Must haves for luxury buyers in Surrey…

If you are looking to market your home to the luxury buyer in Surrey, here is the latest guide to luxury must-haves:
 
Endless hot and chilled water…
 
First on our list is a constant boiling or chilled water in the kitchen, this is a tap which will constantly provide both, gone are the days when luxury homebuyers want to boil a kettle, they can also be more economical than a conventional kettle.
 
A dressing room or two…
 
A recent study showed that 45% of modern women would choose a walk in wardrobe as the ultimate status symbol, ideally decked out with oak paneling and ideally one for him and her.
 
Music…
 
Most top end buyers will want to have a state of the art music system throughout the property, where then can control the music choice via blue tooth, and the volume.
 
His and her bathrooms…
 
For those people who have busy lives it’s not simply enough to have one en-suite bathroom, most luxury buyers will be looking for Mr and Mrs bathroom suite.
 
A wine cellar…
 
No luxury home would be complete without a wine cellar, either placed within the basement or as a small building project, with the capacity to hold about 1,500 bottles.
 
Size does count…
 
Homebuyers expect to either have their own cinema room, or at least a 108” flat screen TV with hidden all around sound system, or mirrors in the bathroom which turn into TV screens.
 
A beautiful garden…
 
Savvy buyers make sure that they buy a property with a beautiful landscaped garden fitted with automatic irrigation designed from water collection devices throughout the property.
 
Underground car parks…
 
It’s time to forget about integral garages, single, double or triple, now it’s all about designing a garage to be out of sight, underground - these are the most sought after type of garages, so that homeowners can hide their luxury collections.

Light and spacy rooms…
 
Homes that have huge light airy rooms tend to be more popular than large homes with lots of small rooms. Under-floor heating is a must, downstairs will have to home a lavish kitchen, dining area and seating for several guests as well as well appointed master bedroom suites.
 
Keeping your home safe…
 
Luxury buyers will be looking for a top of the range security system controlled by a central pad. Panic room and CCTV cameras around the grounds are also a bonus.
 
Annexe…
 
Home buyers who will need a nanny to look after the children will be looking for separate staff accommodation, an annexe or adjoining cottage that can offer a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette will be appealing.
 
Stacks of cupboard space…
 
Having stacks of storage space is really important to potential buyers who want to impress their friends with how much room they have.
