Coach Homes

Coach houses are high-end, luxury condos with just four homes per building. These unique plans have many benefits in both form and function; they offer additional square footage over other alternatives within their price point.

The floors between each residence are poured concrete, offering exceptional sound insulation to make it an ideal place for peaceful living or entertaining guests at any time of day.

Attached villas can be called the ‘best of both worlds’ between independence and convenience. Like a single-family home, the residents own the land and property, but like a condominium or townhome, some extra amenities are added in. Ownership comes with complete landscaping maintenance, roof replacement reserves for exterior painting, or even custom extended lanais if you own your land with HOA Arch Committee-approved designs. Floorplans feature granite countertops, porcelain floor tile, oversized garden tubs, and two-car garages.
