It happens more and more these days—the phone rings or an email arrives with somebody looking for a single level townhome in the greater Dallas area.
Single level townhomes are relatively rare in the area. Townhome lots tend to be narrow with 25 to 28 feet being typical. The small lot size usually dictates that the builder has to go vertical in order to get a reasonably sized townhome to fit on the lot. Larger lots are possible but land prices and material costs (larger foundations and roofs) drive up the cost of single level townhomes.
Most of the available single level townhomes are older but a couple of new townhome builders do build single level townhomes when they can find the larger lots. The most recent run of single level townhomes was built by CB JENI Homes in The Settlement at Craig Ranch. Demand was so high that the builder completed and sold all 39 townhomes in about a year and a half.
With the baby boom generation reaching retirement, many are selling their larger homes and moving into smaller homes and townhomes. Townhomes are especially appealing because the owners associations often takes care of all exterior maintenance and lawn/landscape care.
