    Home - where

    It is home, the place where you store your most treasured possessions.

    Is 'the place' redundant above?
    Or it is for emphatic purpose?
    Thank you.

    It's necessary if you want emphasis. It makes sense without it though.
    It's two slightly different sentences, and the difference in meaning, if any, would come from the intonation, etc.
