At­trac­tive­ness from the street isn’t the only draw for the Domingo town­home.

This end-unit floor plan makes the most of de­tails in its de­sign, such as over­size, wide stair­cases and deep win­dows throughout, to give the home a spa­cious feel. The two-storey town­home is 1,481-square-feet with three bed­rooms up­stairs. It’s one of three show homes by Innovation­s by Jay­man in Cha­parral Val­ley.

Two show homes are de­tached sin­gle-fam­ily homes, while the Domingo show­cases the street-front town­homes.

The front and back foy­ers fea­ture tile floor and have clos­ets for stor­ing coats. The rest of the open-con­cept main floor has lam­i­nate hard­wood in a medium-dark stain.

A gen­er­ous great room of­fers plenty of room for seat­ing.

Giv­ing an ex­tra sense of space and light to the din­ing area, the end unit has a bay win­dow along the side of the home.

The kitchen has a penin­sula with a flush break­fast bar that seats three and a lam­i­nate coun­ter­top, and dark wood cab­i­nets in a flat, mod­ern style.

Ap­pli­ances are stain­less steel. Above the dou­ble stain­less steel sink and glass tile back­splash is a large win­dow with a view to the fenced back­yard.

Be­low the win­dow is a handy built-in shelf that will keep plants happy and out of the way.

The main floor pow­der room is tucked away down two steps on the way to the base­ment.

In the mid­dle of the home, be­tween the stair­cases lead­ing up and down, is a nook set aside with stub walls. It’s a great spot for a small desk to or­ga­nize keys and com­put­ers.

Up­stairs, the level opens into a foyer with a spe­cial spot handy for a bookshelf or even a dog bed.

Two good-size sec­ondary bed­rooms over­look the back of the home. They share the main four-piece bath­room off the hall­way.

The mas­ter bed­room opens up at the front of the home. It fea­tures gen­er­ous dual clos­ets and a tidy four-piece en­suite with an oval win­dow. Win­dows on two walls give the room an airy feel.

Down­stairs, the base­ment fea­tures a large rec room set up as a com­fort­able place to watch tele­vi­sion. A guest bed­room has deep wide win­dows on two walls, and a gen­er­ous walk-in closet.

The lower level also has a full bath­room, and ex­tra stor­age space.

Ti­tle for these units is bare land condo, mean­ing a se­ries of homes that are built and sold in­di­vid­u­ally. The monthly condo fees are fairly low at $98 per month, as they do not in­clude main­te­nance of the fenced back­yards or snow re­moval.

The fees do cover build­ing in­sur­ance and main­te­nance of com­mon land on the boule­vard and sides of the build­ing.

Town­homes come with a park­ing pad, over which a car port can be built, with lane ac­cess.

Bump­ing out the wall with a bay win­dow pro­vides a great sense of space to the din­ing area.

The kitchen fea­tures a penin­sula with flush eat­ing bar, pro­vid­ing ex­tra space for food prepa­ra­tion.

The base­ment rec room pro­vides a per­fect place to watch TV.

A desk fits be­tween the stairs to the up­per and lower lev­els.

Space at the top of the stairs can be used for a dog bed or a set of shelves.
