No, I have never owned, nor been in a house or apartment that has separate hot and cold faucets for the sinks.

Faucet pertains to the valve that controls the water flow. If you have 2 valves, you have 2 faucets. Just one nozzle/outlet.

Some people still have them. Generally the separate taps are considered a bit old fashioned and inconvenient.

I think this is up for debate.

Technically you are right, however common usage would disagree with you.
In your example, valve and faucet are synonyms, and you had to go look for the word "nozzle" to describe the "outlet". Common usage has therefore changed faucet to represent the entire assembly of valves and outlets. Just go shop for one.

Brits for the win. Two teats do not a uni-boob make.

My 1917-built wood house in Florida had the ageless, double faucets.

Oversimplification is the devil that destroys us.

"The faucet's broken" - okay, what part? The knob? The nozzle? Do we extend "faucet" to also include the water line attached to it?
