Deciding where everything goes in a new house is like solving a life-sized puzzle. What goes in this drawer, what goes in that nook, and why did I even keep this box of stuff? Perhaps that’s why storage is so desirable. There’s comfort in knowing that everything has its place. But attractive, built-in storage can be hard to find. To make the puzzle a little easier, here are six homes for sale with unique storage designs that are ready to hold all your stuff!
Dream office: $299,990, 2877 Econ Landing Blvd., Orlando, FL 32825
Thinking of taking on a side hustle? You’ll probably need a dedicated workspace. This East Orlando home’s loft area makes a nice office, complete with a framed-in desk and corkboard. (And easy access to the kitchen downstairs for a quick snack!) Plus, this townhome sits in a quiet community with a pool, playground, and pond.
Lovely laundry: $699,000, 4059 Falkirk Lane, Houston, TX 77025
Living in this charming bungalow gives you quick access to run or cycle on the Brays Bayou Greenway Trail. Or, if you prefer to exercise indoors, you can drop the kids off at Little Gym and head to the local gym to work up a sweat — both are within half a mile. Of course, that active lifestyle creates lots of laundry. Throw a load in the washer and dryer (hidden under cleverly designed cabinets) and then cook up a healthy meal in the home’s sunny kitchen.
A Cali convertible: $1.05 million, 2793 Dos Lomas, Fallbrook, CA 92028
This five-bedroom home uniquely blends Cape Cod, farmhouse, and contemporary styles. You’ll enjoy hand-scraped wood floors, a chef’s kitchen with butcher block and granite countertops, a master suite with built-in wardrobe organizers, and a parklike backyard spanning more than 2 acres. And don’t overlook the home’s thoughtful details, like sliding barn doors that hide a built-in media center.
Drinks on the house: $1.499 million, 1925 Casablanca St., Danville, CA 94506
Whether you’re coming home after a day at the office or a stroll along the nearby Iron Horse Regional Trail, this charmer will make you smile. Mix up a few cocktails at the wet bar; the built-in seating (with storage!) is perfect for an impromptu gathering. With five bedrooms, extra-high ceilings, a courtyard with a fireplace, and a cozy chef’s kitchen, this home is practically begging to make your life more comfortable.
Organization with a view: $1.999 million, 1072 N. 1450 East, Orem, UT 84097
The best perk of this stunning modern home might just be the mountain views from nearly every room. But we’ll give top billing to the walk-in master closet. Those built-ins would make even the most discerning personal organizer swoon! The six-bedroom home also boasts a large gourmet kitchen and an outdoor patio and pool. It’s your own little hideaway at the mouth of Provo Canyon, but with the conveniences of the city just a short drive away.
Your organized corner of the city: $2.595 million, 114 W. 27th St. #4S, New York, NY 10001
Nowhere is space more valuable than in New York, NY. And at 1,850 square feet, this two-bedroom condo is definitely luxurious. The living room features a custom, floor-to-ceiling Grange bookcase with a sliding ladder, plus a media center with hidden storage. Five oversized windows flood the space with sunlight. There’s even room for a 160-bottle wine refrigerator. If that’s still not enough, the home comes with shared storage space in the entry hall and padlocked storage in the basement. Best of all, boutique living in Chelsea means proximity to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and eateries like Lupulo and Raymi.
