The high-quality features that make a house a home are crucial. In luxury properties, potential homebuyers are typically looking for more amenities than are included in most properties. Everything from the ceilings to the floors in an upscale home must include an exceptional feature. 
For the floors, many luxury homebuyers are certainly on the market for radiant floor heating. The utility solution allows a homeowner to experience a steady flow of warmth in a space that will remove the chill from any room. Many owners enjoy the feature not only because of its efficiency capabilities - it also has no mechanics or output system that requires square footage in a room. As a result, interior designers are able to use the space as they wish without having to dodge unsightly base-board heating units, vents or radiators. 
Another perk of radiant floor heating is its environmentally friendly status. The utility option delivers heat in such an efficient manner and uses energy so sparingly that even large properties with high ceilings are effectively filled with warmth without driving operational costs up. All of these features were considered when one home in Dover, Massachusetts, was being built. 
The Dover-Sherborn Patch reports that the house at 4 Betsy Lane is 7,773 square feet and features four bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The custom built home was constructed in 2011 and includes a number of high-quality amenities. Radiant floor heating is installed throughout the house to create a warm atmosphere. The open-floor plan includes a large foyer, kitchen with island and eat-in area, two-sided fireplace, living room and office. Listed at $3.295 million, the house is a luxury property and has been outfitted as such with the latest in cosmetic and structural design.
