Top Benefits of Townhome Living

Throughout recent years, townhome living has become increasingly popular, and it’s no surprise as to why that is. There are a seemingly endless array of benefits that come from choosing a townhome as your primary residence—whether you are a first-time homeowner, a growing family or looking to downsize. At Main Street Homes, we are constantly working to ensure that all of our floor plan offerings meet the needs of today’s homeowners, so read on to see a few of the top benefits you will receive when you purchase a townhome from our team at Main Street Homes.

Low maintenance and affordable living

One of the biggest advantages of townhome living is the low level of maintenance required that gives buyers their free time back for the things they enjoy. Don’t spend your weekends doing lawn maintenance! Throughout our townhome communities at Main Street Homes, our residents won’t have to worry about time consuming exterior maintenance tasks such as snow removal or roof repairs—meaning they can enjoy the benefits of homeownership without the burden of constantly having to take care of the exterior of their home. 

Townhomes are often more affordable than single-family homes as well, making them a great option for first-time buyers or those on a tight budget. In many cases, the monthly mortgage payments for a townhome could be lower than rent for a similar-sized apartment, making it a financially smart choice overall. 

Take advantage of community amenities

Townhomes are also often located in more densely populated areas, which means that you will have easy access to a wide range of options such as grocery stores, restaurants and entertainment close by. While there are a number of nearby destinations that you’ll want to explore, you won’t have to go far to find activities to enjoy.

An additional reason why townhome communities are highly sought-after is the fact that they come with a variety of incredible amenities for residents to enjoy. Within our Cosby Village townhome community at Main Street Homes, our residents will have access to a clubhouse, swimming pool, walking trails, dog park and garden, which can be a great benefit for families with children or those who enjoy an active lifestyle. Having these incredible amenities right down the street also brings a strong sense of community to the neighborhoods as they provide plenty of opportunities to socialize with all of your neighbors. 

In Chester, our IronBridge Townhome community offers two and three story luxury townhomes conveniently located off IronBridge Parkway near Better Med Urgent Care and the Primrose School. Fire up the grill and enjoy your community with neighbors at the spacious covered pavilion. Get active with a game of pickleball or show off your skills on the basketball court.  When you need a more tranquil adventure, go for a walk or take your bike for a spin on the shaded bike trail. Looking for more? Head across the street to the Ironbridge Sports Complex. Be sure to check out our quick move in homes to discover your dream home at IronBridge Townhomes!

Never compromise on what you want

At Main Street Homes, each townhome we build comes with a plethora of high-end features and finishes that today’s homeowners are looking for. With outdoor living options available, luxurious first, second or third floor primary bedrooms, natural gas for HVAC, tankless hot water heaters, granite or quartz kitchen countertops, ceramic tile kitchen backsplash, stainless steel appliances and home office and flex space options available throughout our Energy-Star certified homes, our townhome community residents will always receive the highest quality home, every time. 

What does an Energy Star built townhome mean?  It means that your home has been built to higher standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which automatically increases your home’s quality and value.  You’ll save money with your new home!  A new ENERGY STAR® Certified Home by Main Street Homes can be over 30% more efficient than a standard new home, and over 60% more efficient than a 20-year-old-home. This adds up to a significant energy cost savings for you over the life of your new construction home. You’ll have reduced leaks and drafts, more consistent temperatures and improved air quality in your home, and overall better durability. Better IS better! 

Live your dream lifestyle

Overall, townhome living has a lot to offer new homebuyers. Whether you’re looking for an affordable, low-maintenance option or want access to an abundance of community amenities—a townhome may be the perfect choice for you.
