Halifax Houses for Sale - Halifax Residential Real Estate (attached)

Below are some definitions of the different property types in Halifax which are classified as attached homes. Halifax historically enjoyed low housing prices so attached homes were not built. Most residents prefered single family detached homes. With the recent raise in housing starts this may change. However, there are parts of Darthmouth where multi-family dwellings and affordable housing can be found.

Link: This style of housing looks like a separate unit but is linked underground by either a concrete wall connecting two foundations or a steel rod stretching from foundation to foundation. These dwellings may be a two-storey style, bungalow style, etc., but it is most important they be identified as a link. Legal description must be checked carefully to determine if a dwelling is a link.

Semi-detached: This type of housing in Halifax contains two separate dwelling units attached each on its own lot. May share a common wall or be separated by a garage or carport. Styles include semi-bungalow, semi-split, and semi-two-storey.

Double Side-By-Side: This type of housing in Halifax looks like a semi-detached except there are two municipal addresses under the ownership of a single person.

Duplex (Up and Down): This is a building that consists of two dwelling units, one above the other under the ownership of a single person.

Triplex: This is a building which consists of three units, all owned by the same person.

Row Unit: This is a style of housing in which three or more dwelling units of similar design and sizes are attached together, each on its own lot with separate ownership.

Townhouse: Same as above, usually with a garage or carport.

Carriage Home: This design is similar to a row house except the garage is usually situated between two homes, and the garage may allow access to the rear yard via an overhead door.

Apartment: One unit of a complex of self-contained ownership units lying within a low, mid or hi-rise building offering common facilities such as hallways, parking lots, elevators, etc. Each self contained apartment may be on one or more levels.

Court Home: A group of attached dwellings arranged in a checkerboard fashion each with its own courtyard.

Garden Home: A row type unit with a front and back door without a garage.

Residential Attached: Similar to a semi-detached with condominium ownership.
