Typically, Townhouse plans are upscale duplexes, row houses or other multi-family structures designed with a little more flair, fashion and style than common multi-family buildings. They are designed as single-family homes and connected to a similar house by a side wall. Often, Townhouse plans are built in densely populated areas where land is precious and housing is at a premium such as growing metropolitan areas. These special structures are designed to save space while still offering individual living units for families, couples or singles. Most townhouse plans are two or three levels and range in style, size and finished square footage. Duplex plans and Triplexes share some similar features with townhouse plans.
In general, each unit of these multi-family designs showcases a different interior layout and various exterior looks giving each the character and appearance of an individual home while blending seamlessly with the unit(s) beside it. Varied exteriors provide dynamic street appeal, and a variety of floor plans and layouts helps to better accommodate the individual needs and preferences of the owner or tenants. Townhouses deliver comfortable living accommodations and many of the amenities and features typically found in a single-family house. The floor plans offer everything from open living areas and double garages to luxurious master baths, walk-in closets and practical kitchen arrangements. Townhomes range in size from one bedroom, one bath designs to those with three or more bedrooms and baths. Commonly built in up-scale neighborhoods, townhouses provide comfortable living and splendid accommodations for two or more families while neatly delivering the curb appeal and feel of individual, single-family homes.
