Our neighborhood, Shadowlake Village in Blacksburg,  has a mixture of single 
family homes, duplexes, and townhomes.  Because my husband and I were some of 
the last buyers, we had to buy what was left-- a single family home.  Since 
then I have joked that I have "duplex envy."  Our neighbors who share a porch 
seem to have more fun.  They can have more spaces for hosting people and hang 
out together a lot.  It helped that most of the folks were friends with their 
duplexmates before move-in.
