Living with Ease: The Benefits of Townhome and Paired Home Living with Norfolk Homes

January 25, 2024

Embarking on the journey of homeownership is a monumental decision—one that requires careful consideration and thoughtful planning. As one of the most significant investments of a lifetime, it’s crucial to know what type of home you want to live in, and it’s important to not overlook the charm and practicality that townhomes and paired homes bring to the table. 

At Norfolk Homes, we go beyond just offering single-family homes—we take pride in presenting a range of low-maintenance townhomes and paired homes across our exquisite new home communities in the Ann Arbor area. We firmly believe that homeowners deserve the freedom to indulge in the activities they love most, which is exactly the type of lifestyle that townhome living provides. Read below as we explore the array of benefits of embracing low-maintenance living with Norfolk Homes in Bristol Ridge, Emerald Hills and Mystic Ridge—where every townhome and paired home is meticulously designed to enhance your quality of life.

Embrace lower-maintenance living

Rather than spending time maintaining your yard or worrying about any structure repairs—why not own a townhome or paired home from Norfolk Homes? Between the snowfall in the winter and the blossoming plants in the spring here in the Ann Arbor area, it can become a bother to have to worry about who’s taking care of the yard in between busy lifestyles. Instead of mowing or pulling out weeds, spend your free time relaxing with loved ones after a week’s hard work and enjoying everything the Ann Arbor area—and the comfort of your new home—has to offer. At Norfolk Homes, our townhomes and paired homes in Bristol Ridge, Emerald Hills and Mystic Ridge include yard and structural maintenance to require minimal upkeep and help you stop worrying—and start living.

Ease into homeownership

Embarking on the journey of homeownership can often feel like navigating uncharted waters. Because of this, our team recognizes the importance of offering a diverse range of housing options that cater to varied lifestyles. For those wanting to ease into homeownership, our townhomes and paired homes throughout Ann Arbor exemplify the perfect middle ground—a sweet spot between the convenience of apartment and condo living and the spaciousness and sense of home that comes with single-family homes. The reduced footprint of a townhome or paired home ensures a more manageable space, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a hassle-free lifestyle.
