Townhouses are perfect for family living

Townhouses have a certain elegance, but they also offer a flexibility that’s perfect for families, and their popularity is on the rise according to CG Fry & Son.

The stylish three-storey home, which is currently being offered for sale at the Poundbury, and Nansledan developments in Dorset and Cornwall, features four spacious bedrooms, with a garage and parking.  It’s the thoughtful layout however which is proving attractive to potential buyers.

In Poundbury, the ground floor features a dining room, kitchen with French windows leading into the garden and a cloakroom. However, the dining room could easily be used a family room or playroom.  At Grey’s Field and Nansledan there is a spacious kitchen and dining area on the ground floor, a utility room and a cloakroom. 

On the first floor of CG Fry & Son townhouse is the master bedroom suite and sitting room, which again offers a living space that can be adapted to suit the needs of the buyer.  On the second floor of the townhouses at Poundbury are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom, ideal for a growing family. At Grey’s Field and Nansledan, on the second floor are two further bedrooms, a third bedroom or study and a family bathroom.   

Caroline Hill, Sales and Marketing Director for CG Fry & Son, said; “We have seen a great deal of interest in our townhouses, particularly from families looking to upsize to a more suitable living space.  However, the adaptability of the homes means that there is even potential for downsizers who are looking for a property to accommodate visiting families.”

“As is typical of a CG Fry & Son home, each townhouse is finished to the highest specification and offers a sense of space as soon as you step through the front door.  With our developments in such sought-after locations in Dorset and Cornwall, interest from potential buyers is certainly growing.”
