Home Grown: The Latest in Luxury Real Estate Amenities Has Residents Thinking Organic
A One-of-a-Kind Amenity Where Residents Can Pick Their Own Fruits
Sprawling swimming pools, exclusive spas, and white-glove butler service are not the only amenities buyers are now seeking out when purchasing a luxury property. With global ecology and personal wellness being such hot topics, developers and top high-end brands are thinking outside glistening indoor spaces and offering residents the chance to eat better and reduce their carbon foot print.
One property leading the way is The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, which features a one-of-a-kind edible garden where residents can pick their own fruits, vegetables and herbs to use in their homes.
As a self-sustainable ecosystem, this experiential, edible garden consists of mainly perennial vegetables, allowing for a longer lifespan, alongside both native South Eastern and tropical/subtropical flora and fauna from Central America, Caribbean and Asia.
For residents who want to take organic gardening and composting to the next level, Foodscapes Capabilities, will be able to create mini personalized edible gardens on individual terraces/balconies throughout the building starting at $500 and upwards of $10,000, helping to bring the concept of eating clean right to your door.
