How do you feel about your neighborhood? Is it a place you enjoy? What about the neighbors? What about amenities? Are you happy your children go to the local schools? In sum, make sure that the neighborhood is the right fit. Take to heart the old adage that you can always fix a house but you can't fix a neighborhood.
There's also a townhouse version in federal architecture. Many original Adam townhouses, both attached row houses and narrow detached urban houses, still exist. They're concentrated in cities like Boston, Philadelphia, Georgetown and Savannah. Townhouse developments are becoming increasingly popular as part of an effort to conserve space and facilitate pedestrian zones. Most such developments built today are modeled on federal style.Tell us: What do you think about the federal, or Adam, style? Are you ready to embrace it, or do you prefer to admire it from afar?
