Choosing the perfect home for your retirement lifestyle can be challenging – after all, everyone’s wants and needs are different, and they’re changing all the time! Bungalows are considered one of the best choices for those planning for retirement, and not without reason. They’re flexible, convenient, and comfortable, and make the perfect compromise between a house and a condo. You still get to enjoy the peace and privacy of your own yard, with room to garden or entertain as you please, while also benefiting from single-storey living.
Flexible Bungalow Living
If you’re hesitant about bungalow living due to a lack of space, never fear. Bungalows can come in any shape and size, just like any traditional two-storey home! Quality Homes has bungalows across the spectrum, ranging from a compact 1,040 sq.ft. for those looking to downsize, but if you’re looking for more space for grandkids to come visit or to indulge in one of your many hobbies, Quality’s bungalows come as big as 2,630 sq.ft.! This spring, they even released a new collection of new and improved bungalow designs to meet the ever-changing needs of modern homeowners. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular bungalow layouts.
Compact & Convenient
The Homesteader: A charming ranch-style home, The Homesteader is perfect for those who would rather spend their time on enjoying life than maintaining a big home. At 1,040 sq.ft. it may sound small, but with a beautiful open concept kitchen and living room, 3 bedrooms, and a full-length front porch, it’s got everything you need.
The Riverstone: Our most popular design, The Riverstone is a 1,248 sq.ft. bungalow with versatile, 2-3 bedroom designs to accommodate your lifestyle. For those who are active and outdoorsy, there’s an option with a laundry/mudroom combo! For those seeking to indulge in a little more comfort, there’s an option with an ensuite bathroom and walk-in closet. It’s all about what YOU want.
Spacious & Stylish
The Elora: If you’re not looking to downsize yet, and need more space for your hobbies, dinner parties, or family and friends who often come and stay, The Elora might be the perfect fit for you. Unlike what many people think about bungalows, this model is a spacious 2,022 sq.ft. with a 2-car garage! It includes a beautiful formal dining room and front foyer alongside an open concept kitchen and living room, perfect for everyday living.
The Simcoe: At 1,647 sq.ft., The Simcoe is the perfect bungalow for your family. This spectacular and beautiful ranch-style house pairs the country home fantasy with a spacious design, which includes a grand living/dining room, and a large mudroom that leads to a wrap around porch or optional 2 car garage. With 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, The Simcoe has it all.
These homes serve as a beautiful example of the limitless opportunities that Quality Homes’ bungalows provide. With so many options to choose from, your perfect home can be found in their Design Collection.
