In Malaysia, townhouses are most often mistaken for regular terraced homes, as they look like ordinary homes on the outside.
In fact, a townhouse is actually quite the unique home, designed terraced-style, consisting of two individual homes stacked upon each other.
In a typical 3-storey townhouse, this means one person owns 1.5 storeys, whereas another person owns the remaining.
Despite that, both owners enjoy private entrances, private parking spaces, and private compounds so there won’t be any strangers walking about in your home!
A townhouse development usually comes with shared residential facilities, and the units bear a strata title, like other common high-rises.
Although this means you’ll have to pay some maintenance fees, you’ll get to share the repair costs with your neighbours too.
Potentially more affordable than landed homes, some townhouses are specially designed to make them stand out from the crowd and increase their appeal.
Now, if you’re looking for a townhouse within a budget, check out these 7 affordable developments across the Klang Valley!
