Reasons Why a Townhome Could Be Perfect For You

Here at Miller & Smith, we know that not all homeowners have the same taste in home style. Preference in home style may change over time, depending on the homeowners wants and needs. Traditional single-family homes are ideal for many homeowners, but not all – and that’s why we offer beautiful, spacious townhomes as options in several Miller & Smith communities in Maryland and Virginia.  

If you’re on the search for a new home and fit the following criteria, a townhome could be the perfect choice for you!: 

·      You don’t have much of a green thumb – or the time for a lot of lawn upkeep: One of the most commonly cited benefits of owning a townhome is the little yard maintenance required. Townhomes typically have some outdoor space, but not usually as much as single-family homes – which is great if you’re not looking for a lot of lawn upkeep.

·      You love convenient amenities. Oftentimes, newly built townhomes are located in communities that offer convenient amenities for homeowners. Consider Miller & Smith townhomes, for example, located in the communities of Brambleton, Embrey Mill, Gallery Park, Grapevine Ridge at Clarksburg Town Center and Victory Lakes, all of which offer excellent amenities for residents. Our Brambleton townhome residents in particular enjoy some of the best amenities available; a mixed-use community in Ashburn, VA, Brambleton offers various shopping and dining options, in addition to schools, pools and miles of trails to enjoy beautiful Loudoun County.

·      You still want plenty of square footage – for a great price. Homeowners may be under the impression that townhomes don’t offer much interior space because of their layout, but our newly built townhomes are incredibly spacious! What’s more, newly built townhomes by Miller & Smith offer an excellent value for the space offered.

If you’re still not convinced that a townhome can be the perfect option for you, all you have to do is visit a luxurious Miller & Smith townhome in one of our Maryland or Virginia communities! Spacious floor plans, modern features and impeccable design are all hallmarks of a Miller & Smith townhome, evident the moment you step through the door. 


The Allure of Loudoun County

At Miller & Smith, we carefully select the areas in which we build our new homes to maximize homeowner lifestyles. Whether it’s one of our communities in Maryland, Virginia or Delaware, Miller & Smith homes are located in prime areas across the mid-Atlantic region. Consider our homes in Loudoun County, VA, for example – our Brambleton townhomes, single-family homes at Marbury and One Loudoun single-family homes allow our homeowners to enjoy the very best of one of the country’s most exciting and dynamic areas. 

And we’re not the only ones who think Loudoun County is an amazing place to live! Popular real estate website Movoto named Loudoun County the best county in the nation because of aspects such as median household income, median rent and home price, and high school graduation rate. Read on to learn about other factors that contribute to the allure of Loudoun County for homeowners:

·      Fast growth: Loudoun County has experienced rapid growth over the past several decades to become one of the most exciting areas in the country. An area focused on agriculture for much of its history, Loudoun County’s population has nearly quadrupled over the past 30 years, and according to the Loudoun County website, the population is currently 330,000. Homeowners continue to move to beautiful Loudoun County and continue to realize all the benefits of living in this exciting, dynamic area.

·      Affluent area: It’s no secret that Loudoun County is one of the most affluent areas in the country. In fact, the most recent data puts Loudoun County at number two on the list of the most affluent counties in the nation (technically, Falls Church City, VA came in at number one – although it’s not a county, it has county-equivalent status as an incorporated city). With a median household income of $118,934, Loudoun County is certainly an affluent area, which translates to high quality of life for its residents.

·      Ideal location in Northern Virginia: There’s no doubt about it – Northern Virginia is one of the most exciting and desirable areas in the nation! High quality of life and proximity to Washington, D.C. are just two of the aspects that make the Northern Virginia area so great, and at Miller & Smith, we’re proud to build homes in the Loudoun County area of Northern Virginia. 

Whether it’s one of our beautiful Brambleton townhomes or a stunning single-family home at Marbury or One Loudoun, there’s nowhere else our Loudoun County homeowners would rather be!
