The Pew Research Center estimates almost 20% of U.S. households are currently made up of multiple generations, with the number expected to increase by 2030. Couples are not only sharing their homes with their kids, but also their own parents or in-laws. To accommodate this growing trend, developers have designed models with suites so each family member can have their privacy, but also live under one roof. Stanley Martin Homes is the newest builder to do add this type of home with their Russel model, according to the Washington Post’s Michele Lerner.
The model is now being offered in three northern Virginia communities and essentially has an apartment attached to the house. The space includes a bedroom, living area, full bathroom, kitchenette, laundry area, and one-car garage.
The Russell, which has a total of four bedrooms and four to six bathrooms, can be configured with 3,847 to 6,800 square feet. The base price is about $1.13 million at Summerhouse Landing in Herndon.
The multigenerational houses are also available at Greenwood Farm in Haymarket and are coming to Potomac Reserve in Manassas.Read More
