What is a Villa?

During the Roman Empire, a villa was defined as a country vacation home for the wealthy. The concept evolved over time, and for a while in the U.S., villas became known as modestly-sized, attached homes, grouped in senior living communities.

Today, villas are available in a range of sizes and price ranges, from sensibly-priced, modestly sized homes to luxurious, high-end estates. Grounds maintenance is included in the homeowners association fee, so villa owners still enjoy the greatest benefit—a carefree lifestyle.

Fischer & Frichtel’s Villa Communities in feature free-standing villa-style ranch and 1.5-story homes ranging from 1,347 to 2,113 sq. ft. These homes include 2-car garages, open living areas, and spacious master suites. They are coordinated in design and uniform in color, so they have a timeless, aesthetic, well-groomed look and feel. And, because lawn care, landscaping maintenance and snow removal are included, owners never have to worry about the condition of their yards—or their neighbor’s!

Villas are well-suited to empty nesters, busy professionals, people who travel often, and anyone else who just doesn’t want to cut grass, pull weeds, trim bushes and shovel snow. For even more living space, buyers have the option to finish the lower level, adding a bedroom or two and a full bathroom to accommodate children or guests.
