There’s a lot to think about when it comes to purchasing your next home. How much space do you need? What sort of maintenance can you keep up with or do you want to keep up with? If you’re looking for the privacy of owning your home without the regular responsibility of grueling yard upkeep - consider a smaller lot option like the patio homes in Georgetown, TX at Wolf Ranch!
What is a Garden Home?
It’s difficult to define what a garden home is, given the definition often varies community to community. A garden home is a dwelling that typically shares at least one wall with another home. Generally, they are smaller, one or two-story houses and are oftentimes confused with townhomes.
However, not all garden homes share walls, in fact, often the term “garden home” is associated with single-family homes as they too are considered “low- maintenance” as they are equipped with a compact yard and smaller lot size.
Why Choose a Garden Home?
Garden homes are great for many reasons. From price tags to community elements there are many benefits of choosing one of these low-maintenance homes:
1. Relax with Minimal Maintenance
These homes are ideal for those who are unable or uninterested in completing a lot of yard work. At Wolf Ranch, the garden home lawn care maintenance such as regularly scheduled mowing, is contracted and managed for you by the Wolf Ranch HOA and paid for by the Garden Homes homeowner dues.
2. Appreciate the open Floor Plans
Most patio homes include open floor plans that make your smaller place seem much more spacious and sizable. And while your new neighbors might be close to your property, there is the added benefit that you won’t have anyone located above or below you - offering much more privacy than apartments or townhomes.
3. Save your Money
Along with the smaller lot size comes a smaller price tag. These single-family homes are customarily more affordable than traditional homes that adorn large, high-maintenance yards. This means you can save sometimes thousands of dollars on these smaller lots, giving you a lot of extra spending money.
4. Stay Social with HOA Living
Typically, garden homes are part of a larger garden home community meaning they are not alone on their block or even within the immediate area. If you adore making new friends and living in a close-knit community, this might be the home option for you. These communities often have homeowners’ associations (HOAs) in place. HOAs require monthly or annual dues that cover the maintenance of the communal areas. However, they also serve to bring the community together by offering clubs, social opportunities, and local events for the residents.
5. Enjoy all the Amenities the Community has to Offer
As a garden home owner within an HOA group you are granted access to all the amenities the community has to offer. So, the open area park spaces, playgrounds, gardens, trails, dog parks, pools, and variety of other spaces offered are for you to use as well.
