Single-Level Living: Perhaps One of the Best Decisions You’ll Ever Make

Why wait to live well every day? Single-level living offers convenience and the lack of having to climb up and down staircases all the time. Today’s single-level home designs, like those you’ll find with Epcon Communities, are just as spacious as you’d expect from a multi-level home. 

Epcon’s open floorplans make everyday living and entertaining for special occasions easy. Your family and visiting guests will like the convenience of a single-level home, too. If you want more space, you can add an optional second-level bonus suite to most Epcon home designs to create a designated guest room, den, hobby or art loft, media room or just a quiet retreat.

Many people associate single-level homes only with residences for retirees, or with the homes they grew up in during the 1950s, 60s and 70s. But there are many reasons why modern single-level homes work so well for so many lifestyles today. Just consider this:

  • Open spaces. Today’s architectural designs and structural engineering allow for open interior plans designed for family interaction and easy entertaining. Homes with multiple levels often don’t offer those advantages, given that their total square footage is divided among several floors and smaller rooms on each level.
  • Health and safety. By minimizing staircases, you minimize the risk of an older relative or a young child taking a dangerous fall. Not to mention the fact that it’s easier on the knees and allows you to live in one location for years to come as needs change.
  • Energy efficiency. Wouldn’t it be nice to have more predictable and manageable utilities costs? Single-level living, along with the efficiency of today's HVAC systems, insulation and construction processes, contribute to just that.
  • Convenience. Simply put, the convenience of having everything you need one one floor can’t be denied. Imagine sleeping, cooking, entertaining and doing laundry on the same level.

So, why wait? Make what may be the single most important decision of your lifetime, by choosing a new luxury single-level home from Epcon Communities. Find a community near you or contact us to experience the difference living well every day can make in your life.
