A townhome or town house, is a type of medium-density housing usually terraced (row housing) or semi-detached. A modern town house is often one with a small footprint but containing multiple floors. Ladera Ranch has a few townhome neighborhoods named Charleston Place, Aldenhouse, Sycamore Grove. These communities are side-by-side townhomes meaning there will be no one living above or below your unit. The homes in these communities are great for first time home buyers because of they're moderate pricing. The homes can range from $300,000 - $400,000 for a 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath, with 1400 - 1650 square feet of living space. The best option is to get an end unit, that way you will only have 1 common wall with your neighbor.
