Small Townhouses are different from detached houses because they sit on smaller block sizes. Also, townhouses are usually attached and on a shared title, meanwhile, houses are detached where the buyer is purchasing on an individual title (not belonging to strata).
Living in a small townhouse usually means sharing a common wall with neighbours and some common spaces like a driveway. A townhouse is often easier to maintain than a house and offer more space and privacy than an apartment.
Small townhouses are the perfect mix of achieving the size of a house, but with the convenience of unit-style living. A small townhouse may have a yard, but they it is usually small and manageable, also a townhouse won’t be having a lift to be sharing with the neighbours to your front door as it happens when getting an apartment.
The design and construction style of small townhouses can help you save money on heating and cooling expenses. Fewer rooms mean less time spent on cleaning and home maintenance. Small homes have small rooms. This gives each room, as well as the entire house, a feeling of cosiness and intimacy that larger homes lack.
Townhouses are contemporary terraced buildings commonly found in the suburbs of large cities. They are space-efficient and if they are larger than the small ones, they have multiple levels with as many bedrooms as possible, though the most common size is three.
But, it is always great to reduce your carbon footprint so living in a big house usually means that you waste plenty of precious resources. Smaller homes have less space to heat and cool, meaning that they will have a better environmental footprint. Larger homes also tend you use up more unnecessary water and electricity while living in smaller homes you will enjoy big savings.
And in a townhouse, you can enjoy your space without spending all your free time tending to a large yard, this certainly makes living in a townhouse very appealing.
In Australia, townhouses are generally considered attached because they usually share a common wall or common walls. However, there are some townhouses that are freestanding which could be considered detached.
While townhouses might look relatively compact from the street, once you get inside, you will notice they are deceptively spacious. You can still have a spacious home with an outdoor space, without the need to have a large yard.
Townhouses are often the first-choice accommodation for university students or young professionals living in share-houses. They make up for approximately 10% of all Australian housing.
The average size of a townhouse varies by state, but the largest townhouses on average are found in Victoria (155m2) and Victoria (155m2).
