Thinking Big—and Small: 11,000 sq. ft.

Trend: Square Footage

It’s not just the size of the home, but how the square-footage is used. More space can accommodate an expansive master suite, which may appeal to a couple or be used for additional bedrooms,which could attract multigenerational families, says Irvine-based real estate agent Michael Dunn. “It all depends on lifestyle.”

Home size and rooms that meet specific needs are the primary factors in 65% of buying decisions, according to a recent National Association of Home Builders study. So while some buyers may find everything they need in 1,000 square feet, others might require 15,000.

A Shady Canon home with canyon and golf course views, this 2008 residence contains four en suite bedrooms. The three-story home has an additional three bedrooms, nine baths, plus a main kitchen with black appliances, a prep kitchen, an office, and a wine room. The property on Golden Eagle in Irvine has an infinity pool, a spa and a nine-car garage.
