Patio Homes for Sale in Scottsdale

Are you in the market for a Scottsdale home with a tight-knit community? Do you want an upscale home with a low-maintenance yard and plenty of living space? A patio home in Scottsdale could be the perfect fit for you.

What is a Patio Home?

You may have wondered what a patio home is. Many people confuse patio homes with townhomes and condos.

Patio homes are attached single-family houses built in clusters. Typically, each home shares a wall with one other home.

Patio Homes Versus Townhomes

Townhomes are most commonly confused with patio homes. The main difference between the two dwellings is that while townhomes typically are two stories, patio homes only have one level and, on occasion, include one and a half stories. These half-stories regularly comprise a bedroom or loft area. While townhomes do not usually have extensive patios or private yards, patio homes do. Patio homes give more of a single-family home feel than townhomes. 

Patio Homes Versus Condos

Condos can be mistaken for patio homes, as well. However, there are significant differences between condos and patio homes. Other than sharing a wall with neighbors, there is little similarity between the two types of homes. Condo owners are only responsible for the living space, not the outdoors. Patio homeowners are accountable for their yard and home exterior because they own the lot their house is on, unlike condominium owners. Patio homes also do not share common areas with neighbors, as condos do, making them more private. 

Patio Home Communities

Patio homes are located in communities with amenities like condo and townhome communities. Scottsdale patio homes have fantastic amenities such as clubhouses for social events, fitness centers, pools, spas, and hiking trails, and many Scottsdale patio homes are located near golf courses.
