Being a recluse can be just as satisfying a lifestyle as being a person who likes to go out with friends. If you tend to spend most of your time in your home and in your neighborhood, it would be a good idea to make sure that your home and your neighborhood provides all of the activities that you tend to enjoy or need. If you are a proud introvert and you are looking at luxury homes for sale, here are some key characteristics to look for in the home and the neighborhood.
Home video system
Home video systems are the perfect way to remain safe in any neighborhood. Not only will the video camera deter anyone who may be interested in committing a crime, it can help you to avoid unnecessary contact. If people stop by that you may not want to deal with, such as solicitors or acquaintances who tend to chat a little too long, you can screen your doorbell with the home video system. Install the system so that you can take a wireless look at the front door video camera, via your tablet, phone or computer.
Onsite or nearby food supply
Some neighborhoods, especially luxury condominium and town home communities, tend to host live-work spaces. Many of these workspaces are stores or restaurants. Find a luxury home for sale that has a grocery store or desirable food space within walking distance. This way, if you are running low on food supplies but you are not up for dealing with a major, public grocery haul, you can get a few food items and take your leave. Nearby delivery of fine cuisine also amplifies the happiness you may feel in the neighborhood.
Community-only park or garden
Every once in a while, every recluse needs to pop its head out of the sand and participate in the community. Have your real estate agent show you communities that feature their own private park or garden space. If you intend on looking for a single family home, this may be a park space in the center of the community. If you opt for a luxury condo, the rooftop deck may be set up to offer green space for residents. Make sure that the park area is closed off to the general public and only allowed to the residents who are living inside of the community. Taking a midnight walk inside of an empty, serene field or garden is just the type of outing that can make any major introvert smile.
