Semi Detached homes are constructed side by side or back to back in a way that one house mirrors the other, these are like twin houses; normally they are either two or three stories houses. Semi Detached homes were fist designed in London in 19th century. These houses share one common wall so the element of privacy is higher in them as compare to the apartments, condos and townhomes. Shared wall also means that the house will be protected from heat in summers and cold in winters. These houses are also much lesser in price as compared to the single detached home. Semi detached homes in Brampton are best fit for the downtown areas.
