Finding your dream home can be overwhelming, but at the end, you’ll appreciate all the effort put together in making your dream come true. Moreover, many usually search online and on various platforms, seeking the “perfect luxury home” to invest in. But what exactly do you think makes a luxury home, anyway? Do you think it is the price, location, or even the type of building?

Let’s find out what defines a luxury home, how and where to acquire one, most especially in Lagos State.

What is a luxury home?

It’s difficult to give an exact definition of a luxury home that encases the air of affluence, because what you call a luxury home may actually not be a luxury home in another location or when defined by another person.

From a broad view, a luxury home can be said to be out of the ordinary; it signifies quality, extraordinary, unusual, classic, refinement and provides the best comfort one desires in a home. Just like beauty, luxury is said to be in the eyes of the beholder. In the world of real estate, it means the need for greater privacy, comfort, classy lifestyle, a good economic hub, excellent road network and security.

However, achieving your desired luxury home may involve lots of finance and good knowledge of real estate here in Nigeria.

What features define a luxury home?

1. Location and neighbourhood

Location is part of the main features that define luxury homes. For instance, in Lagos, most of the luxury homes are located in the major cities of the state, such as Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lekki,  Ajah, Ikeja, Magodo, among others. Meanwhile, the location of a luxury home has to be prime, pricey and aspiring in every area. Thus, in Lagos, the location of an estate or property also brings about differences in the pricing.

With such a luxurious neighborhood, it draws the attention of elites in the society to have their investment or home in such location. It also invites the attention of a few due to its price range. With this in place, luxury developers always target these prime locations to maintain the brand value.

2. High price definition

The luxury homes in Lagos are very expensive and only affordable by the moneyed class in the society. For example, a property in Banana Island can be selling for as high as N500 million and above; such is not affordable by everyone. In general, the lowest price one can pay for a luxury home begins with N50 million and increases from there. Hence, luxury home in Nigeria is for the haut monde in our society.

3. Lavish exquisite amenities

From the interior decorations to the outdoor setting are mostly incorporated with the most exquisite amenities. Luxury homes are designed with the best modern architectures, some lavish amenities like mini theaters, gym, playground for kids, walking tracks and others.

It’s quite a world-class form of security, making the area free from crimes such as kidnapping and theft.
