Why Are Single-Family Homes Perfect for Empty Nesters?


We all know that our lives happen in stages. When we switch from one stage to another, it can be a little unnerving. Your life has all of a sudden changed, and you have to get used to it. One of the biggest changes in life is when your children leave home. 

You and your spouse are now empty nesters. It’s a time of transition. This may be the perfect time to transition into a new house. Here’s why the modern home designs of Normandy Homes are perfect for empty nesters. 

Low Maintenance

The front yards in the Normandy Homes communities offer just enough space for a pet or to entertain company on the patio and are also maintained by the HOA. This means you don’t have to worry about hours of yard work, and you can spend your time doing things that you enjoy like traveling, exercising or spending time with friends and family. With the right amount of yard space and HOA maintenance, Normandy Homes offers empty nesters the ultimate in convenience and low maintenance living.

Space for the Whole Family

You may not always need the amount of space of a single-family home, but when the holidays come back around you’ll be glad you have it. Many of the new homes for sale in the Normandy Homes communities have 3 – 6 bedrooms. So even if you and your spouse only use one bedroom, you’ll have plenty of space for all your children. You could even turn one of the rooms into your home office, gym, or hobby room. 

Modern Home Designs

One of the most crucial elements is how your house is laid out. You have to make sure the floor plan is efficient and perfect for your lifestyle. For instance, if you enjoy hosting dinner parties and game nights, you would want an open floor plan like the Cadbury homes in Cottonwood Crossing. If your family is over often and you want the adults and the children to have their own areas, then you may want a floor plan like the Somerville homes in The Village at Twin Creek.
