It’s not always easy to find a single level Craftsman style home in a new home community but listen up…because Concord Mills in the Austell area of West Cobb County has one single – level home remaining!

Why should you choose a single – level home?  Single level homes are  increasingly popular with buyers, but many builders do not include them in their communities because of the house footprint.

Why buy a single level home?

  • While “building up” may seem like a great way to fit more home onto your lot, there’s actually a fair amount of wasted space. Staircases take up a considerable amount of room, but a one-story house uses all the available space for living areas. In addition, one-story homes need fewer bathrooms, because everyone is on one floor. The space you would have used for bathrooms, then, can be allocated to more functional rooms.
  • A one-story house has more ceiling options. You have more leeway with things like ceiling height and skylights when you build a one-story house, and you gain storage space through the use of an attic.
  • One-story houses are, in many ways, safer. Not only does having a one-story house mean you don’t risk a fall down the stairs, but it’s also easier to evacuate your family in case of fire.
  •  It’s easier – and cheaper – to heat and cool a one-story home. Two-story homes tend to have inconsistent temperature zones, which necessitates using separate HVAC units. However, that also means more opportunity for expensive HVAC repairs. Circulation in a one-story home is more fluid, because all the rooms flow into each other. In addition, it’s easier to shade a one-story home, which means lower energy costs.
  • Ultimately, a one-story house is more convenient. With a two-story house, you inevitably want what’s on the other floor. Having a one-story house makes it easier to keep an eye on children, and noise is less of a problem when there’s no one overhead. It’s easier to keep a one-story house neat, too, because you don’t have to carry things “all the way upstairs” to put them away.

For all these reasons and more, you should consider a single level home.  Check out our final remaining home is 3759 Olson Drive Austell, GA  – Lot 12 Price $195,742.
