Although high-rise flats and multi-storey buildings are a prominent feature in large cities, there are many people interested in buying a single storey home in Madrid. This is quite reasonable, given the advantages of such a home and the comfort it brings to different groups of the population who have mobility issues.
In fact, the clear advantage is the improvement of accessibility, a determining factor for the elderly or those affected by physical problems that hinder their mobility. In addition, a single storey or a ground floor flat allows more active enjoyment of the outdoor spaces, making life more pleasant.
Another benefit of the ground floor dwellings is related to the simplicity of maintenance, evident, for example, in the cleaning of windows and outside facades. In addition, this type of property can easily be extended without having to make any modifications to its roof.
On the other hand, we must take into account that in these homes there is no need for stairs or top floor rooms so the relationship between the constructed area and the actual living space is more favourable and optimised.
To make an example of all these advantages, Engel & Völkers offers all its clients who wish to buy a property in Madrid the following two properties, both located in exclusive locations and equipped with all amenities.
