Cottage Neighborhoods for Year-Round Living
Some people live alone or only with a partner, and have no need for a three- or four-bedroom house. Others want to stay in a community, but want to downsize after their kids have grown. Still others are just starting out in their careers and have neither the time, nor the money, to own a typical single-family home.
Cottage neighborhoods provide an attractive, affordable and safe housing option for people who want single-family home living at multi-family affordability. The smaller size of cottage homes enable builders to devote more resources to upgraded features within the home itself, as well as provide the opportunity for more innovative and efficient land use when creating "pocket neighborhoods". These neighborhoods can fit within existing communities and are typically close to the town center, mass transit and retail or business locations.
