A town house might conjure up images of well-heeled Dickensian London. But this specific type of property comes in many guises – and at a whole range of prices.
The Oxford Dictionary defines a town house as, “a tall, narrow traditional terraced house, generally having three or more floors.” But, as these six for sale on Zoopla go to show, one town house can still differ dramatically from the next.
