Some patio homes are tied to pools and recreation areas others golf courses. Their HOA fee are greater.
In recent time the patio homes have become popular due to low maintenance and large sf and the ability to lock them up and travel to the mountains or other areas with less worry than a full house on its own ground. I hope that helps a little...John

Amenities can be offered at all three of the different types of communities - at least here in my neck of the woods. Frequently, its a combination of the maintenance and overall appearance along with that all important real estate aspect - location. Those amenities might include a pool and clubhouse. I would agree with the observation that builders/marketers of these homes have the older demographic in mind.
Best of luck with your home search. - Suz
Do you have a Realtor working for you to find the right home? If not, I'm happy to help! I work with a lot of relocation folks. What is your price range?
I just sold a couple of beautiful patio homes very recently. One was new construction in Thornton at the new Heritage Todd Creek by Lennar. An amazing deal at $330K. 3-car garage, high end finishes throughout. The other was a "resale" patio home in Fox Meadows in Longmont built in early 2000s, but recently remodeled - sold for $365K.
There are some out there that are a little bit older, and can be less expensive, but they're relatively rare. Feel free to give me a call if you have further questions. 970-402-5642.
