News > Need a Little More Space? Try a Reno Townhome!

When people contact us about the communities on our website, one thing is for certain - they want to spend as little time possible working in the outdoors and as much time possible playing in them. A great way to achieve that dream is to buy a home in an low maintenance community.

Low maintenance communities feature the wonderful amenity of a Home Owners Association that takes care  everything outside of your home, such as the lawn, the pool and the landscaping, so you can spend more time enjoying the skiing, swimming, golfing, hiking, biking and other year-round outdoor activities for which the Reno-Tahoe area is famous.

A condominium is what people often think of when they imagine a low maintenance lifestyle, but due to their typical designs and configurations, sometimes a condo may seem too confined. If you’d like more space while still enjoying all the convenience of an easy-care community, a Reno townhome is the perfect residence for you.

Townhomes tend to be more spacious than condominiums due to the essential difference in their architectural design. Classic townhome construction style is for a row of nearly identical homes to be built side by side, so that owners share at least one wall with a neighbor. Units open up to the ground floor and are built up vertically, two or more stories high.

This design concept provides opportunities for more rooms, and more spacious rooms, than you would find in a typical apartment-style condo, and it usually means more square footage for the money. Esplanade at Damonte Ranch offers stylish, new, 2 and 3-bedroom townhomes that feature 2-story, spacious interiors with great rooms and open kitchens. The typical 2-bedroom layout at Esplanade at Damonte Ranch offers more than 1300 square feet, and the typical 3-bedroom unit boasts more than 1700 square feet - almost "house-like."

Another great feature of townhome living is the outdoor space. Townhomes almost always feature private patios and porches and some type of ground level outdoor space. The Parkwood townhome community offers units with generous outdoor patios surrounded by beautifully maintained, park-like grounds. Sitting on your patio at Parkwood you truly feel that you are secluded in nature, even though this secluded-feeling neighborhood is  conveniently located right in Central Reno!

Now if you’re downsizing from a single family home, you’ll want to look for a townhome with a garage. It's pretty difficult for most people to get rid of their "stuff" that spent years in a garage, so a townhome with a garage is an easy move for most of our downsizing clients. The townhomes at Fleur De Lis feature spacious attached garages offering direct access into the unit, meaning not only secure parking but convenient extra storage space as well.

The newly constructed units at Fleur De Lis also offer stylish, contemporary open layouts, private patios and beautifully landscaped grounds, as well as secure, gated entry to the community and a community pool and exercise room. Most Reno townhome communities offer great amenities like pools, tennis courts, spas, exercise rooms and clubhouses, and since they’re easy care communities these great amenities are usually all maintained by the HOA, same as lawn care, snow and trash removal, leaving residents more precious free time to enjoy the best of what Reno-Tahoe has to offer.

Of course each community is unique and individual HOA guidelines should be studied carefully before making a decision where to buy. Our website lists both condos and townhouses because both are easy-care communities in convenient, urban areas. For more townhome choices, see what else is available at our Reno townhome page.
