Single-story living is becoming a hot real estate trend across multiple purchasing segments.

Downsizing baby boomers are often eager put the mobility issues associated with staircases behind them. Open-concept decorators like the airiness and flexibility of low and flat versus tall and segmented. And decluttering Millennials prefer simple floorplans without bedrooms and closets that will just become a haven for stuff they neither need nor want.

The Bucks County real estate market has plenty single-story designs across multiple price points.
