I always thought a villa was a nice house in a scenic countryside.  Not sure if they are supposed to be connected to anything.  From that picture, the home looks standalone.  The builder may be using the term “villa” for marketing; I’ve noticed some subdivisions in my area doing that too.  There’s a new neighborhood near us which calls their townhomes “manors”, although I think that’s a bit of a stretch.

@MrsN14:  to me, that looks like a ranch style house.  i agree with @bleusteel:  i thought a villa was a small home in the country or on the beach.  like a 2nd home.

That is not a villa. That is a generic ranch style track house. Often developers will name things grandly in the hopes of enticing buyers. Like developments that are calle “Pine Estates” but are actually just regular 1500 sq ft houses.

THIS is a villa:

@bleusteel:  Yup! Like a subdivision near our old apartment called each of the houses an “estate” they were Pineview Estates or something like that. The sign outside said “have your own estate today!” Umm. Yeah, sorry, but that smushed up cookie cutter home is not an estate. lol
