Buying a house is an exciting experience for every Filipino. A home is a representation of one’s hardwork in life. More than an investment, it provides comfort, safety, and brings loved ones together. But with many different house types in the Philippines, it can also be challenging to find one that would best match your preferred size, budget, design, and lifestyle.
There are several types of houses and lots built by the top subdivision developers in the Philippines. To help you choose the right kind of property, we’ve listed down the five different house types in the Philippines. These include bungalow, condominium, townhouse, single attached, and single detached.
Bungalow is one of the most recognizable house types in the Philippines. It refers to a single-storey house and all the rooms can be found on the same floor. Quite commonly seen inside private subdvidision in the Philippines, many old houses in the country were built as bungalows.
Bungalow houses are often characterized as having sloped roofs, sprawling front porches, and open floor plans. They are the ideal house type for families with older and disabled loved ones that find it hard to go up the stairs. Their low design makes it easy move around from one space to another.
Bungalows also known for being charming and outright simple. It is up to the homeowner where to set divide the different areas, making them recommendable for small families who want a more spacious home.
A condominium refers to a unit space in a mid-rise or high-rise residential building. Each unit space can have different owners and individual titles. The unit you own can be a studio-type, one-, two-, or three-bedroom. As a condo owner, you will be able to share access to the building’s amenities like swimming pools, fitness gyms, and more.
Living in condominiums is ideal for young professionals. Given that these are typically located in urban cities and central business hubs, it will be easier to go to and from work. However, condominiums are also known for offering limited living spaces, which may mean they are not ideal for bigger families.
A townhouse is another very popular house type in the Philippines wherein the homes are all lined up in a row and share a common wall. These properties also have their designated carports and front yards.
Townhouses are known for being more affordable than other property types (e.g., condominiums, single-detached, single attached) in the country. If you’re on a budget but don’t want to sacrifice the quality of your living space, then a townhouse might be ideal for you. Along with being more economical, townhouses also offer just the right size for starter families and medium families that need more space than condominiums. For those who want to earn passive income, you may opt to rent out your townhouse before moving into a much larger house later on.
Many top real estate developers in the Philippines further enhanced townhouse communities by featuring a myriad of amenities that residents can use to improve their lifestyles. Take the Pueblo de Oro Townscapes Malvar – Pewter for instance. In this Batangas property, the townhouses are located inside a sprawling village that is surrounded by relaxing green spaces, a futsal lawn, fitness area, multi-purpose court, kite/frisbee lawn, playground, event lawn, and clubhouse. In simple words, some townhouses in the Philippines play a role in self-sustained living.
A single attached house and lot refers to a residential property wherein one wall is shared with a neighbor. There would be a big space on either the right side or left side of the house, and there would be a spacious front and backyard as well.
Single attached are ideal for being relatively affordable because their house dimension is similar to the property being shared a wall with. Given that single attached homes are next to each other, they are also the recommended house type in the Philippines for extended families who need to live close (e.g. elderly relatives).
Another often overlooked benefit when living in a single attached home is that it builds a greater sense of community. Your neighbours can watch over your house to keep it free from crime or harm when you are away.
With a contemporary Asian design, Pueblo de Oro Park Place Pampanga 2 single attached homes are designed to meet your home expansion plans with its open floor plan. Choose to have up to 2 bedrooms that don’t compromise your family’s comfort.
Buying your property evokes a sense of fulfillment. However, buying a single-detached home offers a better overall life quality. Contrary to single attached homes, single-detached properties are those that do not share a wall with neighbors, thus, offering more privacy to homeowners.
Single-detached homes are ideal for bigger or growing families. They give residents more space to move around, offering a heightened level of privacy not achieved in condominiums. There are open spaces on the property’s side, front, and back area.
If you want to want to maximize your lot and floor area, you can easily do so with a single detached property in the Pueblo de Oro Horizon Residences Pampanga. Here, the 2-story Sakura single detached homes are built with 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 toilets and baths. You have complete freedom to personalize your home to suit your family’s needs.
