Single family homes are among the most popular of properties for investment.
Single family homes are among the most popular of properties for investment in Florida. In the United Kingdom they would be called ‘detached’ houses.
Typically offering internal dimensions from around 1500 square feet upwards, many single family homes are built on one level only (bungalow style) while others incorporate a second floor.
A typical home will offer three or more bedrooms – most if not all of them en-suite – a large well equipped kitchen, utility room, garage (usually at least big enough for two cars), a ‘nook’ or breakfast area, a large open plan family room and a substantial outside patio. A large percentage of Florida family homes will offer a private swimming pool.
A family home in Florida will typically offer around four times the space and amenities you would get for the same money in Europe.
Most single family homes are surrounded by mature lawns while many are located close to lakes, woodland, golf courses, ocean beaches . A club house complex will often offer residents exclusive use of facilities such as a communal swimming pool, gymnasium, library, children’s play area tennis courts and a ball park. It may include a restaurant.
A common feature in many single family home estates is the tasteful landscaping of the land around the houses, particularly in more exclusive estates.
Some single family homes are situated in ‘gated’ communities where the service charge includes 24 hour guards at the access points to the development, with intercom links to homes and often regular patrols by the guards.
