I had two things inspire me this week to post about in-city townhomes. First, NY Magazine had a great piece in their Home Design Fall 2010. The second, was an announcement by Washington Square in Bellevue.
In many other markets, like New York, Boston, San Francisco and Vancouver, townhome/brownstones are incredibly popular. Seattle lacks the same urban density as these markets, but over time it’s likely we will continue to see more in-city options. So what are you thoughts?
Here are my pros and cons:
- Private Entry
- Great Walkabilty
- Spacious Living
- Vertical Space
- Allows Creativity
- No Restrictive HOA’s
- Often Expensive
- Occasionally They Feel Constricted
- Vertical Space (not ideal for the older generation )
Did I miss anything? If you live in one, it would be great to have your opinion.
