19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
  • Versatile layouts encourage multi-generational living so your home evolves with your needs.
  • Quality construction and finishes at a reasonable price enabled by combined development and construction.

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are the sleeping giant of residential housing in Australia that is fast awakening and can play a major role in managing population pressures and demand for housing while providing a great lifestyle for many different groups.

“In coming decades, I believe townhomes will dramatically increase their popularity and role in the market. Far from being seen as a cheap alternative, for many people they will be considered a premium option that offers the best of both worlds.”

19.19 Popularity of Town Homes set to soar – Mulpha

Townhome living is set to soar according to Norwest developer Mulpha, as its convenience, flexibility and value for money are attracting renewed interest from first homebuyers and families, through to empty nesters and investors.

Tim Spencer, Executive General Manager, Mulpha Developments said, “With the dramatic increase in land values in recent years and population pressure to increase medium density housing close to transport and services, there is no doubt that quality townhome developments will be increasingly popular with a broad range of people.”

This is already underway, with census data showing that the townhouse proportion of dwellings increased from 9.9%to 12.7% in the five years to 2016.

“The increasing interest in townhomes is being driven by a number of key factors”, said Mr Spencer.

“Firstly, because of the more efficient use of land you simply get more value for your money. With smart design maximising the use of land and the building of multiple dwellings at once, the average cost of construction is much lower than for building a one-off house.

“This means that you can afford to live in a location with the sort of functional living spaces you need, close to transport and services, that would cost significantly more as a stand-alone house.

“With people enjoying busy and active lifestyles through all stages of life, many people don’t want the responsibility and cost of maintaining a large house and garden, but they do want the living spaces they need and nice outdoor entertaining and relaxation areas.

“For first homebuyers, a townhome can be a bridge from renting into a home of their own. For busy families it can provide all the benefits of their own home without the burden of maintaining a large garden or pool. For empty nesters and retirees, they offer the ability to downsize to an area they like, close to family, shopping and medical services, to enable them to be active in the community and maintain good social contact.

“By investing in good design we can integrate smart technology and make much more efficient use of space with good storage and flexible layouts.  While townhomes with Torrens title provide people with secure ownership of their property and the land on which it is built, well designed communal areas enable the cost of gyms and pools to be shared economically.

“In fact, good design can provide a great range of flexibility over time as people move through different life stages. For example, split level designs with a downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom can be perfect for either a growing teenager or an older parent.

“This flexibility, convenience and appeal to a broad range of people also means they can be a great option for investors.”

According to Mr Spencer, townhomes are undergoing a major change in quality and how they are perceived in the market.

“Once considered a cheap rental or purchase option for low income people unable to buy or rent a house, they tended to be very basic design and construction quality that appealed to that market,” said Mr Spencer.

“In today’s market, developers are investing in top architects and designers to provide great living spaces for active lifestyles, integrating the latest in energy efficient design, beautiful landscaping and quality finishes. They can even allow a degree of customisation to make each home unique, inside and out.

“In terms of the quality of design, the economics mean that townhomes can be much better designed and constructed than stand-alone homes.”

Some of these design features can include:

  • Internal courtyards creating seamless indoor-outdoor spaces, inviting sun and airflow for a healthy living environment.
  • Energy efficiency with solar design, double glazed windows and cross-flow air.
  • Thoughtful room planning to bring families together but also provide good private space
  • Generous storage spaces, large laundry rooms and double garages.
  • Dense planting between homes for privacy and natural beauty.
