The Advantages of Single Level Living
March 30, 2020
If you’re looking for a beautifully crafted new single-story home to accommodate all your family’s needs, Olivia Lane in Concord is just what you’ve been looking for.
Planning for the future
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.
Indoor Outdoor Living
Each single-story home at Olivia Lane is situated on a large lot, Take advantage of that by adding French doors, folding doors or retractable sliders.
Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
Maintaining and cleaning a single level house is drastically easier than with a two-story home. Many retirees enjoy taking care of their homes, but age and physical limitations can get in the way of that. Not being able to properly clean and care for their homes can lead many older homeowners to feel less confident and capable, which is why a single-story home is such a smart choice.
uninterrupted living space
Since there’s no need for a staircase to take you from the living area to the sleeping area, more space can be freed up in a single-story home.
No noise from upper-level traffic
Without a second floor, there’s no noise from occupants walking about upstairs.
Lower Heating and Cooling Costs
A single-story home is an excellent return on investment when it comes to heat and air conditioning. With just one floor to heat or cool, single-story homes are more cost and energy-efficient.
Maintenance is So Much Easier
Do you know what’s not fun? Carrying a vacuum cleaner up and down a set of stairs every week. Everything is on the same level in a single-story home, so there’s no need to run up and down floors carrying laundry or cleaning supplies. This is true for outside your home too. Washing your windows, cleaning your gutter, or painting is all easier when there’s only one floor to deal with.
Should there ever be a fire, escaping from the home is much easier and safer from the main level. If the fire blocks off any exits from an upper level in a two-story home, evacuating can be much more difficult if not impossible without being rescued from a second-story window.
