When searching for a new home, many factors influence where and how you want to live—from location and price, to choosing the features that are important to you now, and in the future. One feature that can truly transform a home and elevate your lifestyle (pun intended!) is an in-home private elevator, offering added convenience, safety, and more years to enjoy your home. 

Watch the video below to hear EYA homeowners explain why an in-home elevator is important for them and learn more about the benefits this feature can offer.

Added Convenience

When deciding if an in-home elevator is the right option for you and your family, consider the increased convenience that it can provide. In addition to transporting family members and guests, homeowners appreciate the ease of moving groceries, strollers, luggage, and other heavy items with ease. 

“Initially, I didn’t think we’d be using the elevator very much, but having the convenience of the elevator driving in the garage with groceries and taking them up two floors to the kitchen or taking the kids, coming home from college, taking all their luggage up to the fourth floor on the elevator - makes it so much easier.” – Michael C., Chevy Chase Lake homeowner

Increased Safety

Whether an elevator is for your own mobility or for the mobility of relatives or visitors, an elevator can make it easier and safer to get to each level of the home. It can also provide an increased sense of security to anyone who has difficulty going up and down stairs. 

"If I have my father who is elderly or visitors who are not as mobile, it goes from the ground floor all the way to the top floor, unrestricted on any level and you can get easy access whether you're limited in your mobility and that's very, very attractive." – Kevin E., Grosvenor Heights homeowner

Ability to Age in Place

For empty nesters, an in-home elevator may help you to stay in a home you love longer and to continue to enjoy an active urban lifestyle. Otherwise, to avoid a home with stairs the choices may be limited to condominiums, apartments, or single-level homes. 

While shopping for a new home, many folks realize they want (or need) more space than a typical condominium offers. A new EYA townhome with private elevator provides an ideal combination of living space with ample square footage and convenience, often situated in a location that offers walking distance to neighborhood shops, parks, and public transportation. 

“We knew what it was going to be like to age in place, and we wanted to be able to age in place in a home that we actually owned and lived in without somebody taking care of us. And we know we can do it here.” – Lenore P., Grosvenor Heights homeowner


Over the years, many EYA neighborhoods have featured in-home private elevators. Not only does it offer a level of convenience, but it’s also a way for homeowners to plan options for the future. Whether it comes to relatives with lesser mobility coming to visit, an unforeseen change of circumstance, or a seamless way to move about your home, an in-home elevator can expand the ways you'll enjoy your new home.
