What You Should Know About Townhouse Maintenance in Kelowna
If you’re looking for townhouses for sale in Kelowna, you may be an empty nester, retired or simply in search of the maintenance free lifestyle. Spending time keeping up with yard work, painting the fence and shoveling snow should now be a thing of the past.
The lock and go lifestyle appeals to you. But, as you search through the townhouses for sale in Kelowna, you’ve noticed that many of them are designed with the living space spread out over multiple levels within the home. They are often built as a space saving option, crowding many tall, thin homes in a row.
Townhouses are available in more of a condo style but require a long walk through corridors to reach your suite. In these types of townhouses or condos, the maintenance fees are typically high because they’re spent on cleaning and repairing the hallways, elevators and other common areas in the building.
When shopping for townhouses for sale in Kelowna, ask yourself some questions to ensure you get the one that suits your lifestyle:
1. How is the living space designed?
At Camber Heights, the floorplans have been specifically designed as ‘open concept’ for our target market eliminating stairs in all interiors offering a very large, 1438-1561 sq ft, single level living experience.
2. What is the privacy like?
Townhouses are typically attached by a common wall. Camber Heights uses top quality construction materials to minimize noise as much as possible.
Most townhouses for sale in Kelowna have a large, open parking space for all homeowners to share but at Camber Heights, each resident has access to a semi-private garage.
For those who love enjoying a glass of Okanagan wine on the deck while watching the sunsets over the mountains, an expansive covered patio offering over 275 sq ft of outdoor living space awaits. The unique terraced design of Camber Heights ensures each patio is private to enjoy the beautiful view of the lake and valley below in peace. The ground floor homes include a 44 x 10 foot yard, perfect for someone with pets, grandkids or wanting a small maintenance free yard space.
3. How much are the maintenance fees and what do they cover?
The maintenance fees at Camber Heights are minimal compared to other townhouse communities in the area at $155.74- $214.07 per month. Removing corridors, stairs and elevators have all contributed to keeping the monthly condo fees low. The upkeep of the exterior is included in the maintenance fees meaning no more worrying about snow removal, landscaping, painting fences and more.
4. What’s the natural ambiance like?
Townhouses for sale in Kelowna come in a variety of styles but the most common concern is the number of windows to let in natural light and enjoy the surroundings the Okanagan offers. Camber Heights is situated on a unique piece of land with incredible views. The superb design of this terraced, single level maintenance free community allows the ability to place oversized windows throughout the home. Bringing the outdoor, natural settings into the living space was important to the design of each townhouse.
