How To Accommodate Young Adults Living At Home

Aaron Reid – New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty 

For many families, home has become a multigenerational living space—a place where legacies are preserved and family is celebrated. While this style of cohabitation is common throughout history, the ebbs and flows of development and population growth in many countries altered the focus towards independent living.

The tide is turning once more, as recent data reveals a resurgence of the multigenerational living trend. It’s not merely a matter of financial prudence or caregiving; it’s a rekindling of traditions and the preservation of family unity.

This shift towards multigenerational living has sparked a surge in new housing types to accommodate these families, and architects worldwide are rising to the challenge. Today, the world’s luxury homes are designed to provide a high-end lifestyle for generations to come.

America’s vast landscapes, from sprawling ranches to grand estates, provide the ideal setting for these large, inviting homes. Take Idaho’s 2766 Helen Drive in luxurious lakeside Coeur d’Alene. This one-of-a-kind mountainside contemporary masterpiece offers two master suites on the main level, a total of five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms—and even a special dog-wash station for the furriest family members.

Among the most sought-after features of multigenerational homes are spacious layouts and private living areas for each generation. From separate entrances to interconnecting suites, architects are finding creative ways to provide privacy and independence within the same property.

Of course, multigenerational living is hardly a distinctly American concept. All around the world, there are opportunities to keep loved ones close in resplendent comfort, a chance to venture beyond borders to strengthen bonds in lavish settings.

In the Cayman Islands, known for its alabaster beaches, turquoise waters, and favorable tax incentives, Bella Rocca Estate stands as a prime example of luxury multigenerational living. This magnificent 8,358-square-foot estate is positioned on an acre of stunning coastal landscape and boasts eight exquisitely appointed ensuite bedrooms, spread across three levels.

A diverse array of entertainment options is essential for multigenerational families. Bella Rocca delivers with a cinema and games room and a “Great Room” that serves as the heart of open-plan living. For relaxation and rejuvenation, there is also a spa, infinity pool, and private beach to enjoy.

On Australia’s sparkling Gold Coast, the waterfront estate known as “Huntington” provides refuge for any VIP guest or family member. With six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two powder rooms, a study, and multiple attached and detached living spaces, this home is perfect for families that grow and change over time. The meticulously landscaped grounds with a resort-style pool and gardens offer the perfect setting for family gatherings and intimate moments.

For those looking for a more urban setting, New Zealand’s 33 Scanlan Street is an approximately 15,000-square-foot warehouse conversion adaptively designed to cater to extended families. Inspired by the iconic lofts of New York City, this home’s open-plan layout gives owners a blank slate to allocate and divide as needed. A separate one-bedroom apartment is available for family members who require extra privacy.

In these lavish multigenerational estates, luxury is not a material possession; it’s an experience—a testament to the richness of life, where family bonds are forged in elegance and shared splendor.
