What is a Garden Condo?
A garden condo is a condo that is partially below ground but still often has access to a patio or backyard. They are often the lowest unit of a single family townhome.
These type of condos have many benefits that make them a great deal for people looking to buy a condo in the city. Here are just a few pros to garden condo living:
- These style of condos are typically the cheapest of the available condo units in a building. If you want a prime location but don’t want to pay high prices, we highly suggest looking into garden condos when you start your home search.
- Garden condos are usually one or two bedroom units, making them great for a first condo. These are excellent first properties to invest in, especially for first-time homebuyers. They can often become useful rental units down the line as well.
- They are also a perfect fit if you’re someone who likes to sleep during the day. Because they receive less natural light than other units with more windows, they are perfect for folks in the service industry who work in the evenings. They also are much more energy efficient because they stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter too. That will save you lot on utility bills.
- If you’re a pet owner, definitely consider a garden condo. Without many flights of stairs and quick access to the outdoors, it’s extremely convenient if you need to take your pet out multiple times per day.
