What to Look for in a Townhome in the Baltimore Area

May 31, 2018

When you’re searching for a Baltimore townhome, it can be hard to figure out which features to prioritize. We put together a cheat sheet of design details that make a townhome stand out from the crowd, so you can feel confident about finding just the right fit.

Location, location, location

It’s a real estate mantra for a reason—even the most amazing home won’t offset the hassle of an hour-long commute or a school-district desert. Prioritize communities with easy access to what matters most to you, whether that’s shopping and dining options, parks and trails or top-rated schools. Hampden Square, for instance, is near attractions like the Maryland Zoo, The Avenue and the Inner Harbor, as well as Woodberry Light Rail Station, 1-83 and I-95.

Outdoor living

Don’t sacrifice outdoor space just because you’re living in a townhome! Decks, like at the one in Bristol Green’s Keaton plan, add space to relax and enjoy the weather, and fourth-floor roof-top terraces are the perfect place to enjoy sunrise, sunset and all the hours in between.

Layouts to fit your lifestyle

Because the space in townhomes is distributed differently than in traditional homes, try to find a floor plan that makes the most of each level.  On the main floor, open, inviting layouts that flow from dining area to kitchen to great room make it easy to comfortably entertain, while a thoughtfully designed upper floor maximizes space for every bedroom.

Personalization options

A home should adapt to you, not other way around. So, look for one that offers a range of exciting structural and design options, such as center or rear kitchens, deluxe master baths with walk-in showers and even a second master suite adjacent to a rooftop terrace, like the one in the Kenyon plan at Elkridge Crossing. At Villaggio Enclave, another versatile townhome community, you can add a sunroom, move the master suite to the main floor and convert the living room to a study!

It’s easy to personalize a townhome to suit your preferences, so don’t settle for anything less than your dream home! Discover all of our Baltimore communities and kick off your search today.
