This is the architectural style in which your home was built.
A home with one story of living area. The roof structure typically has medium slope. The attic space is limited and is not intended as a living area.
A residence with two levels of living area, characterized by a steep roof slope and dormers (which project from the roof and have windows on their fronts). Because of the roof design, the area of the second floor is usually 40% to 70% of the ground floor area.
A residence with finished living area on two floors. The area of each floor is approximately the same. The roof structure has a medium slope. The attic space is limited and is not intended for living area.
is a style of house in which the floor levels are staggered, so that the "main" level of the house (e.g. the level that usually contains the front entry), is halfway between the the upper and lower floors. The main level typically contains common living areas (a living room, kitchen, dining room, and/or family room).
A residence that is divided side to side, with three levels of finished living area: lower level, intermediate level and upper level. The lower level is immediately below the upper level as in a two-story residence. The intermediate level, adjacent to the other levels, is built on a grade approximately one-half story higher than the lower level. Split-level residences have a split roof design. The Split Level and Tri-Level styles are not available before 1950.
An attached single-family residence. Each town house unit is one of a group of two or more units adjoined by common walls. Such units never have units above or below, always have individual exterior walls, and never have more than two walls common with adjacent units. An End Unit is at the end of a row, with only one other unit adjacent to it. A Center Unit is inside a row, with other units on either side.
A residence designed from combinations of square and rectangular geometric patterns, blending both interiors and exteriors. Contemporary residences typically contain multiple roof lines, where roofs are flat or flat with a slight pitch (shed roof). Exteriors are often plain with little or no ornate trim, typically with extensive use of glass. The designs of these residences are more modern and less traditional. They typically have wide open interiors with fewer partitions than other traditional home styles. The Contemporary style is not available before 1960.
A residence with 2.5 or 3 stories of living area, typical of the architectural style in the late 19th century. Victorians typically have elaborate exterior and interior finishes and trims, including 18" of gingerbread on at least three lines of the house. They also include bay windows, turrets, tall chimneys and extensive porches.
A traditional 2-1/2-story home, usually of pre-1940 construction. Generous use of wood trim, and interior and exterior finishes, with high partition density inside.
A home in the Mediterranean style, including stucco exterior walls, typically pastel or white in color, red tile roof, arched openings and considerable use of wrought iron. Often found with arched windows and balconies.
A home made of adobe brick, found mainly in the southwest region of the United States . Decidedly Western in presentation with various wood beams for both support and ornamentation. Roofs are typically flat and made of brick and are usually coated with Stucco.
A condominium may be simply defined as an "apartment" that the resident owns as opposed to rents.
A large house trailer that can be connected to utilities and can be parked in one place and used as permanent housing. A manucfactured home is identified by the HUD and are generally built entirely in a factory.
