Why Live in a Narrow Lot House?

Why Live in a Narrow Lot House?

Some waterfront properties reside on narrow lots. Could this be right for you?

Narrow lot house plans are one type of house plan you can find in your search for the perfect custom waterfront floor plan. Narrow lots may be available on Maryland’s shoreline for custom home building. The question is, is it possible that it could be right for you? Below, you’ll find four reasons why living in a narrow lot house is advantageous.

Location Affordability 

Buying a smaller lot of land that is still big enough for an efficient floor plan can save you money. It can make it more affordable for you to live in your dream location. Your ideal location depends on your enjoyment of the area, the commute to work, school, and amenities, and the proximity to your community, among other factors. A narrow lot could just fit the bill.

Boundless Creativity

Having tighter boundaries in which to design your home could open you up to boundless creativity. It is possible to maximize space in a narrow lot house plan in such a way that one can enjoy customized convenience and luxury in one small space. Narrow lot homes are typically at least two stories tall and have plenty of natural light and privacy from neighbors.

Compact Efficiency

The more compact a house is, the more efficient it is in terms of temperature control, ventilation, plumbing, and electrical output. All amenities such as heating, cooling, water, and electricity have less distance to travel throughout the home in a compact floor plan versus a sprawling one-story home. A narrow lot house could produce savings in utility costs long-term!

Lower Maintenance

A highly efficient home with a small footprint will take less time and energy to clean as well. A smaller home takes less time to vacuum, mop, dust, etc., leaving you with more time to enjoy your life. Because it is a smaller lot, you also won’t have as much lawn or garden to tend to.
