Duplex Homes - Affordable Living In Desirable Communities

Posted by Kensington Homes Team on January 10, 2020

There are many efficiencies, including cost savings, to benefit from by sharing a wall with another home – all while maintaining the benefits of your own separate living space and entrance. Before you rule duplexes out, consider this: Kensington has brand-new homes with all the modern layouts, building efficiencies and finishes you’re looking for in a new home, for as much as $100,000 less than our typical single, detached homes. This means you can get into a desirable new neighborhood like Bonavista, benefitting from all of its surrounding amenities.  


More, for Less
Duplex homes come with all the same designs and finishes you would find in other home styles like a bungalow or 2-storey. The difference in a duplex home is getting to have all the same features than any other home style, but for much less of the cost. You still have the square footage that allows for 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, lots of room for a growing family with even some extra space for a laundry room. A full driveway, garage and backyard also is included.

Other costs including the down payment, land transfer tax and property taxes will be lower too. These upfront costs will be much less, making it more affordable to live in a brand new modern home.
At Kensington, all duplex homes include the following top-of-the-line standard finishes:

• 3” MDF baseboards and casings
• Decora switches
• LED lighting
• Triple pane & dual Low E windows
• Insulated overhead garage door with opener, one remote and one keypad
• Stainless steel hood fan in kitchen
• Double compartment stainless steel kitchen sink with one-handle high arc pulldown Moen faucet
• Selection of 1 of the 7 interior colours from Standard DULUX paint colours offered

High Re-Sale Value
Duplex homes can be seen as having a good re-sale value too. Whether you’re a first time home buyer or ready to settle down with less yard work but still have a 3 bedroom/2.5 bath floor plan, this is the perfect home style for you. For multi-generational living, families love the privacy that a separate living space offers – and the convenience of being near the ones you love. Sometimes home buyers go over their budget just to find a home that is appealing for them, but a duplex home will fit your budget and give you all the extras.
