When you think about beauty, you think about a person who embodies it or a place that has an untouched and sometimes unreal attractiveness. You think of luxury living. Most of the time, beauty is defined as what is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Sometimes, you think of beauty as a feeling evoked because of how a certain person, place, or situation treats you.

The same is true in the world of luxury real estate. As that famous adage goes, beauty is now being decided on the details – features such as the living room, garden, kitchen, bathrooms, and everything else in between should be attractive and aesthetically pleasing to the beholder; and the beholder, in this case, are the homebuyer and property investor. Luxury properties are now being deemed of their quality to become timeless, which is a concept that goes beyond their high-end amenities, impeccable designs, or even five-star additions that you can see. Beauty, especially in luxury real estate, is now defined on how the property evokes a desire to live and flourish – that you not only call your future home a status symbol but a sensible decision towards a high quality of living.

What is luxury living all about?
For one, it’s not all price tags. While price is a significant factor, it’s by no means the only one. There are a variety of factors at play when deciding what constitutes luxury living in the Philippines. Luxury properties are mainly defined by their uniqueness and exclusivity, which raise far more value than the cost of the construction and materials alone.
A Prestigious Location and Address
The residence’s proximity to another luxury home, to the community, and to famous and storied parts of a city all contribute to the value behind a luxury investment. This is the case for trophy addresses such as New York City’s Park Avenue and Los Angeles’ Hollywood.
Being a stone’s throw away from the city’s hottest go-to destinations featuring high-end activities such as shopping districts, museums, fine dining, and centers for art is essential.
Beyond this, it counts when it satisfies the discerning crowd’s taste for panoramic views of beautiful landscapes, such as lakes, oceans, rivers, mountainsides, and countryside view
A house is a significant investment, not just financially but also emotionally. A home is a sanctuary, a personal anchor, and a statement.
If a home is a reflection of those who live in it, then architecture is the mirror that holds up this image. Here at Brittany, we place prime value on architecture as our way of bringing out the beauty of a space. From the roof to the windowsill and doorknobs, every aspect of a Brittany creation is crafted with utmost passion and skill, all to give true beauty to those that may live in it.

Luxury properties aren’t just pleasant to look at; they are also works of art, capable of stirring emotion from anyone who beholds and experiences it.
This form of expression and the expertise involved naturally form something beautiful—something that we all want to keep for a lifetime. Because of this, homes that make a unique or aesthetically pleasing statement will always be valued much higher than those with cookie-cutter designs.
Structurally and functionally sound
Outstanding design maximizes the space and have every bit of the property serve its purpose unhindered.
The shape of a house serves the everyday needs of the dwellers, while the building materials are chosen for their specific properties. The properties of those building materials, in turn, must influence and work together with the specific purpose of the house, resulting in a stronger and more functional home.
Safety and Security
Indeed, nothing beats sound sleep endowed by peace of mind. Having CCTV and electric fences installed in a gated community safeguarded by roaming patrols is top priority in quiet and peaceful neighborhoods.
Sustainability also sets luxury developments apart from the rest of the pack as it equates to delivering enduring value. To be sustainable means to be occupied both now and for the foreseeable future, delivering an acceptable return to the investors. As such, private enclaves equipped with garbage disposal, materials recovery and other sustainability systems ensure the preservation of their well-manicured properties and the lush surroundings, including the flora and fauna it also supports.
