Apartments vs. Townhouses: There Is a Difference!

June 02, 2021

Apartments and townhouses—they’re pretty much interchangeable, right? When searching for a new living space, you may gloss over those two terms, but they are very much worth your attention! Depending on your needs, you may thrive more in an apartment than a townhouse, or vice versa. At The Charles at Bexley, we are happy to offer both. Allow us to help you make your decision!


Two-bedroom GardenAre you an active person always on the go? Looking to keep down maintenance tasks and rent? An apartment may be the best choice for you! Usually part of a larger block of connected units, apartments generally tend to have less square footage than townhouses while keeping you closer to the action. Many apartments are accessed through a single building entrance, though at The Charles, select units feature your own patio or balcony entrance. With units ranging from 750 to 1440 sq ft, some even with walk-in closets and in-unit washers and dryers, apartment living at The Charles definitely won’t “cramp” your style! Enjoy sleek, renovated kitchens with updated appliances no matter which apartment floor plan you choose.

Townhome InteriorTownhouses, while often sharing a wall with a neighbor, feature amenities similar to those you would find in a single-family home: multiple stories, (and at The Charles, finished basements), laundry rooms, and private patios. Having a little more space makes the townhouse a perfect place to “nest,” and yes, grow a family,  while holding onto the apartment-like benefits of community amenities included in your rent. At The Charles, you can make yourself at home in a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath (1450 sq ft) or a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath (2200 sq ft) townhouse with conveniences galore right outside your private door!
