A complex of two- or three-storey terraced houses with a separate entrance for each family. Each house in complex has a common wall with its neighbours.
A townhouse is a perfect combination of a city apartment and a country . On the one hand, there is the common infrastructure and the opportunity for socialising, and on the other hand, there is the private area and two or three levels of living space. Typically, the ground floor of a townhouse has the kitchen, dining room and living room, while the upper floors have bedrooms and bathrooms.
It is cheaper to build townhouses than cottage communities. Standart townhouses are constructed in a shorter period of time, which allows to bring the area to a finished appearance much faster. The cost per square metre in a townhouse is lower than in a detached house.
Townhouse residents don’t usually farm their land: they don’t grow crops or keep domestic animals (other than cats and dogs). Small courtyards are usually used for lawns, flowerbeds and barbecue areas.
