We know you’ve heard this question before: “What makes a house a home?” But now we’re asking, “What makes a home a retreat?”

New home construction and remodeling trends in the past year have focused on creating serene spaces while supporting simpler living and convenience.

Take the master suite. Designs have gone far beyond his-and-her walk-in closets and dual vanities. Luxury homes now include copper soaking tubs, private patios and terraces. In the master suite of the lock-and-leave townhomes at 17 Green, you will find a coffee bar and mini fridge. It gives you the feel of a five-star hotel – and it’s your bedroom!

“Convenient features are a master suite must-have,” reports designer Trish Beaudet to HGTV.com. “Coffee bars complete with mini refrigerators and espresso machines give new meaning to hotel-style luxury.”

And what’s a retreat without a focus on green space and the outdoors? “Seating with a view of great green vistas” and “plenty of space for entertaining” top the 2014 list of outdoor design trends, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects.

These needs from today’s consumer are why the patios and balconies at 17 Green overlook the rolling hills of the TPC Craig Ranch golf course. 17 Green also offers golf cart access from your backyard and cozy bench seating in front of the patio fireplace, a new favorite outdoor trend this year.


According to Freshome, a design and architecture magazine: “One of the biggest factors for not using an outdoor area is either the cold or the wet; a fire pit solves one of these pickles. Wouldn’t you like to spend more evening with your loved one, gazing up at the stars in front of a nice, bone warming fire? It’s like sitting around a camp fire, and all the wonderful memories that come with it.
