29 May Different types of house where you can live in Madrid
Has everything that is going on made you think of changing houses or even lifestyle?
Our routines, our lifestyle and our way of seeing things have changed; for many, priorities and even tastes have also changed. If all this situation has made you rethink what type of house to live in, don’t worry, that’s where I come in, here is a list with the different types of houses where you can live in Madrid.
Do you think lockdown would have been better in a bigger house, with a garden, with views to a park?
You are not the only one.
After the last months of lockdown due to Covid19 we place more value on living in ampler spaces, with lots of light, with a balcony or terrace, with a garden or green common area, or with spacious views to a park.
So much time at home has given time to reflect on what we like or dislike, and whether were we currently live meets those real needs, or whether our house is comfortable, cozy and with easy upkeep. It’s not that we didn’t care before about all that, but maybe it wasn’t one of our priorities, we spent less time in our homes, and less time thinking about them.
Types of house to live in Madrid:
Detached or semi-detached houses (where only one family lives):
- Independent (detached) house. Usually has some land that can have different uses depending on the owner’s choice.
- Semi-detached house (or townhouse). Adjoining houses that can have their own garden or garage and that generally share common areas such as gardens, swimming pool or parking lot.
Condominiums, multi-family housing (where several families live): There are many types, to suit all tastes and needs.
In Madrid, like in most cities, one of the most common options is to live in a residential building. Depending on the area, some of them have gardens, swimming pool, garage and storage room.
And these are the different types of housing we can find:
- They usually have one bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom.
- The whole house is in the same room, except for the bathroom.
- Flat (or bigger apartment). Larger than an apartment, they have more rooms.
- With two floors connected by interior stairs.
- The top floor of a building, they usually have a terrace and views.
- Ground floor with garden. Apartment on the ground floor of the building with a private garden
- It is a property where the rooms are connected to each other creating a single open and bright space. The authentic loft is double height, as well as open plan.
It is very important to know what type of house suits you best, the budget you have, how much space you need depending on who you live with, what areas of Madrid you like the most, if you want to have a terrace, a garden or views of green areas.
