When you get older, the knees cooperate much less, as do some other joints. That’s probably when it’s time you need to buy a Cariari single story home.
Why in Cariari might you ask? Well, there are quite some good reasons and even more benefits to buying a Cariari single story home. The best part of the story is that there are quite a few Cariari single story homes on the market.
The main reason is that Cariari, also called Ciudad Cariari, is almost flat. Costa Rica has lots of mountains, hills, and valleys. But Cariari is practically flat.
The words single story home is also often searchable in Google as a one-story home or a one storey home, depending on the nationality of the English spoken person.
Let’s go through the benefits of a Cariari single story home
1. Cheaper to cool
Cariari offers warmer weather such as Santa Ana and Atenas. Do you like to keep your Cariari single story home cool? You will save on your energy bills because it’s much cheaper to keep a single story home cool than a 2-story home
2. Beautiful neighborhood
The topography of Cariari is practically flat. In addition, there are sidewalks all over the neighborhood, so you can walk without any risks. Even the Club Cariari golf course is walkable without having to damage your knees.
3. Lower maintenance cost
Single story homes have much lower maintenance costs and repairs. The main reason is that everything is easy to access. Cleaning gutters on a one-story home is much easier than cleaning them on a 2nd story.
4. More generous floor space
Obviously, a staircase takes up a lot of space in a house, even though this usually also creates more storage. A staircase needs a lot of valuable floor space on both floors.
5. Fewer accidents
A single story home has a much higher degree of safety. There is no risk of falling down the stairs and easier to evacuate during a fire.
6. Handicap Accessible
A single story house is or can be made handicap accessible easily. However, if you like a 2-story home better, stairlift installation is a great option.
7. Easier cleaning
A single story house is much easier to clean than a two or more story house.
Carrying dirty laundry downstairs and then carrying it back upstairs when it’s clean is hard work.
Is there is a dark area in the house? Then it is easy to build a skylight on the roof.
