A free-standing residential building usually housing a single-family.

Known as a single-family home in the United States, a single-detached dwelling in Canada, and a separate house in New Zealand.

If the building shares a wall with another building (forming half of a semi-detached pair, or one of a row of terraced houses) then it should be rather tagged building=house.

Distinction from building=house

A detached house is a subset of a house where it is not connected to other houses. Tagging a detached with building=house is generally seen as acceptable because it is a more general term, so it is a valid tag.
