Talk about what’s old is new again. Multi-generational living is on the rise — but this trend is anything but trendy. It’s simply how people lived until the last century or so. And for good reason. Today’s families have rediscovered the financial win-win of sharing a home, as well as the convenience of, say, grandparents caring for little ones. Or, when elders need support, having them just steps away. Nexton’s homebuilders are answering the call with homes that flex to every kind of family. With dual master suites, senior accessibility and even detached casitas to give your college kiddo or mom some extra independence.
Multi-gen homes from the mid $400s
The multi-gen choices are many at Midtown — just like the village itself. Midtown has something for everyone in the family, from the Midtown Club (home of everything from a pool to pickleball courts), to nearby places to shop, eat and run your errands. Several Ashton Woods floorplans provide options for stair-free, first-floor guest suites. Need more privacy? Add a FROG (finished room over garage) to The Witherbee for your not-quite-out-of-the-nest-yet kids. New Leaf gives you the option of detached casitas for all of its plans. Then again, sometimes the solution is as simple as good space between the primary and secondary bedrooms, like Homes By Dickerson’s Drayton plan or Topsail by Saussy Burbank. And don’t miss Pulte Homes’ full-on multi-gen suite, complete with kitchenette and conveniently on the main floor of its Northridge plan.Midtown multis
