Real estate 101: What is a garden home?
Rancho Sienna offers garden homes priced from the mid $300,000s by Sitterle Homes, and their fully furnished San Saba model home is absolutely gorgeous.
Exactly what is a garden home, compared to a traditional single-family home?
The name, garden home, offers a clue. Like their traditional counterparts, garden homes are also detached, single-family homes, but with smaller yards. These compact backyards are perfect for landscaping with low-maintenance, giving rise to the name, garden home.
Garden homes are also sometimes called garden homes or villas.
Garden homes are ideal for anyone who wants all the advantages of living in a detached single-family home, but with less yard maintenance. In some communities, including Rancho Sienna, yard maintenance is provided for homeowners, for an additional fee, creating the ultimate low-maintenance lifestyle.
Because of their appeal to empty nesters wanting to scale down, among other groups, most garden home designs are single-story. Some two-story and one-and-a-half-story designs are also usually offered.
With their low-maintenance appeal, garden homes offer residents more time to enjoy amenities, such as the 100+ acres of parks, trails and natural open spaces in Rancho Sienna, and all the natural and cultural attractions of Austin and the Hill Country.
