The Main Line townhouse market is diverse and expanding. See the video and video transcript in the marketing section further down the page for more details. I define townhouse as a residential unit sharing at least one common wall with a neighboring home. It could be a row house or a twin. Townhouse is really a synonym for row house and townhome. Unforunately, there is no common term for all homes that have at least one common wall with a neighbor. Therefore, I'm using townhouse as the best alternative. The detailed listings call out whether a property is a row house or twin.
