Townhomes are rightly earning a reputation in Alberta for low maintenance living at a lower cost of ownership. What’s less well known is the amazing flexibility of this home style, if you are buying a new townhome.

Townhomes in Cochrane by Stepper HomesThe townhomes at Heritage Hills show just how much control you can have over your living space if you speak to your builder in the early stages of construction. Currently, you can choose between three three-bedroom layouts: The Baker at 1338 sq ft, The Collins at 1369 sq ft, and The Andover at 1405 sq ft. But the raw square footage hides the fact that you can re-imagine the smaller floorplan with two ensuite bedrooms.

The Baker with two ensuites then has the potential to become an investment rental for two people, with roommates sharing the common spaces but with their own private rooms and bathrooms. Or a couple could rent out the other room to help with the mortgage. And, as we move towards intergenerational living becoming the norm, two self-contained bedrooms could allow elderly relatives to move in without too much disruption, or could enhance the freedom of a teenager moving in with a recently single mom or dad.

There’s more flex designed into The Collins and The Andover, too. Here, the three bedrooms can be reconfigured into two bedrooms plus a nursery for a young family. Or the extra bedroom could become a gym, craft room, home office or media den. Let’s not forget that all three models have a basement space that can be finished to provide extra storage, or for the more adventurous, perhaps a wine cellar?

Townhomes are a watchword for versatility. They are the perfect fit for homebuyers of all ages who want to rightsize their property investment to match their lifestyles now and for years to come.

The best way to imagine how you would design your townhome is to make an appointment to view. Sales agents at Heritage Hills can fit you in anytime!
