Semi-modern row houses have their roots in London. It was during the 1700s that the first row houses were constructed. Similar to apartment homes, row houses reduce the amount of space that it takes to house people.

Row houses offer surprisingly stylish amenities

The dwellings also make it easy to reach neighbors. For some people, it's hard to feel alone while living in a row house. Additionally, as they did when they were first erected, row houses offer as much interior space as traditional single homes.

If there are drawbacks with row houses, it's the narrow hallways that the houses may have. On the other hand, you might absolutely love narrow hallways in a row house. Pictures hung on walls lining both sides of hallways can attract your attention,delighting  you with appreciation as you make your way through the house.

In addition to narrow passageways, row houses are also known for having hardwood floors. For example, a New York City, Philadelphia or Baltimore brownstone might come with cherry hardwood floors. More amenities that you can find and enjoy while living in a row house include:

  • Staircases that turn the higher up they go - Row houses with narrow staircases offer safety in that they make it easy to regain balance by placing your hands against the walls.
  • Intimate dining rooms - You won't feel far away from family and friends while eating or entertaining in a row house dining room. If there's a window in the room, you can observe a bird as it plays or takes flight just outside your home.
  • Antique fireplaces - Red brick might surround your row house fireplace. Add in an antique stove if the kitchen is near the fireplace and you could feel like you've stepped back in time even while you enjoy modern amenities in the house.
  • Large windows - Modern windows introduce lots of light inside your row house. You may love the natural light.
  • Simple ceiling designs - You might not spot many row houses with popcorn ceilings. But, don't be surprised if you come across row houses with simply designed crown molded ceilings.
  • Open floor plans - Don't be surprised if your row house doesn't have lots of doors. These houses are often designed with open floor plans.
  • Multi-levels - With row houses, you may get a finished basement and a finished attic, giving you more room to accommodate overnight guests.

Row houses are a bountiful history

It's not just their stylish exterior, row houses are a great buy because of their access to entertainment, dining and work environments. Live in Baltimore, Maryland, the city in America that has the most row houses, and you can enjoy a broad range of amenities.

There are row houses that are rich with history. In fact, some row houses were integral to the Underground Railroad. Other row houses are former homes of history makers like community and social leaders, educators, scientists and entertainers.
