WHAT IS A TOWNHOUSE?
A townhouse is a type of medium-density property, usually but not necessarily terraced (row housing) or semi-detached and a modern townhouse is often one with a small footprint on multiple floors. The term originally referred to the city residence of a member of the nobility, as opposed to their country seat.
Historically, a townhouse was the city residence of a noble or wealthy family, who would own one or more country houses in which they lived for much of the year. From the 18th century, landowners and their servants would move to a townhouse during the social season (when major balls and drawing rooms took place).
In England most townhouses are terraced. Only a small minority of them, generally the largest, are detached, but even aristocrats whose country houses had grounds of hundreds or thousands of acres often lived in terraced houses in town.
After the Second World War, large townhouses/terraced house in British cities were often divided into flats or converted into offices.
In the early 21st century this trend was reversed to some extent, partly because there is less demand for old houses as offices, since open-plan layouts are preferred, and partly because the number of very rich people in London has risen. For marketing purposes British property developers and estate agents often call new city terraced houses “townhouses,” because of the negative connotation of terraced housing. The aristocratic pedigree of terraced housing is widely forgotten.
Typically located in historically beautiful areas, townhouses prove the perfect compromise for those families that love the convenience of a smaller city or large town combined with country living.
