5 Reasons Why Columbus Townhomes Exceed Condos
May 02, 2019

For people who want the convenience of apartment-style living with a few more amenities and upscale touches, a condominium can be an attractive option. Columbus offers plenty of condos, but they aren’t the only choice for people who are thinking about living in a smaller space and want it to have a splash of luxury.

The Charles at Bexley, conveniently located off of I-70 and US-33, provides easy access to the endless opportunities for work and play that Columbus has to offer, but without the standstill traffic. And unlike most condos, the townhome apartments at The Charles offer residents opportunity for community, individuality, and savings on fees. Here are a few of the reasons why you might want to choose Charles living over condo living.


Front Door Parking

Forget about hauling groceries up elevators or stairs. With a townhome apartment, you can park in front of your place and walk right up to your own door. Home, sweet home, in no time!

Freedom to Individualize

When you live among the hallways and doors of a condominium building, it can be easy to lose a sense of identity. With townhome apartments, you have the freedom to decorate the outside of your home, whether that means pumpkins in the fall, holiday lights in the winter, or containers overflowing with colorful flowers in the spring and summer. The Charles feels more like a neighborhood of individuals than a building of anonymous addresses.

Proximity to the Great Outdoors

When you live in a condo building, getting out for a few minutes can feel like too much of a hassle to be worth it. At The Charles, you don’t have to go far to get a breath of fresh air. You’re just steps from a dog park, pool, volleyball courts, basketball courts, tennis courts, and pickleball. You live on the literal doorstep of opportunity!

Community Focus

Many people in condos keep to themselves, but for someone who likes the idea of community-based living, a townhome in an upscale apartment community is ideal. Meet up at the pool, fitness center, or dog park, or attend planned monthly social events to make new friends. Grill together, hike local trails, or talk over a cup of coffee—a fresh pot is always on!

No HOA Fees

Not only do condos have HOA fees, but the association also meets and makes decisions about a lot of pesky details, from the length of flag poles to “approved paints.” Depending on the personalities and values of the people in your association, these meetings and the decisions that govern the community can become a huge headache.

HOA fees notwithstanding, condos in downtown or close to downtown Columbus are extremely expensive. The Charles at Bexley positions you close to downtown without the high cost of living there.


When it comes to condos vs. townhomes in Columbus, The Charles has condos beat. For more information about our floor plans and amenities, visit our site and schedule your tour today.
