Added Benefits

Indoor pool

Bonus spaces like these will make you glad to shelter-in-place.

Hunkering down at home is the new normal. But it doesn’t have to mean sacrificing on authentic experiences. Increasingly, homes are equipped with bonus rooms that make staying in worthwhile. From meditation rooms to sports-themed recreation areas and even glitzy bowling alleys, we’ve rounded up some stellar extra spaces that are so lavish, the owners are singing “there’s no place like home.”

Tee Time

Golf simulator
The snow won’t slow down the swing for the homeowner of this space. Instead, it’s possible for him to keep practicing his game all winter long from the warmth of an at-home (or “very own”) golf simulator. In this home’s vast basement,  created a golf simulator and companion entertaining space.
