We were recently asked, “what’s the difference between a rowhome, a townhome and a paired home?” Good question. Let’s start with the fact that these are all multi-family homes, as opposed to single-family, where one structure equals one address or one residence. Baseline’s David Weekley Homes would be an example. Next up is the paired home, sometimes known as a duplex, where there can be two residences to one structure, usually one on each side, with a shared or common wall in between. They can be the mirror image of each other or they can be completely different floorplans. KB Home is building a beautiful paired-home collection at Baseline, for instance. Which brings us to rowhomes versus townhomes. What they both have in common is there can be many residences in the same structure, each with street-level entries and usually more than one floor. Where they differ is that rowhomes typically repeat the pattern of architecture for each residence – oriented in rows along a street, while townhomes may vary design and layout for each unit. (Then again, sometimes they may not and that’s where it gets murky) Thrive Home Builders’ DoMore Rows are a contemporary example of rowhomes at Baseline and Meritage Homes will be bringing beautiful new townhomes to Baseline soon. Ultimately, however, classifying the type of home is up to the builders themselves. Because each builder tends to reinvent and reinterpret architecture as needs change.
