Right-sizing is not about learning to live in a smaller house. It’s improving one’s quality of life through efficiency, design, and a sense of space. Right-sizing doesn’t compromise lifestyle, it elevates it."
Carmel, IN (PRWEB) December 27, 2011
Pocket neighborhoods are gaining popularity in housing markets across the country to meet the growing trend of right-sizing, according to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal. New home communities such as Inglenook in Carmel, IN, are meeting this demand with floor plans that concentrate on the areas of the home where the family spends the most amount of time.
“Right-sizing is not about learning to live in a smaller house. It’s improving one’s quality of life through efficiency, design, and a sense of space. Right-sizing doesn’t compromise lifestyle, it elevates it,” says Ross Chapin, award-winning architect and author of the best selling book, Pocket Neighborhoods.
Pocket neighborhoods of cottage style homes are attracting buyers who are also looking for an improved quality of life beyond their house. The eco-friendly design of pocket neighborhoods is meeting the growing buyer demand for energy efficiency and responsible land use.
“What differentiates pocket neighborhoods is that the philosophy of efficient, comfortable, and livable design spills out from the home and into the entire neighborhood. Every part of the outdoor space is meant to be livable and promote a sense of shared community,” says Casey Land of Land Development and Building, the company that is developing Inglenook. Inglenook is the only pocket neighborhood offering new construction, cottage style homes designed by Ross Chapin in the entire Midwest.
“We see a clear future for expanding this type of development into other markets as the demand for right-sizing continues. We are finding that it is not just about buyers who want a smaller home. Pocket neighborhoods fulfill the needs of buyers who are reshaping the quality of their entire life and rethinking priorities,” says Land.
