Townhomes have been around for a long time. Historically, they were built in urban centers. These days, they’re in most towns and cities as property prices continue to rise. I know in my neck of the woods (Vancouver), townhouses are the norm in many area because they are a great solution to escalating real estate costs yet provide more space than apartments.
More and more families are living in townhomes, even in more suburban areas. As a result, they are being built large enough for families. While you can buy them at all price points, some are truly beautiful homes built for the luxury market, especially in dense urban centers such as NYC, Boston, London and other large cities. Even in Vancouver where I live, townhomes cost millions of dollars.
In cities like NYC, Boston and London, many townhomes are in old structures, so it’s common to gut and totally renovate them. You’ll see several high-end townhouse renovations below as well as new-builds.

We kick off our collection with a truly stunning townhouse that is both beautiful and huge. This large home goes on and on – it doesn’t seem like a townhouse at all.
