New study indicates Waterfront homes as health-beneficial properties. Maybe it’s time for a change?
Modern architecture is often linked to nature and well-being, featuring full-height glass windows, open-plan living spaces and plenty of greenery.
More often, Waterfront Homes are considered to be a prime real estate by many due to their outstanding views and locations, and according to new studies, health benefits.
These homes are not just about lifestyle anymore, but psychological distress. This happens due to the increased visibility of nature they offer. According to Michigan State university geographer, Amber L. Pearson views of water or any space that radiates blue shades are significantly associated with low levels of stress, unlike green spaces.
