Artisan Homes are masterful blends of comfort, functionality, and luxury. Each home brings something new to the market, whether it is the builder’s creativity or the designer’s unique perspective. In 2023, homes are becoming more and more of our safe spaces, places not only to live, but also to work, play, party, exercise. And every homeowner wants their own personalized spaces that fit their lifestyle. Follow along as we tour some brand-new recreational spaces in the fall 2023 Artisan Homes.
No more driving out to the driving range! If you’re a golfer, you need to experience the luxury of a golf simulator in your home. Its own separate room, a golf simulator lets you practice one of your favorite hobbies from the comfort of your own home. And not only is it a great way to hone your skills, it is also perfect for hosting! Located in the lower level of Artisan Home 2 by Chamberlain Homes, this golf simulator is right next to the wet bar and private guest space, so hosting your friends is not only fun, but easy—and a priority.
If golf isn’t your thing, that’s just fine! The homeowners of Artisan Home 8 by Ridge Construction stayed true to their Minnesotan heritage and added a hockey shooting area in the lower level of their home. In this unique sports area, the kids can practice before the big game, or the parents and their friends can spend a fun evening trying out a few shots. A one-of-a-kind recreation addition like this hockey shooting area will provide hours of fun for friends and family.
But sports aren’t the only kind of games in Artisan Homes! Remodeled Artisan Home R15 by Ispiri also features a state-of-the-art billiards room. Whether it’s a chilly fall afternoon or you’re just looking for something to do with friends, billiards and board games are always the way to go! Take a look inside the gorgeous billiards area on the fall’s Artisan Home Tour for ideas on how to spend your evenings in.
An indoor sport court like this one found in Artisan Home 7 by Gonyea Custom Homes is the perfect way to keep up your skills and stay active during the winter months. With a painted floor and basketball hoop, this sport court is great for pick-up games and drilling your free throw. But it also provides endless entertainment for the kids, with a closet to store balls, toys, scooters, jump ropes—or even an indoor trampoline. And as a sport court provides plenty of wide-open space, the adults in the house can use it for cardio exercise when the kids are busy.
But perhaps the best way to stay active in your own home is building a customized gym. An in-home gym or exercise room can be tailored to your needs, whether you want space for yoga mats, a wall of free weights, or floor-to-ceiling mirrors, like you will find in Home R15. An in-home gym should encourage you to stay active, which is why the builders will personalize it to your every need or desire. It is a space for you to relax, breathe, and free yourself from the worries of the day.
