Detached Buyers with kids—or who hope to have kids soon—should be aware of certain kid-friendly characteristics. Do you know all the things you should seek? Andrew Patton comprehends detached homes in McLean.
You’d be amazed at how many balls your kids will lose with even a gentle slope. But a steep hill will take the fun out of any skateboarding or soccer your children want to do. For this reason, a parent or parent-to-be may prefer a flat and level lot.
While bonus rooms and basements are nice for corralling rambunctious children, they’re not so best choice of for tykes who have to be constantly supervised.
An open-floor-plan or a great room with the kitchen, dining, and family room all in one large space is a good choice for some families. This gives children room to play, but keeps them supervised.
