In addition, if the cottage is middle class housing, the houses tend to acquire the property tycoons. Accordingly, service houses requires special supervision by qualified personnel. In this regard, the villa is close to the palace, but differs from it informally: there is no electron halls.
Usually villa protivopostavletsya castle as a place of rest fortified hideout. Appearing in ancient Rome villas give way to the castle in the Middle Ages.
The first houses appeared in ancient Rome, and they refer to any country house. As the imperial villa was converted into an analog cottages - country house for the holidays: farmland on the farm area have given way to parks. Thus was born the phenomenon of "Roman villa. A special feature of the villa was the fact that she was not "family nest". The villa owners have lived her for a while in the year.
Since 19 century, became known as villas in comfortable private house, surrounded by a garden or park, located in the best areas of the city, in suburbs, in kurornyh field, simply beautiful corners luxurious nature.

Elling - a two-or three-story boat garage. On the first floor of the boat, yacht - anything that can walk on the sea. And on the upper floors of living - a rest that the boat owners (or their guests).
Elling may be converted for residential purposes, which are cottages in miniature. Owners slipways used them as hotels for those wishing to spend a family vacation at the shore of the Black Sea. The fact that the boathouses often located directly on the beach, so the fans to rest under a slight rustle of the surf can get lasting impression of their stay at the dock.
Elling is usually well equipped - consist of 2-3-rooms for 2-3 persons with all amenities (TV, refrigerator, air conditioner, bathroom with shower), plus a hallway and kitchen. As an additional convenience to the boathouse may attend a sauna, fireplace, kitchen-dining room, a place for the car. Typically, one of the rooms has a balcony from which spectacular sea view.

Duplex - a kind of a country house, which consists of two isolated,
spacious apartments, each of which adjoins a small plot of land.
Apartments in the duplex as separate as possible from each other. Common to both apartments is only one wall.
Usually, are common and all communications and engineering systems apartments, but can be independent.

Duplex, as a kind of suburban real estate, appeared in our country not so long ago. Duplexes replaced multifamily and townhouses have already won their niche, because they have a number of significant advantages.
In contrast, townhouses, excluding all the negative aspects of living in an apartment house. A lack of "side" of apartments allows you to design an apartment in the duplex as close to the cottage.
Duplex in its planning and quality of accommodation is the closest to the cottage country real estate form. But with a clear advantage in price.
Duplex chooses someone who appreciates the comfort and privacy of a city apartment cottage; relatives wishing to live near, but not together.
Duplex - this is a very convenient form of housing for a family of several generations. The older generation is living in one apartment, a young family - in another. To achieve such freedom and independence of the two generations of the family in the cottage will not.
A small piece of land adjacent to each duplex apartment will provide an opportunity to create a beautiful flower, but cut short the attempts of the older generation to plant it "useful" plants, and prevent the danger of serving the labor conscription younger family members.
According to Victor Kovalenko, the 12 duplexes site, the most noted in the Kiev region (5) with an average price of 1 sq.m -1362 dollars. The lowest price recorded in the Sumy region -570 dol. / m

Cottage in cottage settlement

There are mainly two-storey with internal staircase: Originating in England in the late 16 - early 17 centuries., K. became a traditional type of English homes. K. widespread as in other European countries (mainly in Scandinavia) and the U.S..

Housing estates in Ukraine - a residential complexes, stored in a single architectural style, with good transport accessibility, safe accommodation, modern utilities, the optimal number of houses or town houses and developed a complete infrastructure.
Ability to be closer to nature, outdoors, do not limit yourself to the walls of city apartments, to live away from the endless noise gassy streets metropolis - this is what can give buying a country cottage or a townhouse.
The village - a traditional way of suburban life in the presence of modern technology, it is comfort of the city and the magic of nature.
Accommodation in the cottage is not only not inferior to urban apartments on the level of comfort, but often surpass them.
One cottage village is different from other parts of his situation, concept, idea creation, project houses, availability of infrastructure, contingent residents. There is a closed club village, cottage settlement for the middle class, as well as the cottage village economy class.
Club cottage settlement - this is an elite of wealthy people, where only a few homes, usually with large areas. Club cottage villages are located on the most prestigious areas close to metropolitan areas. In addition, through the club cottage village necessarily the idea of its creation, which are oriented and builders and buyers.
In the cottage-secondary or economy class is constructed, usually from 100 to 500 houses of different size with small and medium-sized plots of land. All cottages in a cottage village have a unified architectural appearance and more densely adjoin to each other.
Recently, in economy class there is a tendency of building a cottage village with townhouses, that multi-level houses on several hosts.
Housing estates are mainly economy class is not the most prestigious areas.

But it is worth remembering that the choice of country cottages is significantly different from the choice of a city apartment. If you choose an apartment in your area depends on the layout and parameters of the apartment, the choice of a country house is inseparable from a cottage village. There are important: planning a cottage village, the location of the cottage in the framework of the settlement, convenience of access roads and distance from the road, the presence or at least provided the necessary infrastructure facilities. All these parameters can be assessed only on the site, please visit the cottage village. But, considering that today in Ukraine is more than 500 cottage villages, to visit and evaluate all - an impossible task. To do this we have created our country real estate portal
According to the director of the company "RealEkspo" Victor Kovalenko, of 386 houses, 192 are located in the Kiev region, followed by Crimea (51), third in Odessa Oblast (45).
The most expensive is a "square" in the cottages Crimea -2657 dollars.
In the literal translation from English leynhaus - "the house in an alley. "In format leynhaus the same type of interlock housing, as well as townhouses. This is a "molded" into a single series at home. In the "file" can be three, four, and five sections. "(As in town" Fairy Tale "in Kiev).
In the short term leynhausy may become one of the main ways the diversity of typical suburban development. Any leynhaus, in contrast to the townhouse has its own individually decorated facade. The number of facade "splash" on each section is not limited. On the one hand, everything depends on imagination and experience of the architect, on the other - from the taste and finances of the customer. This "trick" allows the settlement does not lose its brightness and attractiveness and at the same time be comfortable. Semi-Detached leynhausy more like urban housing, but the talent of the architect to avoid the dreary cliches model building.
The total area of a separate section may be from 350 to 500 square meters. m at 6-10 hundred parts of land, while the townhouses countdown starts from 120 m and the average plot near the house is equal to 1,5 weave. We architect Alexey Ivanov own point of view on this question: "The total area of leynhausah should be between 120 to 250 square meters. m, which is the most rational and beneficial for the buyer and the seller. On the one hand, available for the middle class. On the other - to build the house blocked a larger area does not make sense. For accommodation there and then rises in the price, that gives the buyer a reason to think: is not it better for the same price to buy a cottage? "
