Whether you have an in-law moving in to save money or an adult child returning after losing a job, you’ll appreciate a growing line of new homes marketed to multi-generational families. Here are some of the features you can find in this new generation of homes:
An attached one-bedroom suite with a private living area, bathroom and kitchenette. The suite has a separate entrance, its own garage and a locking door between it and the main house.
A separate guest house.
Two master bedrooms, so adults can share the homes.
Multi-generational configurations that work best focus on privacy and accessibility. Look for a builder that uses universal design products, which provide accessibility for people of all ages and abilities. KB Home, Toll Brothers Inc., Lennar Corporation and Pulte Group Inc. are among the builders offering multi-generational homes with second master bedrooms, kitchenettes and separate entrances.
