residential=single_family is a subtag of landuse=residential. It is used to indicate that an area is filled with single family, detached houses. These houses often have their own property and are not connected to other buildings.
If the houses are attached to each other, use tags like residential=terrace or residential=duplex.
Single family vs detached
While residential=single_family seems to be much more popular, single family houses are also called detached houses in some countries. The value residential=detached is therefore also sometimes used.
