Know Your Housing Architecture Styles

Considering buying a new home or selling yours? You may want to pay attention to the styles of houses available. When browsing through the real estate section, here are some of the most common ones you'll discover:

Ranch - A single-story dwelling with a low roof.

Raised ranch - Also known as a "split-level," this home may feature a finished basement with windows to create a lower living space, and a raised roof that offers room for bedrooms above.

Cape Cod - Small, center-hall styled house with a steep roof that allows for living space in the attic. Some will feature an attic dormer to allow for extra space and illumination.

Colonial - A house generally featuring a symmetrical design in floor plan, windows, roof, etc. "Center hall" signifies the main entryway in the center of the house.

Tudor - An English-style, imposing house with fortress lines. Exterior is typically stucco or stone with exposed half timbers.
