Renting a duplex is an excellent option for those who wish to make a smooth transition from living in an apartment to living in a house, with the most common contenders for duplexes being young couples and their children. A duplex can either consist of a single-floored building with a wall through the bottom, or it could be a ground floor and a basement.
The basic idea is that two families live in the same compound. This could either be two different tenants, or a tenant and the landlord. While this does not offer the privacy that comes with living in an independent house, it is a great way to save on rent, while having to deal with just a fraction of the interference that you are likely to face while living in an apartment.
