The term "townhouse" is translated to English means "town house". This phenomenon is actually a native of Old England, and maintains its count at the end of 18 century. In Britain at that time to make extensions to their homes, where it was possible to settle the older generation, children and relatives. The opportunity arose around the family clan to live side by side, and at the same time, each had its own territory. The practice caught on, and after a few years these houses were built on purpose, because it was very convenient.

After some time the trend has penetrated the erection of townhouses and outside England, finding a good use throughout Europe.
It is interesting that in the Ukrainian capital, the first townhouses appeared not in the suburbs, as might be expected, and in Kyiv. They were constructed on a special project in the area Lukyanovka company LKS.

Later, the format of housing has spread to suburban real estate market, by virtue of advantages compared with traditional cottages, villas and other buildings. Townhouse was a good solution for those who dream of living outside the city, but did not have sufficient funds to purchase a cottage. Thus, the people of Kiev who desire to live outside the city today can choose from a large number of proposals designed for different thickness of the purse.
The proposed houses are not only cost but also the type of housing, and townhouses in this market are a relatively new format. Excess of supply over demand makes consumers think that all the same to choose from: an apartment in the capital, small and in the sleeping area, or all of the same town house - in fact, a separate housing outside gassed the noisy city, so even a small plot of land. And to think there is something.

Country Life, of course, promises many benefits, but should take into account a number of other things. For example, what to buy and build townhouses not to relax on weekends or during the summer season. This is a shelter for permanent residence. And if the house is located near the busy highway, where traffic jams - a common phenomenon, then too much time to go out to get to and from work.
In addition, it is necessary that in the village of townhouses there own infrastructure. Sometimes these small towns built in the vicinity of existing settlements, with the already established infrastructure. But in this case lost the idea of living outside the city. Heavy traffic and high-rise in sight, "will defeat" the efforts of a citizen who wants to live closer to nature.
"The minimum set for any townhouse - a school, a polyclinic, a nursery school. But it is expensive and significantly increases the cost of their construction cost per square meter in the newly constructed", says Victor Kovalenko, the director of "RealEkspo. Several real estate experts tend to believe that after a while the demand for this product will be reduced, and this kind of suburban housing will lose in price.
It is assumed that the wealthy citizens wishing to buy a country house, in the presence of a large amount will still choose full-fledged cottage. Those who do not have sufficient funds, would prefer townhouses.
