Kishan Thakkar K

Among the characteristics of a luxury house are space, luxurious amenities, privacy, exclusivity, breathtaking views, and comfort that is unparalleled.

Penthouses, duplex houses, and luxury villas are some of the options available for luxury houses.

Below we have the explanations of each of the four housing properties

  1. Penthouse

Usually, a penthouse is located on the topmost floor of a building. This is the most prestigious location and is coveted by affluent and classy customers. Penthouses offer additional amenities and are preferred over other apartments in a building.

  1. Duplex

Usually, duplexes are made up of two apartments set within the same building with two separate entrances leading to two separate residences. Actually, the duplex house plan refers to a single-family house built over two stories, including a dining room and kitchen. 

  1. Villa

The term “Villa” refers to a standalone property built on a predetermined plot, which includes its own gardens, swimming pools, lawns, and terrace gardens, among other amenities. Villas are often part of gated communities.

There is a fundamental difference between villas and duplexes. A duplex flat is the living space for a single family, and it consists of the kitchen and living area located on two separate stories. A villa typically has one floor of living space.
