When it comes to choosing a new home, one term you might frequently encounter is “townhouse.” But what exactly is a townhouse, and why might it be the perfect choice for your next home? In this blog post, we’ll explore the characteristics of townhouses, their benefits, and why they are becoming an increasingly popular housing option.

Defining a Townhouse

A townhouse, sometimes referred to as a townhome, is a type of residential property that often shares one or more walls with adjacent properties. Unlike a detached single-family home, townhouses are typically part of a row of similar homes. They are designed to maximise space.

Key Features of Townhouses

  1. Bordering Walls: Townhouses are built independently but often abut the neighbouring dwelling, which can help with heating and cooling efficiency.
  2. Multiple Floors: Most townhouses are multi-storey, often with living spaces on the ground floor and bedrooms on upper levels. This vertical layout allows for efficient use of space. Sometimes, park-fronted homes may have bedrooms on the ground floor and living upstairs to take in the view. This is called reverse living.
  3. Outdoor Space: While townhouses may have smaller yards than detached homes, they often include a small private garden, patio, or balcony.
  4. Garage or Carport: Many townhouses come with attached garages or carports, offering convenient parking and additional storage.
