Horne gives owners a home, income potential
There are definitely some economic advantages to building and owning a duplex. You not only get more for your building dollar; you develop an investment property with an excellent earning potential. You can make the entire property a rental or claim one for your own residence and rent one. Either way, it is an attractive situation and not to be overlooked by someone contemplating retirement or anyone wanting to invest in the future.
Comely wood exterior and covered porches add a quiet charm to the Horne (403-48). The placement of the garages creates a private entrance for each unit. Unit one, positioned to the left, is slightly smaller than the second unit. The 269 square foot garage has room for a washer and dryer and provides a convenient entrance to the house. Groceries can be unloaded with minimum effort in a safe atmosphere.
The floor design of unit one has the kitchen to the front and it features a full range of built-in appliances. The dining room and generous living room are open to each other, with sliding glass doors leading to a back patio. The two bedrooms, separated by a full bathroom, each contain liberal closet space and a large window. Linen storage is available in the hall.
Although unit two has only 908 square feet of living space, it seems much larger. The two good-sized bedrooms are located in the rear of this floor design. A full bathroom separates them and each features a handy built-in desk and a big closet. The walk-in kitchen, complete with built-ins, is roomy and has an attached utility closet.
The dining area and extended living room is open, providing ample room for entertaining. The nice-sized patio is a great place to soak up the sun or break out the barbecue. The garage is accessible from inside the unit.
