First off - this is not an announcement! We love working together (more to come on that in a later blog post) but at this point in time we love having our own homes and DO NOT plan to move in together any time soon.  
 
There are lots of names for this living arrangement: in-law suites, accessory apartments, mother-daughter homes or multi-generational living.  Homes with a separate apartment, including kitchen and bathroom but with a single main entrance are rising in popularity as many people are looking for homes that keep family members close, but not too close.  
 
This style home is great as it can accommodate either aging parents or young adults just starting out, as well as the primary family.  Homeowners can also share expenses and keep an eye on family members who may require extra care - whether that is a grandparent caring for young children or an adult caring for their parents.  With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why one in five Americans are living in multi-generational homes - a 30% increase in 15 years. 
 
We currently have two listings that offer multi-generational living, both in beautiful Boonton Township.  3 Meadowbrook Rd is a contemporary style home with a magazine-worthy primary suite and amazing outdoor space.  The apartment is connected to the home through a hallway by the kitchen - truly giving the feel of a separate space. 
 
40 Birchwood Lane is nestled in one of Boonton Township’s most family-friendly neighborhoods. Beautiful landscaping, a large lot and a hot tub are among its outdoor amenities. Inside, the Colonial-style home has gorgeous wood floors, two fireplaces and plus four bedrooms/ 2.5 baths in the main living area. Off the main entry is the door to the separate apartment and it is truly an oasis with an open-concept and high-end finishes.  
 
If you’re interested in exploring a multi-generational living situation, give us a call.  We’ve learned a lot about this set up and can help talk you through any questions!
