Amenity is a concept that rarely gets explained. The possible reasons that the concept just used to that kind of “residue” that remains when you’ve discussed everything that can be measured, weighed and put into monetary value. One possible explanation is this: the glory of the value of a good is the pleasure, which allows goods to achieve without additional counterclaims.

Examples of amenity values are:
Natural Beauty
Fishing rights

As seen, these delights are not totally out of touch with market economy:
It costs eg. to have a sea view, both the seller and in the form of
an increased tax base value.

In real property and lodging, amenities are any tangible or intangible benefits of a property, especially those that increase its attractiveness or value or that contribute to its comfort or convenience. Tangible amenities might include attractive guest rooms (lodging), dining, parks, swimming pools, health club facilities, party rooms, theater or media rooms, bike paths, community centers, services, or garages, for example. Intangible amenities might include pleasant views, nearby activities,
good schools (in the case of residential real estate), or a low crime rate, all of which add to the desirability of a property.
