Architecture: Split Level Style Homes
Split Level Style Homes were found in the Midwest and East in the 1950’s. They gained popularity in the middle 20th century. The suburbs were expanding at this time. They were built to accommodate every activity a family enjoyed. These homes have a main level, upper level, and they usually have a basement.
The main level is the level that has the entryway to the inside of the home. This is the area you will find the main living quarters such as the living room and kitchen. This level also contains two sets of stairs. One set of stairs leads to the upper level of the house while the second set lead to the basement if the house has a basement. The top level of the home is where the bedrooms are located.
