Single Family Homes
It’s all about personal preference. Both Single Family and Streetscape homes have similar sizes, with comparable finishes, numbers of bedrooms and bathrooms.
The difference is the shape of the lot and orientation of the home. The simplest explanation is that a standard single-family home generally has the garage attached to the front of the home, whereas a streetscape home generally has the garage located within the overall outline of the home. The two examples below have equal living space and equal garage sizes.
Another difference is that a Standard single family home has minimum 1.2 m (3.93 ft) side on both sides of the home, where a streetscape has a minimum 0.75 m (2.46 ft) foot and a minimum 1.05 m (3.44 ft) side yard. Again, it all comes down to what fits your lifestyle.
Some advantages you’ll find with a Streetscape home include:
The best of both worlds – you’ll be able to have a front attached garage AND a good sized veranda for a welcoming feel
Your home will be the highlight, not the garage. The curb appeal of these homes is one above the rest!
You’ll get more windows with a Streetscape home as the fire code simply allows for it! You’ll have way more natural light filling your home.
You’ll be unique – the streetscape product is new to the market after a long run of the traditional single-family homes. You’ll stand out and help create a non-cookie cutter look on your street!
