Hi All, Just wanted to ask around and get people's thoughts on what they like/prefer with regards to the orientation of a townhouse and would it effect your purchase. I have been advised a Duplex, front townhouse is worth more due to street frontage. I am building my PPOR at the rear and am spending A LOT so this is a slight concern. My thoughts are as follows: Duplex Pros - Street Frontage, Fully utilized block Cons - Narrow design, Share common wall Front Townhouse Pros - Street frontage, Better layout possibilities than a duplex Cons - Lose land for rear driveway Rear Townhouse Pros - Increased security/privacy (this could not be the case but from people I have spoken to in a rear they said they feel safer), less noisy as further away from road, better layout than a duplex, Driveway (if no common land) belongs to the rear townhouse. Cons - No street frontage I do personally believe a rear townhouse has the most pros but the street frontage is a big negative. I know for what I am building my facade will be gorgeous but until you come down that driveway you won't see it properly (sloped block doesn't help). I am also at the whim of the front property owner keeping the gardens looking nice. I did the Reno and put in a beautiful garden but it requires upkeep, with a renter in there, chances are this may not happen. Keen to hear others thoughts. Would you Not buy a certain townhouse type? If so why or why not? Do any of you live in one and what is your thoughts? Cheers!
