The Johnson Group has always been an innovator of the finest designs and construction features that meet the needs, challenges, and demands of todays home buyers.
We have now concentrated on creating indoor/outdoor space into a very specialized use environment. This is especially important due to the wonderful climate we are blessed with in the New Smyrna Beach area. Increased enthusiasm for outdoor living is reflected in a recent poll by American Institute of Architects. Their findings show indoor/outdoor areas are by far the number one request by new home buyers followed by au pair/in-law suite and safe rooms. Our designs truly bring outside and inside together to create a symbiotic environment.
The other major “post recession” change has been our multi-generational suites, sometimes called granny suite, in-law suite, caregiver suite, or for children or parents as well as visiting relatives staying for extended periods of time.
Each suite has its own private entry with living room, dining area, kitchenette, full size bathroom, bedroom, washer/dryer and covered porch.
The sharing of costs can be a huge benefit that multi-generational homes provide. The initial cost is usually less than 10% more than a comparable typical single family home. Therefore, its additional monthly cost is usually only $150-$200 per month. Far less expensive than a second home, rental, nursing or assisted living alternatives.
Our standard “Safe Room”s are FEMA approved and are standard features on our single family homes.
In addition to these innovative concepts, our development, Portofino Estates, is the only community within Venetian Bay that provides a manned guard house, lake front/golf course, water front and conservation lots that are oversized to ensure and enhance your privacy.
