Why more downsizers are choosing the Urban Series townhouses

We downsize for many reasons – kids leaving home, retirement or simply to free up funds for a lifestyle change or tree change. 

The truth is, more and more people are choosing to downsize and it’s a lot to do with modern life.

Once upon a time, the Australian dream was owning a big block of land with a big backyard. Today, our fast-paced modern lives have meant our priorities have changed, especially when it comes to the home and lifestyle we’re looking for. 

As downsizing becomes more popular, more and more people are choosing to go with a one and two storey townhouses due to the low maintenance lifestyle they offer. But that’s only one of the reasons why more downsizers are choosing the Urban lifestyle.  

Downsizing does not mean downgrading

In the past, downsizing often meant moving from a larger home into a small unit or apartment where you would sacrifice space and features. Today, thanks to innovative home designs and build options, downsizing can mean a functional, feature-packed home simply with a smaller footprint.

Townhouses boast modern, innovative designs tailored specifically to you. Built by some of the best builders in the business, 2, 3 or 4 bedroom homes have been sustainably designed to offer you the most out of your space.

Location, location, location

One of the main reasons downsizers are choosing two storey homes is due to the location they are available in. 

Finding a large block of land can be rare and expensive in a suburb that is close to the beach, city or amenities. With smaller lots available in a number of communities in highly sought-after suburbs you get all the benefits of the location, for a fraction of the price a large block and home would cost. 

All of our innovative one and two storey homes are designed to suit the smaller lot to fully maximise the land available, so you don’t have to compromise on space or quality.   

Low-maintenance living

The second reason is that two storey homes are easier to maintain than their single storey counterparts. This is especially important for downsizers who want to avoid expensive and time-consuming upkeep.

Forget about the never-ending cycle of chores that comes with keeping up with a big house and a big block. Designed to minimise the time you spend maintaining your property and with a faster build time, you’ll be in your new home sooner and spending your weekends enjoying it, not maintaining it.

For those looking to enjoy the ‘lock and leave’ lifestyle, two storey narrow lot homes are the perfect option thanks to the low maintenance required to look after them.   

Upsize your lifestyle

Downsizing your home doesn’t have to mean downsizing your lifestyle. 

With our innovative two storey home designs, you can still have all the space and features you need, just on a smaller scale. Whether it’s entertaining guests or having family and friends visit and stay, you can still enjoy the lifestyle you’ve always had just with less to cleanup after!

Save on your power bills

Another benefit of owning a two storey home is that most are now built with a 6-star energy rating as standard. 6-star energy rated homes maximise energy efficiency, reducing artificial cooling/heating and lessening your impact on the environment by reducing your carbon footprint. It also means real savings on your energy bill.

If you’re downsizing and considering a two storey home, narrow lot homes are definitely worth considering. With their many benefits, they’re becoming increasingly popular among downsizers looking for their perfect forever home.
