Do you think that bungalows are for older people only?
Closed

We are looking for a house and recently have seen some nice bungalows with huge gardens. In many countries all over the world houses are one storey only, why in the UK bungalows are considered as houses for older or disabled people? We are young and see no point in going up and down the stairs everyday for the rest of our lives! Bungalow is just like a flat or apartment with garden, isn't it?

Hi, No they can be for anyone, the reason peolpe think that way is that people who have difficulty with stairs will often buy or rent them which makes sense but that doesn't mean no one else is allowed to, I nearly purchased a really nice one when was 21 but the sale fell through at the last minute, I still walk past that same bungalow quite often & wish it was mine, it has had so many owners over the years.

Hi Honeysuly ..... I would quite happily live in a bungalow and I am neither elderly nor disabled and yes it is just like a flat or apartment with the added advantage of having no neighbours above or below and its own roof space which can always be converted if the need arises !!!!

we are looking at houses too and have included bungalows in our search. there are many nice ones but we'd need a big one as a family of 5 and that seems to be a problem. i have found a few larger ones but with that comes a lot more roof space to fix, a huge damp course, more windows at ground level for break ins.... these are some things that worry me about them and you should think about them too.

No, I know younger families who live in bungalows - I think it is dependent upon property prices and what is available in your area

No not at all, if you see one you like, go for it! There used to a be a bungalow across the road from us that had a family with 3 kids living there.

I bought a bungalow in my mid twenties. You're right, it was just like a flat with a garden and useful attic space. I now live in a flat and I often miss the garden.

I think bunglows are for everyone. Although bunglows are popular with the elderly, but younger people also buy them if they find the location to be nicer. All depends on choice.
