WHAT DOES SPLIT-LEVEL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Split-level home

A split-level home is a style of house in which the floor levels are staggered, so that the "main" level of the house, is partway between the upper and lower floors. The main level typically contains common living areas. There are typically two short sets of stairs, one running upward to a bedroom level, and one going downward toward a basement area. The basement level is usually finished off, and often contains additional living areas, as well as frequently laundry facilities and other utilities. The basement level often also features a garage, and is usually level with the driveway. Beneath the main level is usually crawl space, or sometimes additional basement space, which is frequently unfinished. A sidesplit is where the split level is visible from the front elevation of the home. A backsplit is where the split level is only visible from the side elevation. The front elevations shows only a single story and the two stories are in the back. A bi-level includes two short sets of stairs and two levels. The entry is between floors. The front door opens to a landing. One short flight of stairs leads up to the top floor; another short flight of stairs leads down.
