The Top 3 Reasons to Live in a Single-Story Home.

Posted 11/19/2019

If you’re looking for a beautifully crafted single-level home to accommodate all your family’s needs, Waterston has some great options. The neighborhoods of Domaine and Brighton have several floor plans that not only give you the ease of single-level living, but also provide generation suite options for grandparents and in-laws. That kind of multi-generational living is made smoother for the whole family with a separate entrance to a private bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and living space. There’s even an option on select floor plans to connect the one car garage to the generation suite with an entry door for added privacy, convenience and storage.

But finding creative ways to keep all your loved ones comfortable isn’t the only reason to love single-level living. Here’s all the ways any family can benefit from the single life.

It’s easier for everyone.

From small children to disabled and special needs family members to an aging couple, the simple act of taking stairs out of the picture can do wonders for day-to-day life. No more worrying about tumbles, falls or climbing all the way up to bed after an evening snooze on the couch. Your home flows seamlessly from room to room and generally feels more welcoming to all.

There’s less to maintain.

Even if you don’t mind climbing stairs, maintaining the outside of a multilevel home can be challenging at best. One-story living not only significantly cuts down the indoor cleaning but also gives you the freedom to reach the entire exterior with just a ladder. Say goodbye to the days of strenuous gutter cleaning or dangerous holiday light hanging. And let’s not forget laundry. No need to lug laundry baskets full of clothes up and down the stairs anymore.

Increased energy efficiency.

The simplicity of one-story homes can create better airflow throughout the entire place. That’s why it typically takes a lot less energy to heat or cool these homes, depending on the layout and size.

No matter the type of home you’re searching for, Waterston has tons of community perks that make every day feel like a breath of fresh air. From the 7-acre Central Park & Lake with walking paths to the Grand Ramada with a lakefront outdoor fireplace, there are countless ways to get lost in Waterston’s natural charm. And with everyday conveniences like shopping, entertainment and medical facilities just a short drive away, you can rest easy knowing you’re hidden in the middle of it all.
