A ‘twin home’, while it looks like a duplex, is really a 2-unit Single Family Residence where each unit is (typically) owned individually and is one of only two units attached by a single wall, façade, ceiling, roof, or garage.
The term ‘twin home’ is no longer used in Paragon. Follow these steps to search for a ‘twin home’.
