Townhouses are more affordable than owning your own house and a block of land with a backyard, with benefits including having a smaller low-maintenance outdoor area, and being a part of a community whilst still retaining a sense of privacy. All across Australia, there are affordable off-the-plan townhouses on the market for which are perfect for every homebuyer — whether you’re a young couple, growing family or a downsizer. Let’s take a look at some of the best around the country.
The Gentry, New South Wales
Located in Alexandria, The Gentry is a rare offering of just 37 beautifully designed Torrens Title Terraces (meaning you also own the land when you buy). United by an untouched heritage façade but free from expensive strata levies, these homes are the perfect combination of community connection yet individual privacy.
Spanning four levels, including 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each home has its own individual rooftop garden terrace, complete with a barbecue entertainment area and spa.
Titled ‘The Residences’, the townhouse collection at Iskia is the epitome of the home and backyard you always wanted, minus the maintenance. The first-floor living room seamlessly connects with a garden terrace — carefully landscaped with plantings which require less effort to maintain than other, more extensively crafted backyards found in traditional homes.
Presiding on a premium site in Campbell, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Canberra’s CBD, residents can take advantage of nearby Lake Burley Griffin or paths and trails winding along Mount Ainslie.
Coburg Collective, Victoria
The townhouses at Coburg Collective are located just 8km from Melbourne CBD. Filled with enough trendy dining hotspots and bars to rival neighbouring Brunswick, Coburg stands out due to its range of parklands and reserves — perfect for those who love to exercise outdoors or have active children.
Within each of the homes, beautiful materiality is on display. Hand-crafted mosaic tiles that recall the historic textural bluestone found within the suburb can be seen throughout the kitchen and living spaces while bespoke joinery completes the look.
The Hansford Residences, Queensland
For those who want to live in a beautiful suburb at an affordable price, look no further. The Hansford Residences are placed in the middle of Coombabah — nestled between untouched reserves and beautiful waterside suburbs.
Not only do these two-storey residences feature high-end inclusions such as Bosch appliances and modern pendant lighting, but they also come in five different floorplan configurations, making for truly bespoke living.
