I agree „detached“ is not a very nice tag, because it is mostly used as a short form of „detached_house“ but this is not obvious for non-native speakers.

I don’t agree detached house isn’t a type of building. It is a residential building, usually for one family, without touching neighbouring buildings (detached building), and with a garden around it (usually).
