An Address for Every Chapter: Pahlisch Traditional Homes 101
At Pahlisch, we know that finding the “perfect” home is a deeply personal decision. Some homebuyers value the convenience and minimal upkeep of a townhouse, while others are looking for the additional space and personalization offered by a more traditional home. Wherever you might be in your own unique home buying journey, we have a variety of beautiful homes for every chapter of life.
In this third installment of our Address for Every Chapter series, we’ll take a closer look at what makes a traditional home, highlight some of our favorite floor plans, and share where you can find a traditional home in our Pahlisch communities.
What Is a Traditional Home?
We’ve discussed townhomes and cottages in previous blog posts, but how does a traditional home differ from these other housing types? Generally speaking, our traditional homes are categorized as detached, single-family homes. They don’t share any walls with neighbors (like townhomes do), and they include garages at the front of the house instead of the rear-facing garages on our cottages.
When it comes to curb appeal, our traditional homes come in a variety of styles, including the popular farmhouse style and more modern facades. We also unveiled our brand new architectural styles — click here to learn more and see which style speaks to you.
Benefits of Buying a Traditional Home in a Pahlisch Community
Space is usually the biggest deciding factor for buyers considering a traditional home over a townhome or a cottage. But a traditional home from Pahlisch has other added benefits, like more upgrade options and larger lot sizes.
More Space to Grow and Flourish
Our traditional homes have bigger footprints and sit on larger lots than our townhomes and cottages. Depending on the lot size, traditional homes will have nice backyards that allow for landscaping and the opportunity to create a lovely outdoor living space. The bigger square footage in our traditional homes also offers more storage space for things like that landmark spoon set you inherited or your wife’s indoor plant collection.
Options to Personalize Your Dream Home
The larger size of our traditional homes also opens up more possibilities for personalization. Popular options include built-in shelving around the fireplace, landscaping, and higher-end materials in the primary shower. Depending on the floor plan, some homes can have formal dining rooms, more bedrooms, and dens or flex spaces!
Luxury Amenities in Beautiful Communities
Here at Pahlisch, we like to say we don’t just build homes; we create community. Many of our traditional homes, as well as our townhomes and cottages, are built as part of larger master-planned communities. These communities have been thoughtfully designed to enhance the lifestyles of the people who call them home. Buying a home in one of these communities could come with the added bonus of access to state-of-the-art fitness centers, private pools, outdoor entertainment spaces, and other world-class amenities.
Popular Pahlisch Traditional Home Floor Plans
Below, we’ll highlight three of our most popular traditional home floor plans: the Chapman, the Carrington, and the Bentley. All are single-level homes with three bedrooms and at least two baths.
The Chapman is the smallest of our traditional home floor plans at 1,853 square feet with three beds and two baths, but it fits a number of stunning features. From the front door, a cozy hallway takes you past two bedrooms and a full bathroom and into an open great room and kitchen with floating shelves next to the fireplace, full height backsplash, and other lovely details. Another hallway off the great room leads to a primary suite that feels tucked away and private.
Our Chapman floor plan is used in some of our homes throughout Northwest and Central Oregon, as well as Southwest Washington. Use the links below to view the homes and schedule a tour:
The Carrington is a step up in terms of space from the Chapman, with 2,248 square feet, including three beds and three baths. What immediately stands out when you walk in is the vaulted ceiling in the great room, which draws your eyes up to the beautifully finished fireplace and the bright light coming through the tall windows looking out on the backyard. In the primary suite beyond the great room, tile walls in the shower and a freestanding soaking tub make for a peaceful spa-like atmosphere.
Our Quail Ridge community in Southeast Washington features a beautiful example of our Carrington floor plan. Click the link below to learn more or schedule a tour:

At 2,571 square feet with three beds and three baths, the Bentley is the largest of the three traditional home floor plans. This plan is the epitome of gorgeous open-concept living. Right past the den off the entryway is a formal dining room that opens up to a spacious great room with large picture windows and an incredible fireplace with built-ins. A gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances and a dining nook will delight every home cook.
If that weren’t enough, an extended covered front porch and covered back patio with vaulted ceilings create multiple opportunities for outdoor living, from sipping a quiet cup of coffee while the sun rises to throwing a big backyard barbecue with friends and family.
