A townhouse is becoming an increasingly popular choice for buyers who are looking for flexible living accommodation.
Our St. Andrews house type offers so much to a wide variety of purchasers, from families with teenagers to those who need a separate floor for a family member such as a parent who is perhaps living on their own. And at over 1,600 sq ft of spacious living, you won’t be compromising on size either. Often townhouses feature a smaller third floor, but the additional floor in our St. Andrews matches the footprint of the rest of the property, leaving buyers to enjoy three generous floors, all with good sized rooms.
There are so many benefits to these flexible spaces including:
• A space that will grow with you
As our priorities and lifestyles change over the years, most of us look for a home that is able to grow with us. A townhouse offers a very adaptable layout that can adjust to growing children, the arrival of a new family member, guests staying over and even hobbies such as a craft room, music room or man cave. Townhouses offer the space for people to modify rooms as their needs change; from creating a home study/office (which for many of us has become an essential), a fitness room, family media room or children’s playroom – the possibilities are endless.
• Keeping everyone happy (we know how difficult that can be!)
For families with teenagers, the additional floor and separate living spaces can be transformed into a gaming and/or multi-media room, and if you’re feeling generous, they could even have a whole ground floor to themselves with a study/chill-out area and bedroom.
• Having guests/family to stay
The ground floor is the perfect choice for those buyers who are taking care of an elderly family member who wants to retain their independence yet feel that they’ve got a dedicated space away from the hustle and bustle (and noise!) of family life. For many buyers, keeping all of their loved ones under one roof is often a significant consideration when looking for a new home, and townhouses certainly offer a lot in this respect. The lounge has French doors overlooking the rear, turfed garden and leads to a patio, perfect for relaxing on sunny days. The morning room/bedroom boasts a lovely space, being light and airy and where you can watch the world go by from the feature bay window. The utility room is perfect for keeping a kettle, toaster and microwave and could easily be adapted to a kitchen.
