Calgary Townhouses for Sale
When buying a house Calgary, one of the best options is a townhouse. A Calgary townhouse is considered medium-density housing, usually terraced and not necessarily semi-detached. Modern Calgary townhouses vary in size and layout, can have a basement and be a 2 storey type or be a bungalow style (sometimes referred to as villa style).
There is also a non-traditional Calgary townhouse in complex areas. This Calgary Townhouse real estate has two bedrooms in a unit, with the living room at the front portion on the lower level, and the kitchen at the back. The two bedrooms are in the front and back portions of the upper level, while a single bathroom is in between them. However, this type of housing has become less popular due to its adoption by rent control in certain areas.
Historically, a Calgary townhouse was a wealthy or noble family's city residence, having several country homes where they lived for most part of the year. Later, the term “townhouse” was used in reference to varied units in suburban areas, designed after detached and semi-detached homes. At present, “townhouses” refer to units that mimic detached homes that are attached in multi-unit complex areas. Usually a townhouse is defined as a multi-unit complex that has their own exterior entrance door. This makes them different from apartment condominiums that have access from only one level with a lobby and foyer that leads to an elevator inside.
Calgary townhouses have the unique feature of feeling like a home yet the exterior maintenance and common area up keep are taken care of by the condominium corporation. The payment of condo fees for common area maintenance is ideal for those who want a worry-free lifestyle and the ability to travel or focus on their social calendar.
