you. Your support of Turkeys for the Triangle is outstanding.

Want to know who won?

Wondering who won the one-year lease on a new 2018 Lexus? Benjamin Passwaters is your man! He will soon get behind the wheel of a new Lexus sedan courtesy of our Turkeys for the Triangle partner Johnson Lexus of Raleigh.

HPW Pig Out For The Cure Raises More Than $23,800 For UNC Lineberger

'Cue, chicken, and charity! We're excited to share that Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston recently raised more than $23,800 for the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center as part of our Pig Out For the Cure fundraiser and commitment to Helping People Win.

"Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston and its team members are true friends of UNC Lineberger, and their support makes it possible for us to provide the people of North Carolina with the best cancer care today, and to conduct the research that will lead to even better treatments," said Martin Baucom, UNC Lineberger's senior executive director of development & communications. 

Organized by our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices, our real estate sales associates sought out sponsors and sold barbecue plates to raise the money for the UNC Lineberger's Patient and Family Resource Center. The donation will bring our Pig Out For the Cure program's total contribution to UNC Lineberger to nearly $75,000 since 2010.

"We're very grateful to the many businesses and generous people who supported our Pig Out For The Cure fundraiser," said Randy Cox, sales manager and broker-in-charge of our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro offices. "Our team prepped and handed out more than 700 barbeque plates and had a great time doing it. We're proud that our effort will help to advance UNC Lineberger's mission to support those facing cancer."

Turkeys for the Triangle is Now Underway

On your mark, get set… GOBBLE! It's time again for our annual Turkeys for the Triangle fundraiser to feed our neighbors in need this holiday season.

Working with pre-selected area non-profit and military organizations, Turkeys for the Triangle is committed to donating 4,500 frozen turkeys to feed more than 20,000 people this Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

Started by our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Founder and Chairman Don Walston nearly 15 years ago, Turkeys for the Triangle has donated more than 28,000 turkeys to anchor holiday meals for more than 120,000 food-insecure people.

"It breaks my heart to know that there are families in our local communities who struggle to put food on the table, especially during the holidays when so many of us are celebrating with special meals," said Walston. "Turkeys for the Triangle is our answer to that sad reality; it is a way our company, our clients, and our kind neighbors can give to the greater good, to feed those in need."

Now through Friday, Dec. 14, our real estate agents and staff will sell Turkeys for the Triangle raffle tickets to gather funds to support our holiday turkey donations in mid-November and mid-December.

HPW Hurricane Relief Efforts

Just over a week ago, with heavy hearts for Houston and our Texas neighbors, we announced our HPW Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive.

With the generosity of our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston real estate team and the kind Triangle community, we were able to collect $3,600 and match it dollar-for-dollar through our HPW Foundation for an overall donation of $7,200 to benefit the:

"Our HPW real estate team showed up to the plate for Texas and all those affected by Harvey," said Matt Horton, HPW Foundation President and Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Director of Marketing. "Their generous donations allowed us to raise more than $7,000 to help numerous nonprofit organizations continue their relief efforts."

Hurricane Irma

Today, we watch with great trepidation as Hurricane Irma approaches Florida with a projected path leading up through Georgia, Alabama and into Tennessee. We know this powerful storm will cause major destruction and devastation as it moves along leaving even more of our nation's neighbors in need.

Our HPW Foundation plans to meet those needs head on and will be announcing additional relief efforts after Irma departs. "We do our best to Help People Win in all ways, in all circumstances," added Horton. "Once Irma's winds settle, we will announce a plan to provide support to the communities and people who need it the most."
