New and Noteworthy: A Selection of Exceptional Townhouse Listings

The townhouse market has always appealed to a certain kind of buyer—one attracted to formal living, period detail, outdoor space and the like. Recently, however, the townhouse market has appeared to expand somewhat. Part of this, perhaps, can be seen as due to an influx of brokers marketing townhouses. In the past, “most brokers wouldn’t sell townhouses, because they didn’t know about them and it’s kind of a specialty,” said Douglas Elliman broker George van der Ploeg, who specializes in townhouses. “Now, as prices are going up, more and more non-townhouse brokers are getting into townhouses, because it is so lucrative.”

But the definition of townhouse has also morphed; no longer are they necessarily convenience-challenged structures from a previous century. “People have always gravitated towards apartments, and not townhouses, because of services. Now, there is a new service, called virtual doormen—before, there was a big worry for townhouses as to how you are going to get the delivery without a doorman, but now, there is a way to do that, which was never there before,” Corcoran broker Thomas Wexler said. These days, then, it’s possible to get the aesthetic with expedience.
