Huntington Beach is a very diverse beach town with a great variety of residential homes and condos. For the most part, there are many residential single family homes that were built in the 1950's and 60's with one story level and three to four bedroom floor plans. The city since then has grown much larger and has expanded on this smaller building floor plan. Now many of the homes offer a variety of options including homes that have separate entrances. These can be used for a variety of reasons which are explained here.
First, having a separate entrance is ideal for a guest casita or mother-in-law suite. This works out perfectly for extended family members and out of town guests who need a separate living space from the main house. Having a separate entrance allows for easy access into the living quarters without disturbing the members who live in the main house. Second, we have also seen having a separate entrance that is ideal for renting out a room or section of the house. Most renters will want to have their privacy and having their own entrance adds a lot of appeal for those looking for a rental accommodation. We see this a lot in larger homes that will rent out a smaller section of the home as long as it has it's own entrance. This is also true for mixed use properties that have both residential and commercial living spaces. We have put together a current list of properties on the market for sale here that do come with separate entrances. Please contact any of our Huntington Beach Real Estate agents for further information.
