Patio Homes Barrington Illinois. What is a patio home and are they available in Barrington Illinois?
Barrington IL is a suburban village in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and patio homes are often found in suburban settings. It’s an American term for a type of housing where several units are attached to each other with shared walls. Exterior maintenance and landscaping is the responsibility of the Home Owners Association. Patio homes are also referred to as Cluster homes. As you can imagine the defining factor is that in place of a yard you’ll have a patio for your outdoor living space. Not all patio homes have exactly the same features.
Patio homes are also referred to as town homes or townhouses, garden homes, carriage homes, twin homes or duplexes. The definitions are not legal rather than a style. Here in Barrington we tend to use the terms town homes, carriage homes, duplexes or maintenance free properties, rather than patio homes.
The building maybe be condo ownership or fee simple but the land you own is only that directly under the unit, no additional areas or yard. Patio homes are perfect for buyers who want no exterior maintenance work to do or pay for.
