Feel the Burn by Working Out at Home
Exercise both your body and mind within the confines of your next home.
We’re all well-aware that exercise is important for overall health and mental well-being, and because of social distancing it is more important than ever to practice self-care for stress management and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. During these unprecedented times, having access to a gym from the comfort of your home has become quite a luxury for any homeowner.
Here are five examples of Coldwell Banker properties from across the country that can provide easy access to an in-home gym and inspire heart-pumping workouts.
Scenic views of the adjacent golf course, well-lit rooms and a spacious open floor plan await you at this Mediterranean-style home in northern California. And, the home gym is sure to offer a great reprieve from the workday. “It’s not often you are able to place your home gym on the main level and that makes this property unique, because you can enjoy the views of the outdoors while working out on a wide range of equipment,” notes listing agent Frank Grengo. Outside, the property offers a private, center courtyard oasis for entertaining and enjoying time with the family, along with a large patio space and balcony off the rear of the home, while the inside presents buyers with warm and inviting main living areas and a spacious master bedroom suite with Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and double walk-in closets.

Located on a fenced lot which is surrounded by mature trees, this home has privacy, yet is within a short drive to downtown Denver. The main floor offers dual master suites, as well as an Au Pair / guest suite on the lower level.
