Over the years, we have seen a rising trend of finished basements in new construction homes. Not only does the extra square footage boost resale value, there are also a number of benefits of buying a new home with a finished basement:

Extra Space for Gathering

Your new home should be a place where you want to spend your time with family and friends. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an extra space to watch TV, play games and entertain guests? Our basement spaces give the movie, sport and gaming crowd a defined space to enjoy Curve HD and TrueTheater Technology. Furnished with your own personal style of seating and technology attuned to your needs, you have the perfect space to have an off-the-charts Super Bowl party, Oscar viewing, or a solo viewing of your favorite golf tournament or Netflix binge-worthy series. Another benefit of having a finished basement is that there is no need to schedule childcare; the kids can play upstairs while the adults have their fun downstairs or vice versa! After all, the fun shouldn’t just be left to the kids, right?

Extend Living Quarters

Another benefit of having a finished basement in your new home is having a private extra living quarters for your guests or family members. Whether you need an extra living space for live-in family, guests, a child coming home from college to visit or even a private nanny’s suite, having a basement bedroom suite is a smart choice. Here at Shadow Creek, we also offer a recreation room and kitchenette in addition to a bedroom and three quarter bath.

More Storage is Good Storage

Many of our Shadow Creek basement homes have finished heated storage areas and unheated cement-floored crawl storage spaces, which our homebuyers absolutely love. Workshop. Wine Storage. Organize your holiday decorations or have a gift-wrapping station for birthdays; a finished basement is the extra space you won’t be able to live without!
