Townhomes are among the hottest real estate in the country, and communities like Anacapa at The Farm in Ventura are experiencing the demand firsthand. Phase Two is selling quickly at this innovative community of Ventura townhomes, with buyers coming from all over Southern California to capture a piece of the latest housing trend.
“Recent waves of outside-the-box ideas in housing have brought us teeny-weeny homes, converted shipping containers, prefab modern palaces, and co-housing apartments with luxe perks for millennials,” said Realtor.com. “Townhouses, those classic rows of attached single-family homes that are a fixture in American cities and suburbs alike, got a second wind in the 1960s. That’s due to folks scooping up these existing, and often inexpensive, older abodes as they moved back into the big cities. And now the lovechild of a condominium and standalone house is back again and hotter than ever with both buyers and builders.”
Townhomes are currently the “fastest-growing segment of the single-family housing construction market, according to the National Association of Home Builders, a Washington, DC–based trade group,” they said. “They made up about 12.4% of all new construction in the single-family home market last year, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.”
Townhomes are selling fast at Anacapa at The Farm, as Ventura new home buyers discover these 32 charming attached residences that live like single-family homes. With 3 to 4 bedrooms and 2.5 to 3 baths, the airy 1,744 to 2,287-square-foot interiors include gourmet island kitchens with great flow into the large living and dining spaces. Bonus rooms above the garage in Plans 2 and 3 give buyers much-appreciated flexibility to create a home theater, art studio, home office, or simply as a place for extra storage. Each of the homes also includes a private yard.
Everyone from first-time buyers to retirees have embraced Anacapa, in part because of the greater affordability of townhomes. “Recent sales of townhouses show that the median price is “about 12% less than detached single-family homes,” said Realtor.com.” The low-maintenance aspect is another important factor; Anacapa’s Homeowner’s Association takes care of the front landscaping, building maintenance, and roof maintenance and repair.
Located in one of Southern California’s most desirable areas, these Ventura townhomes are close to a wide array of entertainment, dining, and cultural opportunities, as well as beach activities, great schools, and abundant employment. Anacapa is one of four new offerings at The Farm, with attached and single-family residences as well as two on-site parks.
