Looking To Downsize? Why Townhomes Might Be Right For You

townhomeWith minimalism becoming more and more popular, homeowners everywhere are looking to downsize. Some are putting up their homes for sale and moving into apartments, while still others opt for the extremely low maintenance living of tiny houses less than four hundred square feet. However, if you want to downsize, there’s no reason to go quite that extreme. Townhomes can be an excellent option for downsizing; read on to learn why.


Luxury Homes, Simple Living


If you’re looking for a smaller home, but don’t want to give up the comforts of owning your own space, townhomes are the perfect solution. Luxury townhomes have all the bells and whistles new homes tend to have, while being an easier, lower maintenance solution. You’ll have all the same perks of owning a larger home, with less space to maintain.


Smaller Spaces For Convenience


One of the biggest struggles of homeowning is maintaining everything in your home, from fixing utilities to even just daily cleaning tasks. The larger the home, the more there is to do; someone needs to take care of all those extra rooms. However, if you really aren’t using the extra space, a townhome could help you save time and effort. A townhome that’s smaller than a house of equal quality will help cut down on the amount of time you spend maintaining your home, giving you the freedom to enjoy your new space.


Readily Available On The Market


If you’re looking for a more unique downsizing option, you could be waiting a while; apartments and tiny houses of high quality can be hard to come by. However, there are plenty of townhomes available on the real estate market; simply start by looking online. For 42% of recent buyers, the first step that they took in the home buying process was to look online at properties for sale, and with good reason. Many listings are now available online, to help you get a head start on your house search.


Looking for a luxury townhouse community to start your downsizing process? Contact ParkView at Chesterbrook to see what luxury townhouses are available that could be your future home.

4 Things to Consider When Designing Your Kitchen

It’s undeniable. The kitchen is truly the heart of the home. When you want to gather with family and friends, the kitchen becomes the main attraction, especially when it has a welcoming design and layout like the kitchens we offer in all three of our models here at Parkview at Chesterbrook. Before you start to design your custom kitchen, here are a few 2016 design trends we’ve been noticing.

Unique Backsplash Designs

Shake things up by installing traditional subway tile vertically or think about a herringbone or diagonal pattern. Feeling truly inspired? Check out fireclaytile.com to design your own tiles for a truly custom backsplash.

Shaker Style Cabinets

Simplicity at its best. This style of cabinet can feel traditional or modern depending on the hardware and surrounding elements it’s paired with. Choose gray cabinets instead of white for a truly fresh look.

Quartz Countertops

Consider quartz as a lower maintenance alternative to granite. It’s nonporous and resistant to heat, spills and scratches, making it an ideal choice for busy families and the home chef.

Rethink Your Kitchen Table

Many of today’s modern homeowners choose to forgo a traditional table and instead opt to use their kitchen island as their dining space. If a table is a must for you, try a pub, tall gathering, or counter height table instead. These tables are typically 36 to 42 inches high, as opposed to the standard 30 inch kitchen table.
