New Year, New View! – Club Sportiva, Backyard Retreats & Listing Updates

Hello 2017 - METIS Real Estate

Happy New Year! We have some exciting news as we enter 2017. Our new retail space is in progress, and we’re hoping the City of Saratoga will not delay construction any more than absolutely necessary. Mid-February is when we expect to officially open our doors but in the meantime all of you are welcome to meet us there. For those on this list, make sure to ask what’s behind the counter as we’ll always have a surprise for our biggest fans.

Next, we’re launching a new brand. It’s something we’ve been working on for the past half year and if you’re one for luxury products this is one you won’t want to miss. We took everything we learned in running METIS last year and if you can believe it, elevated the product at every turn. Stick around, we’re about to change the luxury real estate segment in 2017. More on this in the coming weeks.

Backyard Retreats

Backyard retreats. Hire professional or DIY?

Whether you call these structures “She Sheds” “Man Caves” or the “Do Not Disturb Zone,” we’re big fans of these small enclosed spaces. Who wouldn’t? They offer more usable space, are often a feature that everyone immediately loves and when the house is in complete chaos the thought of a quiet retreat just steps away often solitude enough.

Consumers have more options than ever today when it comes to acquiring a backyard shed. With many online plans home owners have the option of spending $3-5k in materials, and few back and forth trips to Home Depot and hopefully construct one over the course of a few weekends. Or if you’re not great with tools or heavy loads, hire a professional who can get things done quicker and sturdier. You are often looking at $15-20k for a basic shed, and completely bespoke models such as the one pictured for quite a bit more. A few amazing architects that we’ve had the distinct pleasure to work with is Brad Gunkel of Gunkel Architecture and Adam Mayberry of Mayberry Workshop.

Another perk about working with a professional is they usually already know the permitting process if necessary, and can guide you around the legalities of size, placement and design of these units when it comes to your residence.
