When looking to move, location is one of the biggest factors. Finding the right home, particularly if you want to make it a permanent move, can be a real challenge. If you are looking to relocate to the Bay Area, you are in luck. Trumark Homes will soon have a variety of homes for sale in the East Bay community of Newark. To find the perfect home for your family, you need to consider what you think is important in a home.

Single-Family or Townhouse

Trumark Homes is in the process of creating a new community in Newark called Timber. The new community will include 84 single-family homes called Shade at Timber and 80 townhouses called Canopy at Timber.

Choosing between a townhouse and single-family home is a personal decision. Some people enjoy the compactness of a townhouse. They like to know their neighbors are right there, if they should ever need help. Other people do not like knowing they are sharing at least one wall with their neighbor. Yard space versus outdoor maintenance might be something else you take into consideration when deciding between Shade and Canopy at Timber.

Size, Bedrooms, and Bathrooms

Homes at Timber will range from about 1,540 square feet to roughly 2,405 square feet, depending upon the floor plan you pick. Family size, amount of personal possessions you need to fit into the home, and home size preference will all be things you will want to take into consideration when picking which floor plan is perfect for you.

When picking a single-family home, buyers have three floor plan options. All three options are three-story homes, and all of the single-family floor plans include four bedrooms and three and a half baths. The two smaller floor plans do include the option for conversion of one of the top floor bedrooms into a loft. This is ideal for someone who wants the single-family home but who really does not need four bedrooms. All three floor plans can be viewed on our website.

Although the townhouses are also all three stories tall, the floor plans are slightly more diverse when it comes to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The 1,540 square foot townhouse includes three bedrooms with a bathroom just off each bedroom. The 1,873 square foot option also includes three bedrooms with a bathroom just off of each bedroom, but there is also a half bathroom just off of the kitchen. The largest townhouse option, at 2,026 square feet, has four bedrooms and three and half bathrooms. These floor plans can also be viewed on our website.


Of course, picking the right home for you is about more than just picking between a single-family home and a townhouse and then finding one with the right square footage, the right number of bathrooms, and the right number of bedrooms. When picking a home, you want to know why that specific home is perfect for you.

All of the Timber homes will include stainless steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchens. The bathrooms have beautiful marble countertops. Both home styles also include ceramic tile at entryways. The tile comes in four color choices. Many of the floor plans also include a second-story deck, great for enjoying the outdoors.
