What do you call a house that has a yard outside(an enclosed one with walls, though) and two or three rooms inside, and still it's not all that big and luxurious to call it a mansion?
I've searched for it and it seems that "villa" might be an option, however, it's a UK word and I want a US word. Moreover some image searching shows that villas usually have pools in their yards, while we only have a tiny garden with some young apricot and orange saplings and a single palm tree.
It might be just not as common in the English speaker's culture to live in such houses, nevertheless, I need to describe our house in some ways right away!
I also thought about "A large house" but our house is not really that big too. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.
