The Benefits of Living in a Multi-Story Townhouse

January 14, 2022

Multi-story townhouses are becoming increasingly popular housing options across the Utah County region. They offer a host of benefits over traditional single-family homes, from more affordable prices to more communal living spaces.

Townhomes are special because they offer square footage similar to a free-standing home while providing the convenience of an apartment or condo – only with a few distinct differences. Living space in a townhouse is spread throughout multiple floors, similar to the new homes in the Lehi, UT area that McArthur is building. Let us explain just a few of the reasons why multi-story townhouses are worth considering if you’re in the market for a new home.

More Square Footage With Smaller Footprint

Multi-story townhouses take up less space on your lot than traditional single-family homes. This is especially advantageous if you live in a tight urban area, or are constrained by HOA covenants or zoning regulations. Multi-story townhouses typically offer more square footage than an apartment or condo of the same size.

Separation Between Bedrooms and Living Space

Some townhomes offer a level of privacy that you can’t find in an apartment or single-family home. A multi-story unit allows for separate living and bedroom spaces, giving each person their own private space as well as a shared communal area to relax together with family members and friends.

The Aesthetics of Stairs in Your Home

What’s better than the open-air feel of a new Lehi home with few walls separating spaces? The benefits of stairs. Stairs are not only useful for moving between floors, but they can be an attractive focal point that adds character to your living space.

Multi-Level Townhomes Offer Great Views

When you are tree-height, your views are better. Multi-level townhomes typically have better views than a one or two-story home. If you’re looking for an interesting and scenic view to wake up to every day, living in a multi-story townhome is your best bet.

Save on Utilities With a Townhouse

The multiple-story townhouse is more energy-efficient than a single-story home. This has to do with the fact that fewer exterior areas are exposed, meaning they don’t get as cold or hot in winter/summertime; there’s also less plumbing material which saves on heating costs because of how efficiently heat moves around your house (this translates directly into lower utility bills).

A Multi-Story Townhome is a Great Investment

People Looking Over A Contract

Multi-story townhouses are becoming more and more popular, which is good news if you’re looking to resell in the future. They offer all of the benefits of a free-standing home but take up less space, meaning they’re perfect for people who want the amenities of a suburban home without sacrificing their city lifestyle. They’re an excellent option for the benefits they offer as well as their affordability and resale value.
