The Benefits of Buying a Townhome

19 September 2022

The nature of homeownership in Australia has changed significantly in the last ten years, with more and more people steering away from traditional houses in favour of the low-maintenance, comfortable lifestyle that townhomes provide. 

According to Smart Property Investor, townhomes are now a popular choice for downsizers, small families and investors, due to the lack of renovations required. 

If you’re looking to downsize your property and love the idea of joining our relaxed, coastal community, this blog discusses the benefits of buying a townhome and the opportunities you have to purchase one right here at The Point. 


Low maintenance lifestyle

It’s fair to say that the busyness of day-to-day life often gets in the way of home maintenance; the garden, the fence, the list goes on. If you’re looking for a home that compliments your busy lifestyle, townhomes are the perfect solution.  Spending more time enjoying your comfortable, spacious home without the added burden of maintenance costs? Sounds pretty good to us! 


Location, location 

Townhomes at The Point occupy an enviable location, facing onto the glistening waterways that surround our thriving community. Enjoy picturesque views from the comfort of your home and make the most of the parks, walking trails and even cafes on your doorstep! 



Looking for space and comfort without compromising on privacy? Townhomes offer the privacy of a house without the hustle and bustle of an apartment building.  Unlike most apartments, where you’re sharing hallways, lifts and lobbies, townhomes offer complete privacy, meaning the only thing you need to worry about sharing is your fence! 



Think moving into a townhome means less space? Think again. In fact, when compared to an apartment, townhomes offer an abundance of open space, due to their clever design and floorplan. With multiple levels, shared spaces and private rooms, there’s plenty of space for the home office or guest bedroom that you’ve been dreaming of. Better yet, when compared to houses, townhomes practically rival the amount of space and the number of bedrooms, without the additional price tag!   



When you purchase a townhome, you’re given a great opportunity to get to know your neighbours and foster a great sense of community. Whether it’s a group walk in the park, drinks on the patio or a hand taking the bins out, it’s great to know your neighbours are close by to give you a helping hand. 



When it comes to making the most of space, you’d be surprised what you can achieve in a townhome. With modern floorplans and open-plan living at the forefront, our Aurelia Place townhomes epitomise luxury, coastal living. With an abundance of natural light and cleverly designed floorplan, creating an unmatched sense of space and serenity, you’ll always feel comfortable at home. 


Street Appeal

Not only do the townhomes look incredible on the inside, but the striking facades visible across the water are also sure to turn heads. Admire your beautiful new home as you drive past and watch jealous on-lookers turn their heads! 


Turnkey solutions

Perhaps the most appealing feature of all, our townhomes are ready to move in, meaning everything you need is waiting for you! Think quality floor coverings, Smeg appliances all throughout, a fully-landscaped garden, laminate cabinetry and more. Simply turn the key and you’ll feel at home in an instant! 

The Point is home to a number of townhomes, including Briton Lane and Aurelia Place, the latter of which will soon be available for purchase. 

Designed by leading builder Hamlan Homes, these townhomes epitomise the luxurious, coastal heritage of the Bellarine Peninsula whilst providing a comfortable, spacious alternative to traditional houses.
