Subdivision in Oedheim, Germany

Friends of ours live in Oedheim, Germany. This little town is located in between a few larger cities like Heidelberg, Stuttgart, Sindelfingen, and Frankfurt. Though this subdivision is out in the country, the homes located in it are located close to each other. It almost appears that in some instances, two homes are located on one large lot - with the rear home accessing the street via a side driveway. Many structures feature two and three houses with shared party walls.

This is an interesting phenomenon considering how far out in the country we were staying, and our hosts assure us that this is common throughout Germany.

This vacant lot across the street from our hosts' home is valued at approximately €160,000.
