A duplex is a stand-alone structure with two units that share a common wall, but separate entrances. A townhome or row house consists of a row of similar or identical dwellings that are individually owned. Townhomes are typically closer to that of single-family home ownership, without monthly dues or Home Ownership Associations. Each type of unit shares a wall with adjacent dwellings. Townhomes are common in dense urban spaces.
Elements of design:
- Multiple units built adjacent to one another with shared walls
- Units typically mirror one another
- Ownership similar to single-family dwellings
- Common in dense urban areas
