A Virginia builder has hit on a winning combination of style and square footage to make its townhome developments feel anything but high-density.

Miller & Smith's award-winning Meritage townhome at Grapevine Ridge in Clarksburg, Md., is popular with buyers for its spacious floor plan that lives like a single-family home. The 2,332-square-foot unit features three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a gourmet kitchen, great room, and private courtyard connecting the kitchen to the garage.
