5 Great Design Ideas to Make Your Luxury Townhome Your Own

Your new luxury townhome will be your family’s sanctuary for years to come. Make the most of your space by bringing your unique personality into the design scheme. When you’re done designing your space, you’ll truly feel at home, and you’ll love showing off your work to your guests.

Install a residential elevator

A residential elevator can be the perfect feature for your new home. And if you choose a luxury townhome in Wilmington, DE located in The Overlook at Rockford Falls, you can request that the builder install it before you move in. Elevators are an increasingly popular home feature. Even if you prefer to take the stairs most of the time, an elevator will prove indispensable when you need to move heavy items between floors, or simply for aging in place and increasing the home’s resale value.

Add a touch of old Hollywood glamour

Looking for a warm and welcoming, yet sophisticated and chic vibe for your luxury townhome? Consider adding a touch of old Hollywood glamour. This style is all about sharp contrasts, particularly black and white. For instance, you could put up very dark, textured wallpaper on one accent wall, leaving the other walls white. Look for black sofas with bold, white accents. Choose dramatic, glitzy lighting fixtures, and add elements of glass and crystal. Choose a few select pieces to add some surprising color to your home, such as shades of coral, wine, green, or amber.

Bring the outdoors inside

Wood floors are a good start to enhancing the natural feel of your luxury townhome in Delaware, but consider doing something a bit more over-the-top. The stacked townhomes available in Montchanin Builders’ Darley Green community, for instance, feature beautiful, vaulted ceilings. Enhance that vertical space by adding one or two dwarf trees to your décor. Consider a dwarf Meyer lemon tree, which is easily grown indoors year-round. You’ll also get a pop of natural color when it bears fruit.

Add texture

Enhancing your home with plant life is one way to add texture. There are lots of other strategies you can use too, like diversifying your artwork collection with a tapestry or two. Ethnic area rugs are another option for adding some eye-catching texture. If you’re a bibliophile, consider showcasing your collection in a floor-to-ceiling display. Books are texture too, though they aren’t often considered a décor element.

Add an authentic international flair

Your home should tell the story of your life. Whenever you travel, you can look for interesting, one-of-a-kind souvenirs to use in your home décor scheme. From classical sculptures and paintings to unexpectedly whimsical pieces, your authentic additions will make your home your own. Not much of a traveler? No problem! That’s what Google is for. Look for unique and aesthetically pleasing items from the cultures you’re most passionate about.

Top 3 Trends in Condo Living

For decades, the single-family home was the number one preference for Delaware homebuyers. Market trends have shifted, however, as people began to appreciate the simplified lifestyle offered by condo ownership. Gone are the days when new construction condos attracted a specific kind of buyer: empty nesters looking to scale back, or the young professional willing to trade in square footage for convenience and city location.

Today’s condominium communities attract a wide variety of buyers, from retiring Boomers and young families, to singles and couples who are transitioning from an entry-level apartment to a spacious, two-story condo. The community of Darley Green in Claymont, Delaware is the perfect example of where this is happening.

Why are increasing numbers of buyers opting for condo living?

For many, it all boils down to quality of life. They want to spend their time doing what they love, not worrying about yard work or property maintenance. They want to be close to shopping, dining and some of the region’s best schools, and still cut down on their commute. Darley Green checks all the right boxes:

  • Thoughtful floor plans with options to personalize
  • Gourmet kitchens
  • Attractive financing options
  • A prime address close to downtown Wilmington and historical attractions

With all of this in mind, let’s explore some of the biggest trends in condo living for 2018.

Expanding space

While some have embraced the notion of “tiny house living,” residential developers have also seen a growing demand for more square footage in the modern condo. Young couples in particular are looking for 3-bedroom units that can accommodate the needs of a growing family. Buyers are finding more spacious dwelling options close to the city; instead of cramming into 1,200 square feet, they can choose from open floor plans boasting up to 2,500 square feet of living space.

Focus on community

Developers are also realizing that buyers are not only looking for carefree living close to urban amenities. Walking trails, playgrounds, parks and shared green areas have become the extension of the home, as people yearn for a sense of community and neighborhood camaraderie. In that vein, master-panned developments are creating more than just condos, but a backdrop that encourages communication and a real sense of community.

More family-friendly amenities

Condo living definitely appeals to individuals who want a relaxed “live, work and play” lifestyle. But it also attracts buyers who are planning to have kids and want the amenities and conveniences in place to raise a happy and healthy family. They want homes that are close to reputable schools, public transport and have more features that cater to families. Even empty nesters are looking for communities where their grandkids can visit and have parks, playgrounds and outdoor areas to play.

5 Signs That You’ve Outgrown Your Apartment

couple moving into new homeIf you are early in your career, or have a younger family, the temporary nature of apartment living offers the opportunity to change your living situation to meet the demands of your life. But as circumstances and tastes change, apartment-dwellers begin to wonder whether it is time to move on to home ownership.

How to know you have outgrown your apartment

Consider these signs that moving into your own home or condo may make the most sense for your lifestyle.

  1. Your space seems to be shrinking. There are so many ways this can happen – maybe your family is growing or your collection of tchotchkes is expanding. Maybe you are planning to work from a home office, or need more room for entertaining. A town home or condominium can offer several times more space than an apartment.
  2. You are ready to invest your payments into a home you own. You may decide that you owe it to yourself to make your monthly payments toward something you will have pride in owning long-term, rather than to a landlord for a fleeting month’s rent.
  3. You crave a more personal neighborhood. Since apartments offer flexibility, neighbors are more likely to come and go. For those looking to build long-term relationships, consider a planned community with amenities that foster neighborly friendships.
  4. Your current place is just not quite yours. While there are many inventive ways to add personal decorative flair to an apartment, it is difficult to entirely shake the cookie cutter feel. The ownership benefits of town homes and condos allow residents to add much more extensive custom touches, from painting the walls to remodeling.
  5. You prefer more refined options. When it comes to high-end details, your money will go farther when you own. Owners can also make more permanent choices, such as upgrading fixtures and finishes, which are almost always out of the question in a rental.

Consider a move-in ready home at Darley Green

If you find you relate to one or more of these situations, it might be time to upgrade from an apartment to owning your own home. Montchanin Builders offers exquisite design and thoughtful planning in its premier communities. The classically-styled Delaware townhomes and condos at Darley Green are located near Claymont and Wilmington, DE, in the desirable Brandywine School District.

Darley Green offers easy access to commute routes, as well as an array of local shops and businesses within walking distance. There is no shortage of activity, and neighbors love the extended family feel that Darley Green fosters.

Call Montchanin Builders today to schedule a tour of the move-in ready town homes and condos available at Darley Green, or one of our other thoughtfully designed Delaware communities.

4 Reasons Why a Townhome is a Great Investment

Building trends come and go. Tiny houses and homes built out of re-purposed shipping containers are the perfect examples. But some homes have staying power, up and coming generations are falling in love with them all over again. Townhouses have been a staple in Delaware and throughout the U.S. since the 19th century.

During the 1960’s, they became popular again, and now these beautiful buildings are experiencing another resurgence of popularity.

There are plenty of reasons why you should consider purchasing a townhome in Delaware, and here are a few of them.

A perfect balance of privacy and in-town convenience

Individuals, couples, and families often crave the convenience of living in town, but the privacy of living in a standalone home. Townhouses are the perfect compromise. As a blend of condominiums and single-family homes, townhomes provide the space-saving benefits that allow them to be located in desirable areas.

And while a townhouse is on either side by other townhomes, families can retreat inside for a level of privacy that is comparable to a single-family residence.

Easy access to community amenities

Despite the privacy of townhomes, they’re often located in neighborhoods that are chock-full of modern amenities. Depending on the specific neighborhood you choose, you might have a public library, jogging paths, nature trails, and parks—all within easy walking distance from your doorstep.

Less exterior maintenance = more free time

No time to shovel snow or rake leaves on the weekends or before rushing to work? No worries! Most planned communities include all facets of exterior maintenance and landscaping which gives townhouse owners more valuable time to spend with family and friends. Low maintenance is one of the greatest appeals of townhome living.

Townhomes are affordable

One major driving force behind the popularity of townhomes is their affordability. The initial purchase price on a townhome is generally more affordable than a single-family house in the same region. Plus, the property value increases over time, giving townhome owners a great return on their investment.

Townhouses are also less costly to maintain than standalone houses. Since both sides of the house are merged with the adjacent townhouse, heat loss is minimized in the winter, and heat transfer to the home is minimized in the summer. As an added perk, townhome owners can enjoy the feeling of knowing their home is eco-friendly.
