6 Top Features in a Townhome
Today’s homebuyers often request “must-have” features when it comes to choosing their maintenance-free townhome. Some common features that homebuyers often request include:
1. Impressive Exterior Architectural Detailing
Your first look at the outside of your townhome should take your breath away. One way that happens is with beautiful details in the exterior architecture. Whether your townhome’s style is Modern or Traditional, an impressive exterior design might be what draws you to a townhome in the first place.
2. Sophisticated Contemporary Kitchens
A sophisticated contemporary kitchen can be a deciding factor when purchasing a townhome. Stainless-steel appliances, high-quality cabinetry, and quartz countertops are features many homebuyers want in their new homes. Add in an island with seating and a pantry, and you have the ideal cooking and gathering space.
3. Open Floorplan in the Main Living Area
The open concept floorplan in the main living area of your townhome might elicit a feeling of being in an urban loft or another of your favorite spaces. An open floorplan is more accommodating of how you use your living area, giving you more choices about where to place furniture and how one room flows into another. With no walls dividing the rooms, it creates a more welcoming space for interactions between family and friends.
4. Private Rooftop Terraces
A rooftop terrace is fast becoming a favorite townhome feature. In cities where residential lots tend to be smaller, homebuyers love the rooftop terrace trend. Whether in lieu of (or in addition to) a private yard, it can double as a gardening spot or entertainment space. And a rooftop setting may offer more privacy than a fenced backyard. Nothing beats taking to the rooftop to gaze around your city while you enjoy your new home.
5. Spa Inspired Owner’s Bath
In recent years, the “spa bath” in the owner’s suite has become a major must-have. And for good reason. An oversized shower with large, hand-laid ceramic tile, accompanied by double bowl vanities, is the ultimate luxury. The perfect spot to start your day or unwind afterward.
6. Energy Efficiency
Buying an energy-efficient townhome has benefits that last as long as you live there. You can conserve energy in many ways, but a smarter design adds greatly to the efficiency of your home. An energy-efficient HVAC system and programmable thermostat, energy smart appliances and light bulbs are all ways to have an energy-efficient home.
