What is a Townhome in Austin, Tx?

Townhouse:
-Noun: one of a row of houses joined by common sidewalls.

During the course of my experience as a real estate agent in Austin Texas, I have come to realize that people assume a townhome to be a freestanding unit, much like a house or duplex. This is not necessarily the case. By definition, it’s a “row” of houses. Often times, people associate our townhomes with “row houses” like the ones in New York City. The image that comes to mind would be “the Cosby Show” dwelling. Austin’s a little different.

In Austin, most of the townhome style floor plans are located within an apartment type community. There are some that are strictly townhomes communities, but they are few and far between. More often than not, the communities often have other floor plans including One and Two bedrooms apartment homes/flats located on the premises. Often times, these flats are located underneath a townhome floor plan. Therefore, the entry doorway is located on the second floor as opposed to the first floor.

Being that a typical townhome floor plan is two stories, there are a few cons. One downside to a townhome is that utilities may run a little higher. Another thing to consider is that the stairway is included in the total square footage; so flats can often times seem more spacious.

On the bright side, a townhome floor plan often has no neighbors above or below the unit. And, the only walls shared are the side walls. Another plus, if it a townhome with a first floor entry, it may have a larger extended patio area.
