WHAT IS A LEGACY HOME?
A legacy1 home is most often an expansive home, large enough to accommodate an extended family and guests, with features, furnishings, and décor reflecting the tastes and ambitions of the owner. This is unlike a typical summer cottage, bungalow, or cabin, which only needs sufficient space to accommodate the owner on personal getaways. As for location, the only constraints are the owner’s preference, and conditions necessary to build the home, stock it with furnishings, and arrange access to guests—which today means that a legacy home can be located just about anywhere.
