Model homes and condos are a different breed. Custom homebuilders and developers are showing how much more important this niche has become by creating the illusion that a pet lives on the premises of their show homes. Toll Brothers, a custom builder of both single- and multifamily housing based in Horsham, Penn., stages swank models with plush pet beds and fancy dog showers that feature designer tiles. ICI Homes designed a “pet condo” under a stairway, a place that typically represents dead space, in one of their model houses. The area measures 4 by 4 feet, has a large opening with a gate, and room for a bed, bowls, light, and electric outlet. “The outlet can be used to plug in one of the newer self-cleaning litter boxes,” suggests sales assistant Sabrina Bosarge. Staging expert Kristie Barnett, founder of Expert Psychological Training in Nashville, Tenn., says builders arent risking much with these add-ons because they can easily be reimagined when needed—a shower can be used to rinse off small childrens feet or water plants, and a space under the stairs can become a play area or storage space.
Modern architecture covers a wide time span, beginning in the 1920s, and encompasses subniches such as Bauhaus and Art Deco. Even under this broad rubric, contemporary homes are rare enough in his area that Mangas—a member of the National Association of REALTORS® 30 Under 30 class of 2014—has built an expansive farm spanning a whopping 180-mile radius around D.C. Mangas recognizes that in parts of the country where modern architecture is common, he might not stand out like he does now: “If I were in Los Angeles, I wouldn‘t have as much traction.”
