Your Forever Home: Embracing Living in Place with Otero Signature Homes

June 19, 2024

Creating a home that not only reflects your style but also supports your needs through every stage of life is a journey that requires foresight, innovation, and a deep understanding of the principles of "living in place." At Otero Signature Homes, a leading custom home builder based in Cleveland, Ohio, we believe your home should be your forever sanctuary. It's not just about aesthetics; it's about designing spaces that adapt to your evolving needs, ensuring comfort, safety, and independence as you age.


What is the Philosophy Behind Living in Place?

The living in place philosophy transcends the traditional concept of aging in place by focusing on creating a home environment that is equipped to support your lifestyle throughout the years. This approach is about more than just accessibility; it's about crafting spaces that promote autonomy, engagement, and a higher quality of life. Otero Signature Homes prides itself on integrating functionality with luxury, ensuring that every design element serves a purpose without compromising on style.


Redefining Home Design

Our commitment to redefining living in place has led us to embrace innovative design features and smart technology that cater to both current luxuries and future necessities. What are some of the key elements incorporated in a living in place home design? 

Zero-Entry Thresholds

Gone are the days of step-ups and tripping hazards. Our homes feature zero-entry thresholds, ensuring ease of movement from outdoors to indoors, making them accessible for all ages and mobility levels.

Open Floor Plans

We design our homes with open, spacious floor plans that not only enhance the sense of freedom and flow within the space but also accommodate mobility aids, making navigation effortless and social gatherings a pleasure.

Wide Doorways

Every doorway in an Otero home is designed to be wide and welcoming, facilitating easy access to every room and allowing for the smooth passage of wheelchairs and walkers. Even in the image you see, the single step in the garage is critical in the design and integrity of the home's function, but it is easily adapted to wheelchair and walker accessibility with the installation of a ramp.

Curbless Showers

Our bathrooms can be  equipped with curbless showers, eliminating barriers and making daily routines safer and more convenient. This feature not only caters to practical needs but also contributes to a sleek, modern aesthetic. 



Living with Purpose, Meaning, and Growth

At Otero Signature Homes, we understand that your home is more than just a place to live; it's a space for growth, joy, and fulfillment. By integrating living in place features into our designs, we empower you to plan for a future that is as vibrant and meaningful as today. Our homes are crafted to adapt, enabling you to enjoy your independence and maintain an active, engaged lifestyle for years to come.

Your forever home awaits, designed with not just the present but the future in mind. Embrace the luxury of living in place with Otero Signature Homes, where every detail is tailored to ensure your home evolves with you, supporting a life filled with purpose and possibility.
